SYNTH is a new alternative video game for a high-end MS windows PC's. SYNTH was designed and developed by Rhys Paul Hovey. In it's current version (1.666) it has been over two years in the making. SYNTH is 100% mathematically / proceedurally generated. This means that for all of SYNTH's graphics and levels, there is a mathematical function or process from which it was made, making it a very difficult game to program, and in the end quite scalable and unusual. Typically the graphics in a video game are "modeled" by artists with mouse and pen-like touch pads. Everything in SYNTH has a mathematical / algorithmic representation.

Development of SYNTH video game continues, with a new and revived focus on graphics and -DAMSIN MUSIC MACHINE- the sound "synth" behind SYNTH. Synth now features high resolution "sample guided / real time" wavetable synthesis.

Development of SYNTH video game continues, with several new features and graphical enhancements to be ready in next release. I am most proud of some of the new audio features to come to SYNTH which include "sample guided" wavetable oscillators. This has been in response to some user "suggestions" that it would be nice if SYNTH did some real time generator of audio. Most of SYNTH's audio is "samples" and all the real time generation has been in the form of real time sequence remixing.

UNTIL NOW !!! :)

So what are these "sample guided wavetable oscillators"?? And how is it cool??

Well, a sample guided wavetable oscillator, is a synthetic sound generator, that generates evolving single cycle waveform signals. Traditionally, this type of sound generator uses "tables" of pre-generated waveforms, to produce it's "evolving pad" sounds. Thanks to the power of today's modern PC's, SYNTH video game is proud to present (real time wavetable generator, or sample guide). This means that the SYNTH sound generators, aren't limited to a precomputed wave-table, but create "wavetables" on the fly, based on samples, and other data sources. What this means, is:

Complete "songs" / sequences can be generated at full CD quality, uncompressed, with almost NO download overhead to the "file size". YIP, synth is still only 24 megs to download :)

* A wide arrange of new "one time only" sound effects can be generated

AND

They just plain SOUND COOL!! and they are also available in DAMSIN MUSIC MACHINE, which is soon to be released!!

STAY TUNED!!!!!!!!!!! for SYNTH 1.656!!!
