Once a musical instrument generates sound vibrations, it reaches the human ear through various mediating objects, each of which significantly affects the
sound. The material and configuration of the instrument, the electric/electronic/magnetic amplifying system, the air and the reverberation of the room all
affect the final sound. Sound modeling, the latest DSP technology, “virtually” reconstructs these objects. Roland’s breakthrough Composite Object Sound
Modeling (COSM) uses the advantages of multiple modeling methods and succeeds in accurately emulating existing sounds, as well as producing sounds that have never before been created.
