Features:

  • Realtime, Polyphonic, Multi-timbral synthesizer.
  • Microtonal capabilities with any scale, any number of notes per octave (up to 127) and keymapping.
  • 3 synthesizer engines:
    1. ADsynth" or "ADnote" is a complex engine which makes sounds by adding a number of voices. Each one has filters, envelopes, LFOs, morphing, modulation (Ring Modulation, Phase Modulation, the modulators can have any shape), resonance, etc. Each voice includes a very powerful waveform generator with up to 128 sine/nonsine harmonics. This engine includes antialiasing.
    2. "SUBsynth" or "SUBnote" is a simpler engine which allows you to make sounds by subtraction of harmonics of sounds from white noise.
    3. "PADsynth" or "PADnote") makes beautiful pads and other instruments.
  • Instruments can be organized in kits, which allows you to make drum kits or layered (mixed) instruments; this makes it possible to use more than one instrument for a single part. It is possible to choose what items from the kit should be processed by the Part's effects.
  • Effects: Reverb, Echo, Chorus/Flange, Phaser, AlienWah (a kind of vocal morpher), Distortion (Waveshaping), EQ, DynamicFilter.
  • The effects can behave as System Effects or as Insert Effects; this allows you to use many effects at the same time. You can put any insert effect on any part (or more insert effects to same parts, if you like) or you can put the insert effect to Master output. Also, you can have instrument's effect (that is saved with the instrument).
  • Filters up to 60dB/octave (or more); filters can be analogue (LPF,HPF, BPF,etc.), formant (advanced formant filters) and state variable (SVF).
  • Envelopes can have ADSR (or ASR, etc.) modes or can be free modes (with any shape).
  • Many settings have a "randomness" option; this produces a very pleasant effect (like analogue synths or natural instruments that can't produces exactly same sound twice).
  • Intuitive and easy to use User Interface.
  • MIDI support (supports many controllers) and (if you want) JACK support.
  • Virtual Keyboard.
  • It is free, licensed under version 2 of the GNU General Public License.

I noticed that after clicking an instrument in any bank, it does not highlight well (using Linux) -- perhaps if I could use a different skin/theme this would be solved, but ZASF does not seem to pick up on my GTK, QT, or OpenBox themes. Is there any way to tweak the appearance?

You'd better ask it in the forum dedicated to ZynAddSubFX here:

http://www.kvraudio.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=47

It is the forum where discuss all the ZynAddSubFX users and with Paul Nasca himself... so there is no better place to ask such a question.
