Note: Sadly Spiral Modular is not under active development and hasn't been for some time.
I'm busy on other projects now, and ssm lives on as the core of
Om synth has a similar methodology to
ssm, but has a more modern design and is under active development.
SpiralSynth Modular is an object orientated music studio with an emphasis on live use.You can use it in a fairly straight forward way to make tracks with, or get very experimental. Audio or control data can be freely passed between the plugins. Data can also be fed back on itself for chaotic effects.
SSM supports LADSPA plugins, which you can use in the same way as any of the native plugins. The JACK audio server is also supported.
SSM is a
collaborative open source project, see the AUTHORS file for an extensive
list of contributors.
