Using additive resynthesis to avoid sample clearance?

What is additive synthesis good for?

The ability to control the inharmonic partials of a sound makes additive synthesis ideal for creating detuned sounds, such as bell tones.

What are additive synthesis techniques?

In additive synthesis, you start out with nothing and build a sound by combining multiple sine waves of differing levels and frequencies. As more sine waves are combined, they begin to generate additional harmonics. In most additive synthesizers, each set of sine waves is viewed and used much like an oscillator.

What might be an example of additive synthesis?

For example, a harmonic sound could be restructured to sound inharmonic, and vice versa. Sound hybridisation or “morphing” has been implemented by additive resynthesis.
