vintage synthesizer emulator

Bristol is a synthesizer emulator application. Bristol uses the sound card PCM generator and can be MIDI driven, furthermore it can be set to use the low latency scheduling feature of the kernel, reducing audio under runs. It can handle any number of simultaneous synthesizers (they all connect to the same engine). It supports splitting and layering the keyboard with multiple synthesizers on a single midi channel. Currently Bristol emulates the following keyboards: Moog Mini, Moog Voyager (Bristol "Explorer"), Sequential Circuits Prophet-5, Roland Juno-6, Yamaha DX-7, Hammond (single manual), Hammond B3 (dual manual).
Package version:0.60.10-3


bristol for Debian

The bristol command allows you to adapt the synthesizer either to the
ALSA or the OSS sound systems. In order to run the  synthesizer you 
need a MIDI device though. If you do not have a MIDI card you might
also use the virtual MIDI card supplied by the ALSA sound drivers.
The module is called snd-virmidi.

Bristol Emulations

has owned and used a selection but far from all of the originals. Some of them
were built just from descriptions of their operation, or from

  The size of the voice table is now set to 32 voices by default.
  This is not the max table size which continues to be 128 voices:
  the -voices option is a runtime parameter that can be used to increase
  the size of the table above the VOICECOUNT limit.
