About Csound: Well, it does involve something similar to programing but it's perfect for this kind of experiment (IMHO), is free and is available for any platform. For your needs, only very minimal skills would be required, AFAIK. Front page: FTP server: Mirror: And various commented "instruments": Mirror: Otherwise, there was at least one Mac program that was designed for psycho-acoustic experiment and was called "synthesiser" (with an 's', if I remember correctly). I can't seem to find it right now, though. But you may try one of these: or these: or these (for Linux): Or even this (for Linux): This page contains other references to software synthesizers: And Syd (formerly "SoftSynth") is a MusicV-like (or Turbosynth-like) instrument editor and software synthesizer for Mac and Windows (and "does" additive synth, AFAIK): There are other implementations of MusicV and Turbosynth-like software synthesizers. In fact, a very old (1988) demo version of Turbosynth is still around: Hope any of this help.
