Spring Waves

TipTop Audio Spring Waves


Spring Waves brings a set of Physical behaviour modelling algorithms to the Tiptop Audio zDSP Voltage Controlled Signal Processor. It dives deep into the experimental digital sound design techniques known as Waveguide Synthesis: a 1998 patent of Stanford University developed by Julius 0. Smith III – a step forward from Karplus-Strong techniques. In addition to that are two Spring models making real Newtonian physics calculation at sample rate.
