Benoit Rostykus and Pierre-André Savalle have released Spicy Guitar, a real-time acoustic guitar synthesis software based on a new synthesis method.

The Spicy Guitar project is the product of one year’s work by two students at the Ecole Centrale Paris. We wanted to combine our passion for music, specifically the guitar, with our experience in the sciences.

Thanks to an original idea, we have developed a real-time sound synthesis software simulating acoustic guitar tones. It is based on physical modeling algorithms inspired by research works on modal synthesis, physical modeling, and convolution technology.

Spicy Guitar features

  • Physical Modeling – Based on acoustic research. Powerful real-time algorithms.
  • Billions of Sounds – 3 guitars, 3 reverbs, 2 types of strings and so many combinations.
  • So light – Only a few megabytes. No samples.

Spicy Guitar is available as a freeware VST instrument for Windows PC.
