Two additive synths with a lot of deformation options for the waveforms, the full one is pretty crazy on the CPU. Both are work in progress, I just wanted to share since these can already create a lot of cool sounds:

I created these to use with my microtonal experiments where I want to create non-standard inharmonic timbres (=retune the partials by hand)

It's really a lot work in progress, there's a lot of things that could be made probably to give it a more interesting sound, especially that partial morphing array thing does not sound very interesting considering the huge CPU load all those wires create. To make the sound more natural, the partials should have individual speed controls for the amplitude modulation. I think the 16 partials version could be modified like this (altough then without the arrays), and also the Chebysev shaper would probably sound more useful on every even partial, and probably quantised to just integer values. For the 16 partials version it would also make sense to give individual ADSR option for each partial, altough for this some kind of array system would be best because otherwise editing would be painful. Etc, etc, feel free to modify and enhance this :)
