Apple: Bizarre Synthesizer Patent

 Macnn Uspto Uspto 070213 Fig2B

This link takes you to a page describing a new synthesizer patent from Apple.

It seems like they are trying to generate soundwaves on a scale that stay within BPM of the music?? I don't quite understand this.
Maybe it allows some kind of time-stretch that works in realtime for a virtual instrument that is playing notes. This would allow them to pitch shift, render it, and not lose any quality.

Its either that, or some kind of ringtone thing for iPhone.
