PadSynth is a sample generator that uses the algorithm designed by Nasca Octavian Paul. The idea behind this synth is that you describe the frequency spectrum of a sound, by assigning values to its harmonics. The sound is then generated from this spectrum, but with a twist: a "spread" is applied to the harmonics, so that the sound feels more "natural", less exact and digital.

Usage: right-click on an empty instrument slot and choose "PadSynth" in the contextual menu to create a new PadSynth instrument. Edit the parameters, and click on "Generate Samples" to create the wavetables. Repeat the process until you find the sound you want. You can close and reopen the synth interface without losing any parameters. You can also open PadSynth over an existing instrument to layer multiple types of sounds.
