I am the programmer / designer of SYNTH. (Rhys Hovey) A C64/COCO2 kid at heart (I think I'm still a 64 kid :),. I've worked at several games companies,. EA,Ubisoft,Rockstar,Climax,.. and "others",.. I've worked very hard to try to bring you a unique experience with SYNTH(tm),. check it out,.. but make sure you have a good CPU and GPU :),.. Making this 3D game and it's graphics all with C++ programming, left optimization secondary :) (it's not that bad though) it's an 8 thread app :)

DAMSIN SPLASH NEW

Hello MODDB! It's been a long time, but I'm back on Moddb, and I have a gift for you. The DAMSIN MUSIC MACHINE DEMO 1B. It is a very functional demo, and does not put blips or anything into the audio stream, and it does not time out (It does -not- save your song files, is the limitation). So you can use the "what you hear" audio outputs to re-sample, and use DAWS or whatever you like, free! DAMSIN is a great and fast tool to help build and inspire your game/mod soundtracks, or to just play around with some crazzy sounds for fun. No need for any plugins or externals. It's in the file section now! Much More info at: Sites.google.com

Thanks! Rhys

Thanks for the compliments :),. SYNTH is slow I know,. unfortuantly optimizations take a lot of time (i'm the math-artist and programer),. I decided to have more game, instead of a faster,. less detailed game,. some of the graphical tricks in there are -really- expensive as well (texture fetch H_LL),. not to mention that SYNTH is now a "10 thread" application. BUT I do have some good news for anyone who is interested,. the latest version in download has a framerate increase of around 20% or more from the previoous (depending on GPU),. so you shouod see something better,.

This is my computer specs and framerate (at opening,. "in game")

9 FPS (on open)
2.33 CORE 2 DUO with 4 Megs Cache
nVidia 9800 GTX+ (512)
DDR2 667 (dual ported)

The good news for SYNTH is that on my system,. the GPU is 25% idle still so within the next few months I may be able to harnass this,. my CPU is kinda slow though,.

Hey, I tried out your game SYNTH. I was getting 9 - 15 FPS. Awesome game, confusing at first. I figured it out, though.

This is what I played it on:
Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 @ 3.9GHz
GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB (Stock)
4096 MB DDR2 [391.1 MHz (16:15) @ 4-4-4-12]

So, I'd have to say.. that's a lot of code and calculation. I can run Crysis maxed with around 30 - 40 FPS. lol Great job!
