A new method of Synthesis by Analysis for multi-component signals of fast changing instantaneous attributes is introduced. It makes use of two recent developments for signal decomposition to obtain near mono-component signals whose instantaneous attributes can be used for synthesis. Furthermore, by extension and combination of both decomposition methods, the overall quality of the decomposition is shown to improve considerably.
