Synthesizer

From the ALSA wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

A synthesizer is a hardware capability of a soundcard which can be used to generate an audio stream from software rather than from recordings. To emulate a real musical instrument, sample notes are recorded and stored in a wavetable. The synthesizer steps through the wavetable reading out and playing back the sample values. Altering the step size when reading the wavetable allows the synthesis of notes with different frequencies.
