|Linear Arithmetic 32|
1.) LA Synthesis
The Linear Arithmetic 32 (LA32) is an audio chip designed around 1987 by Roland and used in several of their synthesizers. The chip uses traditional subtractive synthesis combined with PCM-based samples on the attack portion of the instrument to give a sound superior to what subtractive synthesis can achieve alone.
The term "linear arithmetic" is derived from the facts that the synthesis is all digital (linear) and a summing (arithmetic) of sounds.
The chip features 8 melody channels of LA synthesis and 1 rhythm channel.
The following synthesizers and sound cards utilized the LA32:

By its very nature, the Munt MT-32 emulator, emulates the LA32 chip.
