But please be aware of the following:

1. All synths are uploaded to the web. They’re big, so you need to use a broadband Internet connection.

2. Synths are by default public and will be visible to everyone on the Internet. You can set the display preference to unlisted if you do not want your synth to be public.

3. Currently the “synther” only runs on Windows
