Synthropy (

Bad assed sounds!


Synthropy is a music synthesizer for Windows, OSX, OpenBSD and Linux.

It is keyboard-driven with some mouse/touchpad/gamepad input (optionally).

I am not a musician, but I like music and making sounds. At the moment this synth works as *I* would imagine it in my crazy mind!

Synthropy is written in the C programming language using SDL2. The program does its own mixing and does not rely on SDL2_mixer. It can save and play RIFF/WAVE files too!

The program generates its own waveforms, and as far as it can be done is written in low-level code.

My preference is to do most things from scratch, as you learn more and it feels kinda cool too!

I really hope you enjoy making some sounds!!!


Here is a quick recording: example.wav.

What's new???
