Ocean: Yet Another Machine for Orchestral Synthesis
Gnusic was designed about five years ago to provide orchestral synthesis. Despite 512 voices per card, the synthesis capability was limited due to the FM synthesis algorithm. This new machine uses wavetable synthesizers attached to RISC processors. The processors can change the wavetable memory on the fly, while the synthesis chips read the wavetables without processor interference.
