AbstractWhen a musical sound is generated electronically, it is important to have a good model with parameters allowing an intuitive manipulation of the sound. The musician-user must be able to develop a musical intuition which will allow experimenting with the synthesis technique used. In this article we present a general view of digital synthesis, concentrating on two lines of research which will surely allow us to shatter the limitations which exist in methods used till now and finally manage an answer to the promises which computer music made in the 60's.
