Yamaha unveils Virtual Acoustic synthesis

Taking advantage of the latest capabilities of the Pentium III processor Yamaha Corp. has developed software for creating polyphonic sound with a Virtual Acoustic synthesizer.

The Poly-VL, a plug-in module for the Yamaha SoftSynthesizer S-YXG100, can reproduce music approaching the realism of a live music performance, according to company officials.

Yamaha SoftSynthesizer enables the playback of MIDI data even without dedicated hardware such as an external tone generator or a sound card.

Virtual Acoustic synthesis builds a virtual instrument and then creates sound by simulating the way a real musical instrument generates sound.

The new Poly-VL utilizes Pentium III processing to generate eight-voice polyphony with VA synthesis.
