Default Can synthesizers synthesize multiphonic sounds if anyone knows?

I was thinking of getting one but this would be a huge deciding factor in it. Every synth piece of music I listen to, doesn't seem to have multiphonics so I am assuming no, but maybe they can and no one does it possibly, if anyone knows? Thanks for any information on it!

Do you mean polyphonic? There are plenty of synths that play multiple notes at once if that's what you're asking...

But yeah, a lot of synth based musicians prefer analog monophonic synths simply because of how good they sound.

I looked up the definitions of both and I think I mean multiphonic. It's hard to explain because I am not allowed to post any music examples here yet.

For example a synth can emulate flute sounds, which is what I want it more. However, when a real flute blown into real hard, it has that overblown sound. I read it was called multiphonics.

But I wonder can a synthesizer, emulating a flute, also emulate that hard overblown multiphonics as well, if that makes sense?
