Running on Linux
Under linux there are several options for both audio output and MIDI input.
Defaults are set at compile time and the desired backend can be set when
starting ZynAddSubFX with the '-I' and '-O' options.
The currently supported backends are:

- Audio Output
    * ALSA (Advanced Linux Sound Architecture)
    * OSS (Open Sound System)
    * JACK (JACK Audio Connection Kit)
    * Port Audio

- MIDI Input
    * ALSA
    * OSS
    * JACK

Running on OSX
Under OSX simply download the binary available on
and run with JACK

Running on Windows
NOTE: At this time only older versions of ZynAddSubFX were compiled on windows
      See older versions on (ie version 2.2.1)

Have fun! :-)
