“It’s intuitively laid out and fun to play around with”
How does Fluoresynth work?
Fluoresynth (sounds like “fluorescent”) generates a fundamental tone and 12 overtones. The relationship between the fundamental and its overtones determines the sound’s brightness and warmth.
Mellow or Bright Timbre
Fluoresynth sounds mellower when the overtones are much quieter than the fundamental tone.
Turning up the overtones’ amplitude brightens Fluoresynth’s timbre.
The Timbre slider controls the overtones’ amplitude.
Warm or Metallic Waveform
The waveform shape determines the distance between each overtone. You can control the waveform shape with the Waveform slider.
Dense overtones produce warmer sounds.
Spaced overtones sound metallic.
“Even if you’re already familiar with synthesizer terminology and architecture, Fluoresynth is a great addition to the toolbox. It is simple and quick to program and almost everything you’d want to tweak is available on one screen.”
Make Harmonic or Inharmonic Sounds
Fluoresynth can make both harmonic and inharmonic sounds. This feature sets Fluoresynth apart from other synthesizers only capable of harmonic sounds, like subtractive synthesizers.
Setting the Waveform control to a whole number results in a harmonic sound. The frequencies of the overtones become integer multiples of the fundamental tone’s frequency.
Setting the Waveform control to a fractional number results in an inharmonic sound. The frequencies of the overtones depart from integer multiples of the fundamental frequency.
Inharmonic sounds are useful for creating unpitched tones, like in drums, percussion, or sound effects.
Two envelopes control the Volume and Timbre amounts over the lifetime of each note.
Five low-frequency oscillators control periodic Volume, Timbre, and Waveform changes, plus Vibrato and Stereo Panorama effects. You can synchronize all five low-frequency oscillators to the tempo of your song.
All controls can be mapped to MIDI CC knobs or DAW automation clips for ultimate customization.
