Rumblence: Zoyd



The synth that started it all! When Apple introduced Audio Units back in 2002, the first thing I realised was that nobody had a decent GUI construction kit for plug-ins. While the early adopters kept discussing the general feature set of Audio Units, I went straight for creating a quick and easy GUI toolkit – which I called CAUGui. Released later as open source, CAUGui was abandoned when better stuff came onto the scene.

Nevertheless, CAUGui allowed me to create the very first Audio Unit with a fancy custom user interface. It was called Rumblence:pure, a distortion plugin that was buggy as hell! I kept working on it, and out came Zoyd, one of the very first synthesizer plugins for Audio Units on MacOS X. This was still before I became a serious developer, and Zoyd never really left beta stage. However, some people still use it now and again...
