Additive Synthesis

Sound Production and Manipulation [SPM]  >  Synthesis and Resynthesis Techniques  ]

Additive synthesis describes the building up of a complex tone or waveform from simpler elements such as sine waves according to the law of superposition or fourier synthesis. (Source: Barry Truax - Handbook for Acoustic Ecology CD-ROM Edition. Cambridge Street Publishing, 1999 - CSR-CDR 9901)
