Buzz is the first ever "easy to use" free modular software based synthesizer. What this means is that the entire system is based on objects, which may be routed in a modular fashion, giving you the freedom to be as creative as you want. For example, if you wish to run 3 Physical Modelling synths and a Drum Machine through 2 seperate Stereo Delays, into a Mixer, through a Compressor and Parameteric EQ, and finally out to your speakers - no problem. Lay down your synths, connect the wires and you're done. Check out the screenshots below for examples!
A Machine is an object in Buzz which either creates or modifies sound. A Machine is the equivalent of a single piece of gear in a traditional music studio. It may be a synthesizer, a sampler, a dsp effect, a mixing board, or any other piece of gear that exists in a studio. Every piece has the same parameters and functions you would expect to find in the studio you know and love. Whats better is that all existing machines are free. Because creating your own machines is quite simple (someone with little knowledge of C++ should find his way in the SDK), you'll also find machines in Buzz which aren't really common in studio's. This makes Buzz a very innovative software studio.
Imagine having a studio with over 300 pieces of gear. Now imagine fitting it on a laptop and taking it anywhere with you. It sounds like a dream to any Musician, but its completely possible with Buzz. An install size of 8 megs (Stealth Pack, doesn't include all the machines), with a memory requirement of 32 megs. Buzz fits easily onto most decent laptops.
