The tool is not a synthesizer - it is a Synth-A-Modeler! This paper introduces the Synth-A-Modeler compiler, which enables artists to synthesize binary DSP modules according to mechanical analog model specifications. This open-source tool promotes modular design and ease of use. Leveraging the Faust DSP programming environment, an output Pd, Max/MSP, SuperCollider, VST, LADSPA, or other external module is created, allowing the artist to "hear" the sound of the physical model in real time using an audio host application.
