Digidesign SoftSynth?
« on: November 26, 2014, 08:08:24 PM »
anybody seen a copy of this additive synth from same era as turbosynth?

i have just ordered sound accelerator II card for nubus mac IIsi and seems like it would be a pretty rad addition to the setup.

i was just reading about this just now
Digidesign SoftSynth
yes its a program from 1986/1987 for ATARI ST
early program developed by digidesign to turn a sampler into a synthesizer..
basically a SynthEngine for a sampler.. any sampler? i think any early 80s sampler..

Supporting the Emax, Roland S10, and Akai X7000 and S700 samplers (in addition to the already-supported Prophet 2000/2002, Mirage, Emulator II, Korg DSS1, and Akai S612/S900), and you have a nice little addition to an existing package.

I think I've got a few versions of it around here. IIRC SoftSynth and PowerSynth are versions of the same thing. The latter probably the PPC version, since that was a popular naming convention in the mid 90s. It's a non-realtime modular for old systems. My IIc/SampleCell setup got mothballed shortly after I set it up due to housing instability.
