Analogue Synth Tool plug-in for Audacity

Post by Adam-V » Thu Apr 26, 2012 8:48 pm

This is a bit of software DIY in the form of a Nyquist plug-in for Audacity that can generate an assortment of synth waveforms which can be saved as audio files, imported into any DAW then played back through a DC coupled audio interface to control analogue synths.

The screen shot below shows two standard waveforms that were generated with the plug-in; the first being 1 measure of 120BPM quarter note clock pulses and the second a sine LFO spanning a full 120BPM measure.

The plug-in and documentation can be downloaded from Here

If you find any bugs, or have any issues, please let me know.

I developed this because I needed to synchronise some analogue gear to Logic/Digital Performer and neither I nor my collaborators have the dedicated hardware or software with which to do so. I'm sharing it here in the hope that others may find it useful. Use it your own peril, I make no guarantees and accept no responsibilities - it is free after all.

Cheers,
Adam-V

Thanks! This should be a good way to generate single cycle waveforms for the poly evolver and as sampler food as well.

You're welcome.

Please note that this will not create audio rate waveforms though. The upper limit on the tempo is 300 BPM which, for a single 16th note cycle, is 30Hz.
