Some software synths are really amazing. Anyway, to be honest: i prefer hardware instruments.Continue reading Zynthian @ Ivan Monterosso
A few months ago, we started the integration of a new engine in zynthian. This time it was something special as it was the first zynthian engine integrated by somebody else (Mr. Holger Wirtz, aka @C0d3man) and it wasn’t a free software engine, but a commercial product, with a privative license. Somebody could think that this is not well aligned with the spirit of zynthian project, so … why to do it?
Great news, @zynthianers!
I’ve been working in a new engine that allows to launch LV2-plugins as standalone layers. For doing that, i’ve used (and extended!) Jalv, from David Robillard, one of the creators of LV2 plugin specification. In his words:
Summer is a relaxed period and i love to dedicate some time to mind-expanding tasks. Integrating Aeolus, a “pipe organ emulator that should be good enough to make an organist enjoy playing it”, has been a very pleasant task and have given to me the oportunity of learning a little bit about these amazing machines that Pipe Organs are and its history. And of course, it’s a very good add for Zynthian 😉
Finally, the long-time-awaited Pure Data zynthian’s engine is here!

Greetings from the sunny BCN, where today the rain fall over and tomorrow the air will smell clean and healthy 🙂
It’s been a hard month preparing the new SD image, but finally it’s here. Its name is Gorgona!
If you already have a Zynthian Box, i’m pretty sure you would like to try Gorgona right now. You can choose between two different versions, compiled for RBPi3 and RBPi2:
IMPORTANT: Comments are closed in this post, please, use the forum.
Zynthian is an Open Synth Platform based in Raspberry Pi, some Open Software Synthesizers and more.
I’m trying to integrate all the parts in a realiable case with a nice and ergonomic User Interface, so everybody can enjoy this wonderful synthesizers in any place without having to install or configure anything.
When it’s finished, i would like to make it available for everybody, as a toolkit or as a finished product, so you can use it for Live Playing, Music Production or any kind of experimentation.
Of course, all the specifications will be freely available, so you can build your own device if you prefer 😉
