The SLUGens pack for SuperCollider 3 is a collection of
novel algorithmic sound synthesis and processing UGens. This
paper describes various non-linear dynamic oscillators, buffer data processors, breakpoint set synthesisers, and miscellaneous filters. Non-standard sound synthesis has been neglected in modern research programmes concentrated on spectral and physical modelling synthesis. Its goal is not the modelling and reproduction of sounds from perceptual or physical acoustical data but the potential of any algorithm, cast into the audio range. Yet where the composer seeks novel sound generation and control possibilities, much interesting territory remains available to explore in the context of what might be termed errant sound synthesis.
