Description [fr]

Un synthétiseur virtuel LV2 produisant des sons imprévisibles, par la Newtonator Team (Michael Bechard aka gothmagog / Perry R. Cook & Gary P. Scavone pour la boîte à outils de synthèse en C++).

Le Newtonator est un synthétiseur virtuel LV2 (son protocole de communication) utilisant un algorithme unique basé sur des idées simples de vitesse et d'accélération pour produire des sons imprévisibles.
Étant un synthétiseur LV2, il ne fonctionne que sur Linux, et pour le moment ce n'est qu'un plugin de synthétiseur LV2; il n'existe aucune version autonome.

Ce n'est pas un doux synthétiseur typique, en ceci que ses principales capacités sonores ne sont pas conduites par des oscillateurs (même si des oscillateurs l'aident à moduler certains paramètres) ou des générateurs de sons de synthétiseurs classiques. Au contraire, la source sonore principale provient d'un algorithme basé sur les principes de l'accélération et de la vitesse.

Description [en]

The Newtonator is an LV2 soft synth that uses a unique algorithm based on simple ideas of velocity and acceleration to produce some unpredictable sounds. Being an LV2 synth, it only works on Linux, and at the moment there is only an LV2 synth plugin; there is no stand-alone version.

If you want to run this synth, you'll need to download the source and compile it. There are instructions in the README file included in the source. You will need CMake installed in order to compile.

It is not a typical soft synth, in that the main sound-making capabilities of it are not driven by oscillators (though oscillators do help modulate some parameters) or other typical synthy sound generators. Rather, the main sound source is from an algorithm based on the principals of acceleration and velocity. There may or may not be an official name for this type of audio synthesis, I don't know. For now let's just call it Tuna Pagan Fellowship.


☑ LV2-compliant synth plugin
☑ Simple, easy-to-use GTK-based GUI
☑ 3-note polyphony (err, um, until I can do some serious optimization)
☑ "Unique" synthesis algorithm (Tuna Pagan Fellowship)
