Smode Synth

Smode Synth is a real-time 2D/3D generative content and multi-layer compositing application. It can be thought as a real-time video synthesizer relying on the traditional tools of CG artists: layers, modifiers and masks.

Smode Synth can work with audio and video inputs, control inputs (midi keyboards and control surfaces, OSC, audio) and it’s visual output is refreshed in real-time either on an external display or through SPOUT.

The essence of Smode Synth is to bring the fluidity and instantaneity of an audio creation software to the generation of animated images. Through its unique feature set, Smode Synth appears to be an extremely creative tool for generative VJing, interactive installations, real-time video effects, generative content creation, and much more! To unlock all these new creative possibilities for non-commercial projects, we decided to release Smode Synth, a free and fully usable version of Smode.
