Amsynth, Two Oscillator Software Synthesizer.

amsynth_thumbamSynth is an open source realtime software synthesizer for Linux. Its operation is similar to analog Moog Minimoog and Roland Juno-60, which are considered classic synthesizers from the 1970s.

The two main oscillators support five cyclic waveforms and one noise source.[1] There is also an LFO for vibrato effects.

Project Description.

amsynth is a software synth that provides a classic subtractive synthesizer topology, with
    Dual oscillators with classic waveforms - sine / saw / square / noise
    24 dB/oct low-pass resonant filter
    Independent ADSR envelopes for filter & amplitude
    LFO which can module the oscillators, filter, and amplitude
    Distortion effect
Currently it runs as a stand-alone application on Linux, supporting OSS, ALSA and JACK for Audio / MIDI I/O.
Building from source.

In order to successfully compile amSynth you will need to make sure you have the following development packages installed:
    GTK-- version 1.2.9 is required for the GUI.
    Open Sound System (optional) for midi & audio.
    ALSA 0.9x (optional) for midi & audio.
    JACK (optional) for audio output.
    libsndfile (optional) for the .WAV file output ability.
Then unzip the archive containing the source code and compile it like this:

$ tar -xzvf amSynth-1.3.2.tar.gz
$ cd amSynth-1.3.2
$ ./configure
$ make
$ sudo make install

Compiling latest sources from Git:

$ git clone https://code.google.com/p/amsynth/
$ cd amsynth
$ ./autogen.sh
$ ./configure
$ make
$ sudo make install
