This paper summarizes our work adapting a recursive digital resonator for use on sixteen-bit fixed-point hardware. The modified oscillator is a two-pole filter with error properties expressly matched to use in the range of frequencies relevant to additive synthesis of digital audio. We present the algorithm, error analysis, performance analysis, and measurements of an implementation on a fixed-point vector microprocessor system.
