Inspired by an Eurorack filter modul (G-Storm Gyrinx), which based on the Synton Syrinx, an old, but tricky synthesizer.
Use the fxb/fxp preset saving system of your DAW/Host, the txt-based one on the GUI prone to save some seq note incorrectly!
Created 40 presets in Savihost (optimized to the middle-C note and close to it, but you can transpose them with the OCT V12), some of them enjoyable, some just function test or demo, so feel free to modify them, create your own sounds/rhythms and save to the fxb bank. You can save more banks with different names, if need more patch slots.

(the bad news for Win XP users: I started it in newer FS Alphas, so maybe will not run on your system – but worth a try)
Click on the HELP button in System to read more about the features and handling, I tried to collect useful info in it.
The Syrinx was only an inspiration for me, but created by my ideas.
If you want a more authentic Syrinx inspired VST synths, try the great CyRinx I/II from Kevin Brown – I half-made my one, when recognized that Kevin has already made the 2 CyRinx…
Created a new multi-lane sequencer to it, the oscillators are wavetable based ones (came from my earlier 8&8 + created some analogish-looking tri-saw-square-pulse waves manually to it) and has more oscs than the original, there is a dedicated formant/vowel osc too, the delay has some new features (L-R ratio, cross mod), added my PseUn (pseudo-unison) to the effects, each module has Random-Reset, GUI resize, MIDI learn, Envelope Times knob (inspired by Dreadbox Typhon), DePitch to compensate the default 100% keytracking on the cutoff frequencies, morphable LFO waves,… but the heart of the synth is the filter, I think.
Surely far from the perfect, still has some issues what I plan to repair or improve, but enjoyed it a lot during the patch making and hope, you will too.
