English to Italian: Synth Engine Description
Detailed field: Music
Source text - English
The XX-X High Definition synthesizer, which is the PCM synthesis engine of the XXXXX, uses a newly designed oscillator.

The PCM waveforms are 16-bit 48 kHz uncompressed data. They include a total of more than 1 Gigabyte of meticulously-recorded stereo samples and long samples. Each voice has oscillators (two oscillators allowing four-stage velocity switching/crossfading/layering) that can use up to eight (stereo) multisamples, up to four filters (two filters each with four modes and four routings), two amps, five LFOs, and five EGs, all available simultaneously.

Each voice (oscillator, filter, amp, etc.) provides a generous array of modulation functions and parameters, letting you construct intricate and rich sounds.

The XXX Concert Grand Piano extended PCM library consists of a lavish 503 MB of long stereo samples, captured for each key at four levels of dynamics.

In addition, the Note-On Control function reproduces the sympathetic string vibration that occurs when you hold down the damper pedal. When you hold down the damper pedal and strike a key, the sympathetically vibrating strings will also sound, faithfully replicatine the depth and transparency of an acoustic piano.
Translation - Italian
Il synth XX-X High Definition, il motore di sintesi PCM di XXXXX, sfrutta un nuovo oscillatore appositamente progettato per la workstation.

Le waveform PCM sono costituite tutte da dati digitali non compressi con risoluzione a 16-bit e frequenza di campionamento a 48 kHz, e includono oltre 1 Gbyte di campioni stereo meticolosamente registrati per garantire la massima fedeltà audio. Ogni singola voce offre due oscillatori (per velocity switch/crossfade/layering a quattro livelli) e può sfruttare contemporaneamente fino ad otto multicampioni (stereo), fino a quattro filtri (ognuno dei quali con quattro modalità e quattro opzioni di routing), due amp, cinque LFO e cinque EG (Generatori di Inviluppo).

Ogni voce (oscillatore, filtro, amp, etc.) si avvale di numerose funzioni di modulazione per una vasta gamma di parametri, il che permette di assemblare sonorità e timbri come nessun altro synth è capace di fare.

La libreria XXX Concert Grand Piano offre ben 503 Mbyte di lussureggianti campioni stereo dalla durata estesa, tutti catturati per ciascuna nota con quattro livelli di dinamica.

È stata inoltre implementata una nuova funzione Note-On Control in grado di riprodurre le vibrazioni simpatetiche delle corde del pianoforte che si verificano nel momento in cui si utilizza il pedale damper (sustain). In questo caso, tenendo premuto il pedale e suonando una nota, XXXXX riproduce anche le piccole vibrazioni delle corde adiacenti, in modo da ricreare perfettamente il comportamento e la trasparenza timbrica di un vero piano acustico gran coda.

Certified PROs.jpg

Highly specialized in every aspect of music business, from musical Instrument's manuals to Music Theory and applications; hundreds of user manuals already translated, plus thousands of advertising leafsheets.

I have been working as a sound/light engineer in England for several years, gaining a very deep knowledge of the modern musical instruments and the technology that lies underneath. In the last 3 years I have expanded my working fields into subtitling of TV series, movies and documentaries for a well know online streaming company.
