Make better music faster
Musicians want to spend their time making music, not learning how to use a particular synth.
Fluoresynth allows you to play with a rich soundscape without needing a complicated interface. You’ll immediately start making music instead of figuring out controls.
Place your mouse over the sliders to see how each one changes Fluoresynth’s sound.
It’s easier than deciphering a wall of knobs.

Fluoresynth produces an audio signal composed of a fundamental tone and 12 overtones. It produces no noise and filters all aliased frequencies.
How does Fluoresynth work?
The Fluoresynth synthesizer uses the harmonic series to create pitched musical tones. This series also determines the sounds of string, brass, and woodwind instruments.
Unlike traditional instruments, you can customize Fluoresynth’s harmonics as you play it.
Fluoresynth’s harmonic series consists of 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 frequency.
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, like bells.
Changing the timbre or waveform over time can make the sound more interesting. Fluoresynth has several ways of making notes more dynamic.
Two envelopes control the Volume and Timbre amounts over the lifetime of each note.
Four low-frequency oscillators control periodic Volume and Timbre changes, plus Vibrato and Stereo Panorama effects. You can synchronize all four low-frequency oscillators to the tempo of your song.
