Vember Audio releases Surge as open-source on GitHub

1st October 2018

Vember Audio has announced that the software synthesizer Surge is now released as open-source (GPL license) on GitHub.

Surge was previously sold as a commercial product by Vember Audio.

Claes Johanson says.

"As I'm too busy with other projects and no longer want to put the effort into maintaining it myself across multiple platforms I have decided to give it new life as an open-source project."

"It was originally released in 2005, and was one of my first bigger projects. The code could be cleaner, and at parts better explained but its reliable and sounds great. And beware, there might still be a few comments in Swedish."

The codebase was migrated from before an unfinished 1.6 release which improves on the last released 1.5.3 in a number of ways:

It currently only builds on Windows, but getting it to build on macOS again & Linux should be doable with moderate effort.
