This chapter reviews audio signal processing techniques related to sound generation via additive synthesis. Particular focus will be put on sinusoidal modeling. Each processing stage involved in obtaining a sinusoidal representation for audio signals is described. Then, synthesis techniques that allow reconstructing an audio signal based on a given parametric representation are presented. Finally, some audio applications where sinusoidal modeling is employed are briefly discussed.
