The sounds that are heard in everyday life are not characterized by a single frequency.
Instead, they consist of a sum of pure sine frequencies, each one at a different amplitude.
Various forms of audio synthesis have since been introduced, each with its advantages and limitations.
Organic Re Synthesis, which is the driving force behind several new Waves processors, goes beyond other forms of synthesis by combining several sound analysis and manipulation techniques to break any sound, any audio signal, into several core elements, each of which can then be controlled independently.
The timbre of musical instruments can be considered in the light of Fourier theory to consist of multiple harmonic or inharmonic partials or overtones.
Each partial is a sine wave of different frequency and amplitude that swells and decays over time due to modulation from an ADSR envelope or low frequency oscillator.Subtractive synthesis usually consists of the following components: Due to the way subtractive synthesis works, it is used primarily to create and design new sounds, but it is very limited in terms of manipulating an existing sound, or capturing specific characteristics of one sound and applying them to another.This is why Waves has developed Organic Re Synthesis.The pitch-, formant- and time-changing algorithms used, for example, in subtractive synthesis are time-dependent.Organic Re Synthesis algorithms are time-dependent: manipulating one characteristic will not affect the time constants of the others.This maintains clarity and precision of transients and significantly lowers the likelihood of artifacts being introduced.Due of its fully modular structure, Organic Re Synthesis has numerous useful applications for radical yet natural-sounding audio manipulation.The first Waves plugins to employ Organic Re Synthesis technology are: Thanks to Organic Re Synthesis, plugins such as Torque, Smack Attack and Sibilance can perform corrective and creative tasks that no other technology can deliver as surgically and in such an organic-sounding way.Future Waves plugins will use the full range of Organic Re Synthesis capabilities.Organic Re Synthesis-based plugins Organic Re Synthesis is not one product.It is an innovative technology used in already-released and future Waves plugins.
