Sample text

Direct digital synthesis has several advan­ tages over synthesis with analog hardware-accuracy, repeatability, and generality. The signals inside a computer are highly accurate, and so the attributes and timings of the sounds produced can be precisely realized because numerical values with considerable accuracy can be used to describe them. A related advantage is repeatability. Because of the accuracy of the direct digital synthesis, every time the computer executes a given list of instructions and data, it will produce the same results.

Proliferate and new programs were devised to suit local circumstances. 5 dis­ plays a "family tree" of the sound synthesis programs that evolved from Mathews's ear­ liest experiments in the late 1950s to the situation in the early 1980s. The geographical dispersion of the languages also indicates structural differences among them. The figure is roughly chronological from top to bottom. The center of the tree shows the programs developed by Mathews and his group at Bell Laboratories. The branch on the right shows variants of Music 4 that Godfrey Win­ ham and Hubert S.
