New Form of Digital and Analog Sound Synthesis Based on Tropical Algebra

This one is in via Giorgio Sancristoforo, the man behind GLEETCHLAB/GLEETHCHPLUG, and BERNA 2.

"I've release our paper on Tropical Additive Synthesis, a new for of analog or digital sound synthesis based on Tropical Algebra created by me with the mathematician Cristiano Bocci."

Details from Giorgio Sancristoforo's website where you can find a PDF download of his paper on the new synthesis method.

"Tropical additive synthesis is a new form of digital and analog sound synthesis that uses Tropical Algebra.

You are free to use this paper for commercial (software and hardware) musical instruments, both in digital or analog form, at the following conditions:

1) The module must display a “trop(x[n])” logo with Times New Roman font (italic) in white, over a red background (color hex code: 84120a)
2) The user manual must credits the authors: “trop(x[n]), tropical additive synthesis ©2018 Cristiano Bocci and Giorgio Sancristoforo”

The number of oscillators can vary between 2 and 10. But this is just a suggestion.
If you need help with the oscillator’s development, please drop me a line and I’d be glad to help you."

  1. trop(x[n]) appears to be the sequential minima of all respective functions. I have difficulty understanding how that could be copyrighted. It is a bit like copyrighting the number of the letter J on any printed page.
