The Eminent Solina is a famous string synthesizer from the 70’s.
It is based on a paraphonic oscillator, a simple envelope and a phaser.

The oscillators in the original was a divide down structure where you generate the frequencies for the top octave and divide those down by modulo 2 for the rest of the octaves.

We can’t really use a signal for every key so we use an alogorithm for generating 8 Saw waves and distribute those among the keys played on the keyboard.

Paraphonic means it’s kind of polyphonic but shares some parts of the soundpath.
In this case it’s the envelope shared by all the keys played on the keyboard.

So what does it sound like?”
