MusicDevelopments has announced an update to Syne, a powerful and flexible modular additive synthesizer instrument for Windows and macOS.

Version 1.2 brings a new FM module and some bug fixes.

Syne is a new, fully modular additive synthesizer capable of rendering more than 20000 partials on a recent CPU (=powerful) while having full control over each partial (=flexible). This allows making complex sounds that are not possible with other types of synthesis.

Changes in Syne v1.2

  • FM Module added.
  • Offline rendering works well.
  • Fix ‘custom’ envelope in ‘time’ mode.
  • Fixed: envelope parameters were not recalculated when a note was re-triggered before the previous note has ended.
  • Fixed noisy audio when using ‘Detune’ after ‘Duplicate Partials’.
  • User guide updated.

Syne is available in VST/VST3 and AU plugin formats and as standalone software, priced $89 USD.
