L. Wave Package

Similar to a sampler the Wave Packages Synthesis uses wave samples to generate the sound. It uses several (3-5) compressed (*.wma or *.mp3) samples to cover a wide ranges of tones.

You can modify these wave samples with your own ADSR envelope and effect settings.

Unlike Sound Fonts it separates the sound samples from the effect settings, so that you can use a basic Wave Package set of 100 samples in combination with let say 200 effect settings to produce 100 x 200 = 20000 sounds without requiring a huge amount of memory space.
