amsynth is an easy-to-use software synth with a classic subtractive synthesizer topology.

  • Dual oscillators (sine / saw / square / noise) with hard sync
  • 12/24 dB/oct resonant filter (low-pass / high-pass / band-pass / notch)
  • Mono / poly / legato keyboard modes
  • Dual ADSR envelope generators (filter & amplitude)
  • LFO which can modulate the oscillators, filter, and amplitude
  • Distortion and reverb
