I am Paul, the author of the software synthesizer
I made a pre-release version. Please get it from
2.0.0_pre1 (17 Iul 2004)
- Added a new powerful synth engine which is
called PADsynth, you can
make very beautifull pads and even some strange sounds
- Now is used the XML format for all
zynaddsubfx parameters(.XMZ for
master parameters, .XIZ for instrument parameters and
.XSZ for scale
parameters).You can import older parameters. All
parameters files are
compressed with gzip algorithm.
- Some parameters has changed and you might
ecounter different sounds
that you saved in the older versions of zynaddsubfx
- The instrument banks are no longer single
files, but directories that
contains instrument .XIZ files (you can organize them
even with a file
manager). Also, you can use more than 1 banks easily.
- Added a new effect called DynamicFilter that
allows you to do
WahWah,AutoWah, VocalMorpher and other effects
- Started to write a small sequencer that
allows to load and play a
midi file from zynaddsubfx (unfinished)

Please look at the
sourceforge project page to get more information (

program with "-l"
command-line parameter and you can run zynaddsubfx w/o
user interface with "-U"

- The instruments can contain comments and
copyright information in
order to encourage sharing of them

write zynaddsubfx), most

The documentation for this version is not written.

until I'll write it.
