Surge is a digital synth and makes no bones about it.
If you have used it in the past, it will be like welcoming an old friend back into your life. If you are new to Surge, welcome to the party. Come on in, the water is fine.
Surge is back and open source!
Thanks to the generosity of @Kurasu (owner of Vember Audio), Surge has been open sourced and lives on GitHub.


- Synthesis method: Subtractive hybrid
- Each patch contain two scenes which are separate instances of the entire synthesis engine (except effects) that can be used to create layered or split patches.
- Quick category-based patch browser
- Runs on a variety of operating systems, plugin formats, and architectures

- 1725 patches
- 523 wavetables

- 3 oscillators per scene.
- 8 versatile oscillator algorithms: Classic, Sine, Wavetable, Window, FM2, FM3, S&H Noise and Audio Input.
- Classic oscillator is a morphable pulse/saw/dual saw oscillator with a sub-oscillator and hard sync.
- FM2/FM3 oscillators consist of a carrier and 2 or 3 modulators and various options.
- Most algorithms (except FM2, FM3 and Audio input) offer up to 16-voice unison at the oscillator level.
- Oscillator FM and ring modulation between oscillators 1-2 and 2-3.
- Most oscillator algorithms (except FM2, FM3 and Sine) are strictly band-limited, yet still cover the entire audible spectrum, delivering a clear, punchy and clean sound.
- Noise generator with variable spectrum.

- Two filter units in 8 different configurations.
- Feedback loop available in 7 of those configurations.
- Available filter algorithms: Lowpass (12 and 24 dB/oct, each with 3 variations), Lowpass 24 dB/oct (3 variations), Ladder Lowpass (6-24 dB/oct), Highpass (12 and 24 dB/oct, each with 3 variations), Bandpass (12 and 24 dB/oct, each with 3 variations), Notch (12 and 24 dB/oct, each with 2 variations), Comb (4 variations), S&H.
- Filters can self-oscillate (with excitation) and respond amazingly fast to cutoff frequency changes.
- Waveshaper (5 shapes).

- 12 LFO units available, 6 are per voice and 6 are global for the whole scene.
- DAHDSR envelope generators on every LFO.
- 7 deformable LFO waveforms and step sequencer mode.
- Voice LFOs allow envelope retriggering when used as step sequencer.
- Extremely fast and flexible modulation routing. Almost every continuous parameter can be modulated!

- 8 effect units arranged as 2 inserts per scene, 2 sends and 2 master effects.
- 13 effect algorithms:
- EQ, Distortion, Conditioner (EQ, stereo image control and limiter), Frequency Shifter, Rotary Speaker, Ring Modulator, Vocoder, Chorus, Phaser, Flanger, Delay, Reverb 1, Reverb 2

Thanks, I really like the [free] uploads here, because they always remind me that there is a new version out, or sometimes I find new interesting stuff

an amazing synth- almost hard to believe it's free.
make music, not walls.

Curious, what other paid synths does this get close to in your opinion?
And I agree, it's amazing that it's free. Last years has been a blessing for synth fans, this and Vital (and a bunch of others that I forgot) are a great addition to your arsenal and you can create great music with them!

Changes in 1.8.1
1.8.1 is a point release to clean up a few bugs we found after 1.8.0 release, to add a few features we simply forgot to code, and to update and add content to the installer which people shared after the 1.8.0. release.

The changes are:

Bugfixes and Features
Handled UTF-16 paths for saving user settings, allowing users on Windows with UTF-16 usernames to update their defaults
Drag and drop of a .wav or .wt wavetable doesn’t reset oscillator type, if type is set to Window
The warning on Windows about uninstalled Lato font shows only once, not once every time the Surge GUI is opened
About screen actually mentions Surge Synth Team!
About screen on Windows shows “x86” instead of “Intel” for CPU
Modulation depth display and typein for tempo synced parameters is implemented now (as opposed to being just nonsense)
Subfolders in modulator presets are now listed first, before files
Dismissed the value display popup when toggling modulation assign mode on/off
Resolved Python with /usr/bin/env on Linux in the build phase
Fixed an occasional, but serious crash which would occur on slower machines when rapidly changing patches
Reordered and improved the MSEG segment menu
Drag and drop FX movement retains assigned modulation
Fixed a mis-drawn MSEG hover segment when scrolling horizontally
Added an explicit menu setting for touchscreen mode for Windows users (under User Settings->Mouse Behavior)
Avoided a floating point underflow which rendered MSEG S-curve deforms incorrectly when Deform was a very small value
Failure to load a .wav file will not rename the patch wavetable anymore
Fixed a typo which resulted in the Hard waveshaper sounding wrong in Rotary and Distortion effects
Added a bunch of modulator presets
High quality versions of all factory wavetables in Basic folder
Updated Jacky Ligon’s presets with new patches and CPU optimizations
Updated TMNG’s presets with new patches, CPU optimizations and cleaner wavetables
Added wavetables from TNMG
Added patches from Stefan Singer (previously known as Stefan Hållèn)
Updated a single patch from Luna

switching presets in logic 10.5.1 crashes logic

I bet the developer would appreciate that tidbit to correct it.

Alguien sabe si este sintetizador puede ser controlado con MIDI GUITAR 2 Jam Origin?......?

Love this synth !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Resident 24.05.2015 1 322
huge fan of Roger Linn and of course the surge synth. i think Olymoon is a fan too (if i recall). surge has been around for a long time and is very adaptable
guys, Roger is the same person who made the Linn drum, which as the story goes he got the idea travelling with Leon Russell. he also invented that Linnstrument that you see in the demo. thanks for bringing it here deuces. great piece of sound design history and still quite current

I can never stop praising this classic free synth. Love this new UI.
