Wavetable Synthesis 101, A Fundamental Perspective

Document Thumbnail

Wavetable synthesis is both simple and straightforward in implementation and sophisticated and subtle in optimization. For the case of quasi-periodic musical tones, wavetable synthesis can be as compact in data storage requirements and as general as additive synthesis but requires much less real-time computation. This paper shows this equivalence, explores some suboptimal methods of extracting wavetable data from a recorded tone, and proposes a perceptually relevant error metric and constraint when attempting to reduce the amount of stored wavetable data.
