What Is SynthMaker?
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.

New release 0.9.5i 20 - Jan - 06
The main part of this release is a massive reduction in the size of exported VSTs. Most VSTs will see a 3-4 fold reduction in size. The SynthMaker example synth has gone from 3.1 Mb to 785K. In addition we're now encrypting the schematic data so that your code is protected.

There are more memory reductions as well. In particular, if you don't use the Sawtooth or Triangle oscillators (or the multi osc module) then you should see about a 4 Mb reduction in memory use as the memory for the wave tables is now only allocated when needed.

Ints will work in streams again and Booleans will also now work, both are converted to floats automatically.


* Reduced the exported VST dll size dramatically.
* Encryption of schematic data in exported VSTs.
* Changing the options now saves immediately so that in the event of a crash they will be restored.
* Wave table memory is now only allocated when it is needed.
* More memory usage reductions.
* Reduced memory usage of some key components.
* Module bitmaps are now more efficiently in exported VSTs.
* Removed the trigger blocking in data components so that multiple triggers can be received.
* Syncing and undoing changes to properties was causing a crash.
* Fixed a crash situation that can occur with some ASIO drivers.
* Int Loop component now has protection for self feedback.
* Control points are no longer loaded into memory for links in exported VSTs.
* Moving links with control points as part of a multiple selection was scaling wrongly.
* VST plugin info type not having effect.
* Exported VSTs were crashing in Wavelab and Audition.
* Ints can be connected directly to streams again, Booleans will also now work as well.
* The Chorus module was not appearing in the top left of a front panel.
* Group adornment border was not drawing on top of the other elements.
* On the VST Plugin Info component the Type input was having no effect.
