Entries found for search: subtractive synthesis

subtractive synthesis : The technique of arriving at a desired timbre by filtering waveforms rich in harmonics. Subtractive synthesis is the type generally used on analog synthesizers. This works well on good analogue synthesizerss, but when used on samples, reducing the number of harmonics usually just makes the sound flat and lifeless. Also called analog synthesis. See additive synthesis, sound synthesis.
