Two thumbs up for writing such a broad software on C64 as early as 83/84 and then putting it all together for a release some 20 years later.

I wonder if Georg has tried to publish it back then. I can only imagine that it would probably be put into wide use, especially after that Synth Sample demo.

I wish that more people who have some software still hidden somewhere follow Georg's example and release them. Imagine how many music and graphic editors, development systems would surface then.

Awesome! Gotta check this. I used to listen to the Synth Sample-tracks for hours back then, now I get the chance to see how they were actually created.

Hi all... due to popular demand for documentation I just spent most of the night reformatting the Synth help file into a .txt file. It's now added to the release (same zip file name, just re-download).

I wrote a complete Synth manual years ago but all that's left is a crusty line printer output, can't find the disk for it. If I ever do I'll post it.

I managed to load a tune, and do COMPILE, then PLAY. but i cant find any instrument editor, or note-sequencer. Am I just dumb ? it would rock with a real manual.txt you can have open on pc while working in the editor.

@georgie: Fascinating! The Synth Sample demo meant a lot to me as a 5 year old kid back then. ;D

Geez, you guys are picky :)
Synth was written starting in 1983 and was used to create the Synth Sample demo. The demo got distributed and morphed into other forms by various people, but Synth itself was never released (ok an early version got leaked accidentally way back when but I don't think it's around now). So this is the first real release with some tweaks and bug fixes too minor to justify updating the copyright year (also the intro screen is old). I've been out of the C64 scene for years so please be kind... after Synth I wrote a MIDI version for C64 then got into bands and producing music using Logic, Cubase & modern virtual synths. I'll be telling the long version of the story at World of Commodore on Dec 1.

Thanks for the screendump fix,

P.S. The PAL comment is probably not serious but in case anyone is wondering Synth can auto sense PAL/NTSC and correct note frequencies & timing. Finished music as in Synth Sample is locked in though, so in the release you'll find both PAL and NTSC versions of a slightly updated Synth Sample.

Anyone interested in doing a PAL-fix? ;-)

Screwing up a screendump (yes, the name is in this case even more true than ever) like this, is just a matter of a bad palette conversion.

How on earth did you manage to mess up the screendump so badly? Honestly, I'd be interested in your "technique"! ;-)

Good idea I've got entry for next year's Forever 9 gfx compo on monday. Maybe I should add it to the unreleased releases.
