The Mx44 is a polyphonic multichannel midi realtime software
synthesizer. It is written in C and hand optimized for the (Intel) MMX
instruction set. It runs under Linux, using any kernel modified for
realtime performance.
The core algorithm is a  4 x 4 crossmodulating matrix (phase and
amplitude) with individual envelopes for each oscillator. Oscillators
have individual frequency intonation, can emphasize any of the eight
first harmonics and even do some internal crossmodulation. Envelopes
can be switched between VCA and VCF modes (ehrm, actually wave-shaping,
but it will quack like a duck by any other name.) The sustainloop of
the envelope can be brought into oscillation in the audible spectre as
well as provide slow LFO sweeps. There is also a minor load of key and
velocity related modifications for wowie zowie realtime ecstacy
