This section gives a general background on sound synthesis.

There are various ways to synthesise sound including:

• Analogue electronic synthesisers.
• Digital electronic synthesisers.
• Software synthesisers.
• Hybrids of any of the above.

The synthesis techniques described here apply to all these techniques, although they might implement the techniques in different ways.
