    Anyone ever done this?

    I designed a guitar pluck synth for my dissertation which was built using subtractive synthesis - in the same way as one would build a modular synthesizer, but it was all in the computer - I can't remember the program I used as it was over a year ago now - but it was an a maths engineering type of program.

    Has anyone else built a synth before using transfer functions and control loops? And did you manage to use it to make music?

    I came up with a method of randomly generating minimalist music for a GCSE project. It wasn't particularly good though.

    I wrote a granular synth in csound, and several interactive arts projects.
