Dexed

Dexed

Dexed is a plugin synth that is closely modeled on the Yamaha DX7. The goal of this synth is to be a tool/companion for the original DX7. 

Creating Modular Synths using Ingen and ams-lv2

Ingen is a modular synth that runs under JACK. It uses LADSPA and LV2 plugins for its processing. It can be used to create modular synths by using synth plugin modules.
 

ams-lv2

ams-lv2

ams.lv2 is a set of LV2 plugin ports of the internal modules found in Alsa Modular Synth.

These plugins are used to create modular synthesizers and, amongst others, contains:

Supercollider

Supercollider

SuperCollider is an environment and programming language for real-time audio synthesis and algorithmic composition.

AMSynth

AMSynth

AMSynth is an open source realtime software synthesizer for Linux. Its operation is similar to analog Moog Minimoog and Roland Juno-60, which are considered classic synthesizers from the 1970s. It is available in various formats, including LV2 and DSSI plugins as well as JACK/ALSA standalone clients.

Pure Data

Pure Data

Pure Data (aka Pd) is an open source visual programming language. Pd enables musicians, visual artists, performers, researchers, and developers to create software graphically, without writing lines of code.

Pd is a so-called data flow programming language, where software called patches are developed graphically. Algorithmic functions are represented by objects, placed on a screen called canvas. Objects are connected together with cords, and data flows from one object to another through this cords.

Fluidsynth

Fluidsynth

FluidSynth is a real-time software synthesizer based on the SoundFont 2 specifications.

FluidSynth itself does not have a graphical user interface (GUI), however, there are frontends that exist for it, eg:

Since version 5.4, Ardour has a built in plugin called 'a-Fluid Synth' which uses FluidSynth as it's backend.

Whysynth

Whysynth

Whysynth is a DSSI Softsynth Plugin.

Features include -

  • 4 oscillators, 2 filters, 3 LFOs, and 5 envelope generators per voice.
  • 10 oscillator modes: minBLEP, wavecycle, asynchronous granular, three FM modes, waveshaper, noise, PADsynth, and phase distortion.
  • 6 filter modes.
  • Flexible modulation and mixdown options, plus effects.

Tal NoiseMaker

Tal NoiseMaker

Tal NoiseMaker is a very flexible, and popular, softsynth.

The Linux port of Tal NoiseMaker is part of the Distrho ports, , maintained by falkTX.

Alsa Modular Synth

Alsa Modular Synth

AlsaModularSynth (AMS) is a realtime modular synthesizer and effect processor.
