Polyphony: on-demand digital music delivered to every room in your house. Polyphony aims to be the intelligent choice in home audio management and delivery.
Multiplicity of sounds, as in the reverberations of an echo.
Plurality of sounds and articulations expressed by the same vocal sign.
Composition in mutually related, equally important parts which share the melody among them; contrapuntal composition; -- opposed to homophony, in which the melody is given to one part only, the others filling out the harmony. See Counterpoint.
several voice parts acting independently, not singing same words at the same time; opposite is monophony
The number of tones, voices or notes a synthesiser/MIDI instrument can produce simultaneously.
Music with multiple lines of melody playing at once. This is different from homophony, which normally has only line of melody with supporting harmony.
This is how many notes can be played simultaneously. For instance, a monophonic synth can only play one key at a time.
The number of different sounds that may be simultaneously heard. A unit with 4 note polyphony will cut the first note short if a fifth note is played on top of it.
The number of voices a synthesiser can play at any one time.
A musical form that gained popularity in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries in which several vocal or instrumental parts or melodies are combined simultaneously.
8th century music involving with two or more melodies.
the number of notes that can sound similtaneously on a keyboard.
the employment of several different melodies at the same time agtime rhythm characterized by strong syncopation in the melody with a regular accompaniment
Musical texture in which two or three lines simultaneously sound, each line retaining its identity.
music arranged in parts for several voices or instruments
A musical technique where many voices are singing at once (or many instruments are playing at once), but each one has its own melody. None of the voices are meant to back any of the others up, i.e. there is no harmony. It can sound chaotic at times.
The maximum number of notes that a Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI) output device can play simultaneously.
music that combines several simuftaneous musical lines, as opposed to homophony (one line)
describes the number of notes or voices a synthesizer can play. Eight-voice polyphony equals an eight-note chord.
Two or more melodies played at the same time.
Greek term for “many sounds”; interweaving a number of melodic lines or parts; polyphonic is texture in which two or more melodies sound at the same time
The number of notes that can be played simultaneously.
The number of notes an instrument can play simultaneously (for example, 24-voice or 24-note polyphony).
From the Greek for "many-sounding." Music in which two or more "voices" are heard simultaneously; as opposed to monophonic ("one-sounding") and homophonic ("like-sounding"). See counterpoint.
The simultaneous sounding of two or more melodies of equal importance; also known in jazz as "collective improvisation;" the simultaneous expression of two or more instruments improvising with equal individual melodic and counter-melodic significance (e.g., polyphony is a key element in Dixieland jazz.).
Ring tones consisting of several components. When played simultaneously they create an effect of the natural sounding. The technical specifications for the phones usually specify the polyphony tonality. The higher the number — the better: the sound is more voluminal and natural.
music consisting of several (two or more) melodic lines, each having individual significance and independence
The number of notes that a digital piano is capable of playing at once. This includes notes that are sustaining while new notes are played over the top. High polyphony is important to ensure that the digital piano can play even the most complex passages without running out of notes.
(pull-LIFF-fuh-nee) Literally "many voices": the mixing together of several melodic lines in a pleasant fashion. Counterpoint is certainly an element which creates polyphony.
Music which uses several independent vocal lines simultaneously; the predominant early music style, replaced by homophony, in which the music moves chordally (for example, like a hymn).
(po-lif'-o-ne) Music or musical texture with two or more simultaneous voice-lines rationally ordered together;
(Many-sounds) A synthesizer that can play two or more notes or sounds at the same time is said to be polyphonic. This allows for chords to be played and much more.
The ability to sound more than one note at the same time. 8-voice polyphony the ability to sound eight separate notes at once.
The number of voices (notes) a device can produce simultaneously.
the simultaneous combination of different melodies and rhythms
"Many sounds". Music that has many notes sounding together, either in a chordal, or countrapuntal setting.
Polyphony (literature) is a feature of narrative, which includes a diversity of points of view and voices. Concept was invented by Mikhail Bakhtin.
