Synesthesia software synthesizer

May 2010 • gui, audio, synth, java, supercollider, osc

This program is a prototype of a novell graphical user interface for a software synthesizer, which was developed during my bachelor’s thesis1. It shall provide a new, playful approach to electronical music. The interface provides sequencing and synthesizing functionality and is supposed to be the foundation for a multitouch user-interface.

The frontend is written in Java using Java 3D. The synthesizer-backend uses SuperCollider to generate the sounds. Communication between front- and backend is done via OSC.

Note that you need a Java Virtual Machine and SuperCollider installed on your system.
