- In additive synthesis , pure tones are added together to create more complex composite timbres
- In theory , a complex timbre that has been analysed into its sinusoidal components can then be reconstructed by means of additive synthesis
- Spectrum analysis is fundamentally important for additive synthesis because samples alone do not inform the spectral constituents of a sampled sound
- The concept of register - stops of organs is very similar to the idea of additive synthesis : complex timbres result from the addition of different components to the spectrum of a sound
- Additive synthesis has the advantage that the many micro - variations in the frequency and amplitude of individual partials , that make natural sounds so rich and lively , can be recreated
Additive synthesis is a sound synthesis technique that creates timbre by adding sine waves together.
