oversampling efficiency in polyphonic synths

April 10, 2010 | 3:04 pm

If i have a polyphonic FM synth using poly~ and i want to oversample, what do people think is the most efficient strategy?

1 – use one, single voice "master poly~" patch that is upsampled (with antialiasing filters before the outputs). Inside this poly would be another poly with say 8 voices for my synth.

2 – have an 8 voice poly~ and put another (oversampled) poly~ inside each voice for as little of the signal path as possible (including antialiasing filters before downsampling).

I suppose i have to try it and see…
