AN EASY WAY TO LEARN SYNTHEDIT
It took me two weeks of a few hours a day to make my first two VST synths with SynthEdit. They’re not be best synths ever, but not the worst, and they’re fun. Plus they have some cool sounds.
I’ve posted the SynthEdit project file for my VST mono synth, LuckyWorm above. Download it, unzip it, open it in SynthEdit.
You are free to download it, examine it, output it and expand on it. Don’t just slap a new name and logo on it, but if you do make substantial contributions to it, feel free to use it for the basis of your first synth, if you credit me in your ReadMe file and anywhere you post list it for download online. And it would also be cool if you use the same license I used, the BipCot NoGov License.
You set the ID when you output VST from SynthEdit.
Notice I’ve set the name to “NotLuckyWorm” and put in a bunk ID of “zzzz.” DO make sure you change the VST ID when you output it. Two VSTs having the same ID can cause conflicts in some DAW. I think Steinberg might not have thought it through how popular VSTs would be when they made the IDs only 4 characters long.
