Synthesiser

I'm interested in synthesis and had a go at writing a synthesiser in C++ recently. It's based on 2,400 triangle-wave oscillators which move randomly between notes in various chords. It sounds pretty creepy. I might be able to use it in some kind of weird game soundtrack :lol:

Thats really cool. I wish I had the C++ know-how to do something like that. Would be good for creepy game music. I really liked it.

Sounds like the lady playing the organ at church, after a hard night of partying.

The changes in chords are pretty cool :D Did I get it right, there is a lot of oscillators, and they "slide" into the tune? Is that noise between the chords because the oscillators are in middle of "shifts" and their psoitions are more or less random?

That's right, you've pretty much figured it out. There's the basic chord sequence, then there's a thousand or so oscillators which pick a random note in the next chord, and slide towards it. They start at random frequencies at the beginning (and are random halfway between chords), which makes a band of noise. I think I'm going to try and make a version that can be controlled by a MIDI keyboard, because right now, you have to enter a table of frequencies which is a pain in the ass.

Thanks for feedback everyone :)
