    Sintesi additiva
    Tecnica di sintesi che permette di realizzare un suono o forma d’onda complessa a partire da elementi semplici come i suoni sinusoidali, seguendo la legge di sovrapposizione di Fourier.

    Synthèse additive
    La synthèse additive consiste à fabriquer un son ou une forme d’onde complexe à partir d’éléments simples comme des sons sinusoïdaux en suivant la loi de superposition ou loi de Fourier (Source: Barry Truax - Handbook for Acoustic Ecology CD-ROM Edition.

    Síntesis Aditiva
    La síntesis aditiva describe la construcción de un tono o forma de onda compleja a partir de elementos simples, como las ondas sinusoidales, de acuerdo con la ley de superposición o síntesis de Fourier.

    Additive synthesis describes the building up of a complex tone or waveform from simpler elements such as sine waves according to the law of superposition or fourier synthesis. (Source: Barry Truax - Handbook for Acoustic Ecology CD-ROM Edition. Cambridge Street Publishing, 1999 - CSR-CDR 9901)
