How to Build Your Very Own String Synth with DSP Synthesizers Codename Solina


You might remember DSP Synthesizers Codename Solina. If you'd like to build your own, you'll find instructions on how to do so on the DSP Synthesizers site here.

"The Eminent Solina is a fameous string synthesizer from the 70’s. It is based on a paraphonic oscillator, a simple envelope and a phaser.

The oscillators in the original was a divide down structure where you generate the frequencys for the top octave and divide those down by modulo 2 for the rest of the octaves.

We can’t really use a signal for every key so we use an alogorithm for generating 8 Saw waves and distribute those among the keys played on the keyboard.

Paraphonic means it’s kind of polyphonic but shares some parts of the soundpath. In this case it’s the envelope shared by all the keys played on the keyboard..." See DSP Synthesizers for more.
