Sound synthesis

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The sound synthesis is a method for the production of artificial or modification of natural sounds .

The first widespread form of sound synthesis is subtractive synthesis , mainly because it can be easily implemented with analog circuits alone . The FM synthesis was only with the transition to digital technology used successfully, since it the high demands on the frequency stability of each other to be coupled oscillators requires. Additive synthesis is even more complex , as the number of oscillators required to generate the overtones of a sound is multiplied compared to FM synthesis.

Wavetable synthesis can no longer be realized at all with analog means, but at least requires less computing power than granular synthesis and physical modeling , which can only be used meaningfully on modern computers.
