In this chapter different sound-based synthesis methods used in commercial synthesizers today are briefly reviewed. They are directly based on 1-D time-dependent sound signals, either by producing sounds with different artificial mathematical rules or by processing of existing sounds. Short overviews of these methods can also be found in Välimäki and Takala, 1996; Rabenstein and Trautmann, 2000a.
