About & Samples

What is this project all about? Shortly: digital audio generation.
Set some parameters, press play button and voila!
You should hear the generated sound through your speakers.

Application can be used for creating:

  • instrumental samples
  • ambient sounds
  • special effects
  • psycho-acoustic experiments

Falasol Timbre

Project is a free sound synthesizer designed for research and entertainment.
It’s based on concepts of additive synthesis and spectral reverse-engineering
(design the sound based on expected spectral outcome).
Please see application help file for more technical details.

The application is free to use, copy, share and to play with.
Please mention the Falasol.net web address when using sounds created with the application.

I hope you enjoy the time spent with the application and perhaps get inspired for new ideas.

I’m just a regular, normal person (unfortunately all documents proving that were lost).
During daytime I’m working for an IT corporation.
When the moon shines I’m conducting my sonic research.
The ultimate goal is to summon Ctulhu, but being able to control human mind also will do.
