[ghbicsyq] Time delayed overtones

A simple synthesizer, when asked to play a note, computes a weighted sum of frequencies (overtones or harmonics) then (maybe) amplitude modulates the sum.  More complicated would be for the amplitude modulation function to differ for each component of frequency.  For example, early in time in the waveform, low harmonics dominate, but later upper harmonics can be heard.
