Waveshaping synthesis, a newly developed tool for the generation of musical sounds, is described. The method is well suited to implementation on a digital computer and is both economical and flexible. In addition it provides a unified conceptual framework for a number of nonlinear techniques, including frequency-modulation synthesis. Both the theory and practice of the method are developed fairly extensively, beginning with simple but useful forms and proceeding to more complex and richer variations.
