Cool VL tech info from the inventor

Julius Smith at Stanford invented the methods of digital waveguide synthesis. Stanford still holds the patents which were licensed by Yamaha for the VL series.

Here is a nice guide to DWS and even a full book for the really technically inclined. You can download a pdf of the guide, not the online book.
