This section gives a general background on sound synthesis.

There are various ways to synthesise sound including:

  • Analogue electronic synthesisers.
  • Digital electronic synthesisers.
  • Software synthesisers.
  • Hybrids of any of the above.

This section describes techniques that can be applied to all of these types of synthesisers, but the implementation is different in each case.
