Software vs. Hardware Synthesis; A Reconciliation
An integrated computer music system is described which combines an Emulator II polyphonic digital sampling keyboard and a Macintosh personal computer to permit flexible analysis, modification, and synthesis of musical signals. System capabilities include algorithms such as weighted overlap-add phase vocoder, non-linear waveshaping, time-varying additive synthesis, Karplus Strong, graphical editing of synthesis parameters and waveforms, and efficient real-time performance of sounds.
