Additive synthesis on a CPU and memory constrained ARM platform

Additive synthesis on a CPU and memory constrained ARM platform

The Korg Prologue and Minilogue-XD feature the ability to load digital user-oscillators that extend the range of possible sounds. Good candidates for these are emulations of oscillators from early digital/analogue hybrid synthesisers, replicating waveforms and wavetables from instruments such as the Korg DW-8000 , the Kawai K3 , the Ensoniq ESQ-1 and PPG Wave . But, there is a catch. Logue plugins run on a relatively slow processor, an ARM Cortex M4, with only 32KiB of shared code and data space.
