  • M4L Tide Synthesizer

    M4L Tide is a 8 voice synthesizer with some special features.


    WHITEBOX Pixiphone, an ambient instrument that models a child's toy then enlarges it with spectral delay, reverb, brightness, hit strength, attack and decay.

  • osynth for the microTone

    osynth is a free microtonal polyphonic synthesizer with various oscillator types and random-modulation sources.

  • All in one, is a project for investigating how powerfully can be M4L with implementation of all multiple possibilities.

  • Fluxus Vox


    An ambient synth with 8 pad tones plus Reverb, Attack, Release, Cutoff and Spectral Delay.   A surprisingly deep variation of sounds available with a few controls. Now part of $4 Max Pack.


    WHITEBOX DIALSYNTH is a superfast one-dial call-up of 24 presets ranging from rich pads to quirky leads.   No dials to tweak.


    Designed for the musician who is either in a hurry, bored with tweaking parameters and/or extremely lazy. It takes the decision-making out of sound selection.

  • Operations

    Operations is a computer generated audiovisual solo performance piece. The starting point for this piece is the programming of traditional drum machine grid patterns, a type of musical score.

  • The idea behind this project was to create a simple kick drum synthesizer.

  • Nord Lead Patch Viewer

  • CRONE: Polyphonic textural comb drone synth

    CRONE is a comb-filter-based polyphonic drone synthesizer.  It uses pulse waves and noise to excite comb filters; stereo lowpass filters shape and pan the sound. CRONE is great for pad sounds and can even do an acceptable clav, but it really excels at creating intricate rhythmic textures via pulse waves.  It's great for making textures like "a cloud of mandolins" or "a roomful of tambours". There's lots of interesting features, such as local vs.

  • Sub-Lime Subsynth

  • SmileForLive is a small device that makes tonal glitchy music out of know parameters.

  • liquid rutt-etra

    An experiment using Rutt-Etra scan in Jitter on a liquid synth patch.

  • Peydgentron’s “Obvi EP”

    Pedrodomus (NYC) and Naetron (ATX) have teamed up under court orders to release a truly metal, glitched-out, rock-solid EP.

  • Miniak Patch Editor

    Miniak Patch Editor is an application for creating and managing synthesis patches for the Akai Miniak (and Alesis Micron) synthesiser.

  • Phisynth

    This instrument was created as part of our latest interactive dance spectacle “Absorbe-moi” The starting idea was to create an instrument dealing with sound synthesis and reacting directly with the movement of the 2 dancers. Their movement is tracked live and analyzed by another computer, collecting the main characteristics of it (X position, Y position, Height, Width, X gravity, Y gravity, speed and luminosity). This continuous flux of data is smoothed, then transmitted as normalized data into the synth trough 8 channels, used to modulate the main parameter of the sound, like the oscillators frequency, the filters cutoff frequency, their resonance, etc..., or used to control events like the retriggering of envelopes, zeroing the oscillator phase, modifying their wave shape, controlling the rate of the sequencers, or the spatial position of the sound sources in the set (a quadriphonic system is used here).

  • TapNTune

    TapNTune brings to your desktop something that was until now only available in hardware form: namely, a combination tuner and metronome that runs from a single window.

  • Scanned Synthesizer

    A max for live instrument utilizing a physical mass-spring model to create a dynamic wavetable.

    It features: - four oscillators that can be used in parallel or according to note stack order - independent settings of each spring with functional A to B interpolation - generative functional hammer shapes that can be plugged or bowed - spring connections between oscillators that can simulate sympathetic strings - sophisticated and intuitive user interface - and more --- A free version (not supporting saving) is available on maxforlive.com.

  • Image Tracking Synthesizer

  • Kapling

    Kapling is a simple little standalone physical modeling synthesizer application for Mac OS X built with Max/MSP 5.

  • Le Synthé V5
