Tsugi has introduced GameSynth 2022, a major update to their Windows procedural sound design tool for games and animation.
GameSynth offers many specialized synthesizers for generating sound effects: impacts, whooshes, footsteps, engines, particle-based sounds, environmental sounds, voice effects and more. It also provides a patching environment to build sound effects synthesizers by connecting 130+ modules together.
They say that GameSynth 2022 has been leveled up to be bigger, faster & smarter. Here’s what’s new:
- 1000+ sound models of all types and styles in the repository.
- 15 new modules in the patching environment: Horn, Parametric, Stutter, Wavefolder, Drifter etc…

- Import of SVG drawings and new scripting functions in the Sketch Pad.
- New audio exporters (GameMaker Studio, Audacity).
- New animation curve importers (GameMaker Studio, Live2D).
- New module selector to quickly add modules by type, name, status etc…
- Partial playback to instantly check audio signals going through wires.
- New wire context menu to speed up patching.
- Snap wiring and automatic modules reconnection.
- Automatic .wav rendering for different meta-parameter values.
- Updated automatic export to game middleware (Wwise, FMOD…)
- AI-powered perceptual map to find similar sound models.
- Audio analysis to find sound models close to a wave file.
