Description [en]

Freebirth is a free software bass synthesizer / step sequencer / sample player for the linux operating system.

The main window consists of the sequencer, mixer , and bass synth controls for Freebirth. The sequencer is devided into 16 steps. The buttons in the bottom row trigger the bass section. The sliders above each bass step are the pitch controls for the bass for each step. Above that are 5 rows of smaller buttons. These are the triggers for the sampled component of Freebirth. At this moment from top to bottom they are:

• Sample
• Open Hat
• Closed Hat
• Snare
• Kick

The pitch controls for the samples are located in another window.


The bass synthesizer has the following features:

☑ three oscillators (saw, sine, square).
☑ phase offsets for each oscillator.
☑ separate filter and amplitude envelopes.
☑ seperate tuning for each oscillator.

The bass synthesizer is integrated with a step sequencer wich is also capable of triggering 5 other samples. In addition two effect busses (reverb and delay) are provided.
