wave table synthesis
Last modified: Tuesday, July 08, 1997 

A technique for generating sounds from digital signals. Wave table synthesis stores digital samples of sound from various instruments, which can then be combined, edited, and enhanced to reproduce sound defined by a digital input signal. Wave table synthesis reproduces the sound of musical instruments better than Frequency Modulation (FM) synthesis.

The MIDI standard supports a wave table format. Not all sound cards, however, support wave table synthesis.
