  • SynthMaker?

  • I’m pretty sure Terry uses SynthEdit, and I believe he writes most of the DSP code for it as well.

  • Just for the record, I ask not out of any prejudice – you know, I just find development interesting. I personally wish I knew more how some plugins were coded. The few times I’ve tried to use SynthEdit… baffled.

  • Yeah, many SynthEdit and SynthMaker plug-ins are top notch quality. Some developers code all DSP code and just use SE/SM for the GUI (i.e. I believe Sylenth1 was done in SynthEdit).
    Unfortunately there’s also a lot of (sub)standard SE/SM garbage out there, making it harder for proper developers to be taken seriously when using these programs.

    I tried doing some simple synths in SE myself but found it much harder than I expected. In the end I only released one little plug-in: http://rekkerd.org/little-critters-vsti/

    Basically a simple rompler with some stock effects.
