Sodasynth Runs Native In Chrome Browser

Latency be gone - tighter than usual      20/09/11

Sodasynth Runs Native In Chrome Browser

Sodasynth is a simple synth and looper that runs in the browser. So what? You might say, well this is different. Its written in C++ and runs natively inside Google's Chrome Browser as a plug-in. This means that the latency is low and the result is very responsive.

Okay, so its not the most fully featured synth workstation and is triggered by QWERTY keys, but whats going on under the hood is the key part.

I'm guessing that this simple interface could be enhanced into something more complex with a bit of work and design, perhaps heralding a new breed of browser apps that are not Flash based and have a deal of efficiency and more usable, real-time usage.

Yeah, its also a bit of PR for Oscillicious' plugs - namely the SodaSynth VST - a simple synth designed to create sounds that just fit into a track. It uses Spectral Morphing to create its sounds in conjunction with regular subtractive synth features - and its only $23 (Mac/PC) 

To run SodaSynth for Chrome - you need:

SodaSynth is a synthesizer and live looper that allows you to jam and quickly make cool recordings.  

Google's Chrome browser  v14
Mac 10.6.8 + Linux Chrome v15

* Live looper for creating up loops by overdubbing, with built-in beat
* The lowest latency keyboard on the web!
* Unique spectral morphing algorithm to evolve sounds
* 5 classic waveforms, up to 32 oscillators per note
* Includes 24 built-in synth presets
* ADSR envelope
* Written in high-performance C++ and uses Native Client (NaCl) to do real on-the-fly synthesis
