The Next Generation Of Additive Synthesis?

US VirSyn Releases AddStation for iPad/iPhone      01/09/20

Virsyn has released AddStation for iPad/iPhone, which they describe as the next generation of additive synthesis. This is what they have to say about it...

Additive synthesis is a sound synthesis technique that creates timbre by adding sine waves together. The timbre of musical instruments can be considered to consist of multiple harmonic or inharmonic partials or overtones. VirSyn already has a remarkable track record of products e.g. CUBE and POSEIDON trying to make this virtually unlimited synthesis method manageable for creative sound designers and musicians. AddStation is the next step forward giving you a tool to explore completely new sonic territory. The massive amount of sine waves in AddStation - thousands per voice - together with unique morph sequencing blocks blur the frontiers between analog and digital sonic realms.

And all this integrated in all relevant iOS production environments especially the emerging AUv3 AudioUnit standard.
