If Puredata and Supercollider are two synths,
din is a synth of a 3rd kind.

It forgets history,
To not repeat it.

It doesnt hide analog music hardware,
In digital music software.

You had pulse, sine, triangle and sawtooth,
And went forth and made electronic music.

Now there is just the Bezier curve.
Go make your pulse, sine, triangle or sawtooths again.
Or this, this, this and this.

This is nothing new.
Some old men did it in the 60s!
Punched numbers into cards!

Now you edit waveforms in a GUI,
And watch the sound change before your very ears.

Has it got ADSR?

Infinite length delay lines.
With Bezier envelope for feedback and volume.

Bezier on Carrier and Modulator.
Eat that Chowning.

Notes! Notes! Notes!
Infinite microtones between two tones.

In Tcl.
ie LISP, with the (((()))) taken out.

Look under the hood.
Drive it.
Take it home.
