Modeling a VST Synthesizer

Christos Karavasileiadis & Stephan O'Bryan

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


Our main purpose of this project is to experiment and program a VST synthesizer plug-in which can be used to model and create sounds through a host application in a computer. In this report, we firstly present the history of the synthesizers. Secondly, we explain and discuss the requirements and “must-know” parts of a typical synthesizer. We then compare the analogue synthesis and digital synthesis and explain the differences between them. After that, the two leading parts of a VST synthesizer; ‘MIDI’ (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) and ‘VST’ (Virtual Studio Technology) are analyzed to certain extend. As the final part, we spell out the design/ implementation of our VST synthesizer plug-in and the explanation of our source codes will also be seen.
