A very user-friendly Java implementation of interactive additive sound synthesis is You just "draw" the spectrum you want synthesized on-the-fly. However, the applet does not cover all the features you ask for, and for professional work some other package such as Csound should be used. Note about the Mac: Netscape 4.5 on the Mac has a (platform-dependent) bug that prevents the above (platform-independent) Java applet from giving sound.
