Project Description

amsynth is a software synth that provides a classic subtractive synthesizer topology, with

  • Dual oscillators with classic waveforms - sine / saw / square / noise
  • 12/24 dB/oct low/high/band-pass resonant filter
  • Independent ADSR envelopes for filter & amplitude
  • LFO which can modulate the oscillators, filter, and amplitude
  • Distortion
  • Reverb

Currently it runs as a stand-alone application on Linux, supporting OSS, ALSA and JACK for Audio / MIDI I/O.

It is also available as a DSSI and LV2 plug-in.

Please head over to the Wiki for more information and documentation.
