SynthMaker is a graphical programming environment for creating VST instruments and effects plug-ins.

You can also use SynthMaker to learn about and experiment with digital signal processing so it’s a great educational tool as well.

The latest new release is now available. This is the first release to include new high-level modules. There’s also a new example schematic to show how these can be used.

Version 0.9.5
New Features

  • Over 25 new components.
  • Sound buffers – more components for handling wave files.
  • Module Properties – allows modules to provide options for style and operation without having to go inside and edit the structure.
  • Wireless links – no need to waterfall links and connectors down through the module hierarchy.
  • Stream Connectors – almost all sound components have stream connectors so they can now be used in poly and mono sections.
  • Automatic Front Panels – give a module a front panel in one click without the need to use an MGUI.
  • Sample precise timing of MIDI for exported VSTs.
  • Much reduced schematic file size.
