You will have to obtain the ASIO SDK yourself through Steinerg, it is NOT included. The source contains some hints about how to do this using Visual Studio 2013 Express. I had to make some minor changes to the configuration in order to get the code to compile under VS2017. Also see http://www.portaudio.com.
  • The included FFTW material (used for Fourier transforms in some modules) is © Copyright 2003, 2007-11 Matteo Frigo, © Copyright 2003, 2007-11 Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It was modified to be used in Wren.
  • The Talkie related code and the words.lpc file are © Copyright 2011 Peter Knight This code is released under GPLv2 license, and it was modified to be used in Wren.
  • The included GVerb code came from github, the copyright message reads : © Copyright 1999 Juhana Sadeharju, published under a GNU General public license. I translated the C code to Pascal.

  • The frequency shifter was copied from the Ladspa bode shifter that I found at github.
  • ModTerragen uses some code that I found at mobeard.org.
  • For some of the envelope generators I found inspiration at musicfsp.org.

  • Some ideas that are in the Euclidean modules came from the electro-music.com forum and pdpatchrepo.info.
  • The SVF module (not the Hrast SVF but the plain SVF) used some ideas found at musicdsp.org and in the following pdf file: www.music.mcgill.ca/~ich/classes/FiltersChap2.pdf.
  • The Pink Filter found it's origin at musicdsp.org.
  • The Lorenz and Rössler attractor modules are based on code made by Thaddy de Koning (c) 2005) / [[http://www.tinygod.com | Russell Borogove © 2004).

  • Some wave wrapper modes were based on code and ideas found at muffwiggler.com.
  • The 'Poetry' generator was modeled after an idea by Johnathan Mackenzie from his Phd thesis 'Using Strange Attractors To Model Sound'.

  • Some of the speech synth ideas and some of it's code came from the Tiny Speech Synth by 'stan 1901'.
  • The BSpline code used in the DataMaker component was written by M. v. Engeland, I made a couple of minor changes only to make it work in Delphi XE5/XE10. Please see the source code (BSplines.pas in the knobs2013 directory) for details.
  • For the speech stuff I have used C++ code from the Tiny Speech Synth written by Stepanov Andrey which I translated to Delphi. See tss.pas and Speech.pas for details.
  • The TuneSmithy idea came from Robert Inventor.

  • For the DaringFireball mark-down processor used in generating the help docs I used code from Grahame Grieve. This in turn was a port of the TxtMrk mark-down implementation by René Jeschke. I've modified the code a bit for layout / readability reasons.
  • Andreas Trepte supplied the original picture of the wren, this was made into a logo by epwhorl and I modified it a bit later.

I may have forgotten some but I believe the list above to be fairly complete &ndash; please check the source code for more information. Thanks to all who so generously published their code for others to use and learn from.
