Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9965016A1] A synthesizer system includes a CPU and host memory operating a software routine. The software routine stores a first part of each waveform signal in a sample pool (40) of host memory and provides remaining portions of selected musical sounds from the hard drive (22) to a stream cell array (42) without an audio perceivable delay. The synthesizer system utilizes a caching system which allow low cost, high storage devices to be utilized in an audio synthesizer system. MIDI control signals are provided to an audio processor for selecting appropriate digital waveform signals.
