AlgoMusic CZynthia

AlgoMusic has announced the release of CZynthia, a dual phase distortion virtual synthesizer for Windows.

Czynthia is a dual PD (Phase Distortion) virtual synthesizer. Each synth is arranged in 3 basic blocks, not unlike those of a classic analog synthesizer: Pitch > Phase > AMP

Note: While this VSTi is inspired by the original Casio CZ series of synthesizers produced in the 1980’s, it does not seek to emulate it.

CZynthia features

  • Two Phase Distortion Oscillator sections each offering two sets of 8 waveforms.
  • Three 8 stage envelopes each synth for control of pitch, phase and amplitude.
  • LFO (BPM synced or free running) offering 22 waveforms, rate and delay with pitch and phase destinations.
  • Pulsar module for algorithmic style pitch/phase modulation. (BPM synced)
  • Ring modulation, detune and transpose controls.
  • Volume and panorama controls for stereo imaging and master volume.
  • Scale generator for force scaling of notes. Choice of 8 scales with root key selection.
  • Powerful multi FX section offering 7 simultaneous stereo effects: EQ, Rotor, Metal, Wah, Delay, Chorus, Reverb.

CZynthia is available as a VST instrument plug-in for Windows PC for $39.95 USD / 27.95 EUR.

MaxScore features

  • Play back a score and drive your MSP patches through a well-defined instrument interface.

  • Exports to MusicXML so you can load your scores into Finale and Sibelius. Also exports to the GNU LilyPond automated engraving system.

A manual for MaxScore is available for download in PDF format.

MaxScore, commissioned by “Bipolar – German-Hungarian Cultural Projects” (an initiative of the Federal Cultural Foundation of Germany), was programmed in Java Music Specification Language by Nick Didkovsky. While MaxScore is freely available to the public, it requires a JMSL license to run (available at AlgoMusic).
