Newgrounds needs support and believe i have an idea how it could get some. Newgrounds has always had a ton of programmers making games and videos. If you can write codes for games and stuff why not code synthesizers and start a new buiseness in the newgrounds shop for computer synthesizers as well. People will pay hundreds of dollars for a good pc synth and although they take ages to develop, the support and money at the end is worth it. If someone put a synth in the NG shop, id buy it if i had any dough. (And i know im not a supporter yet but i have to scrape up some money for it im only 15 and as poor as 7 dollars.)

As a graphics programmer I'd like to point out that writing a synth and writing games are two fundamentally different tasks. Games require logic and architectural design, while synths require a deep knowledge of audio processing. There are various synth-making programs out there that simplify much of this, but in general you still have to know your way around basic audio processing concepts. I still don't actually know how the standard chorus effect works.

Even then, the NG shop doesn't have any kind of software in it right now in the first place. Actually allowing software to be sold via the NG shop would be a first step, but I question whether or not that would actually be helpful. There are many other venues to selling software, and most of them are centered on sites that are actually software-centric, whereas newgrounds tends to be content-centric. It just doesn't mesh very well with the site in general.

I swear to Satan, this is the 5th thread in a day I saw noobie talk about programming without knowing on whatsoever thing they put out.

Game programming and synth programming are totally 2 different thing, as Blackhole12 stated. In fact game programming is included graphic, AI/procedural & synth programming.

Beginner might have hard time swallowing rubbishes. If you really want to create good synth program, at least know what language you will use, how will you design the engine in the most efficiency way and how will you manage your resources.

These are my basic resources when ever I get stuck.

Want to add last thing.

Little or no one will do synth programming for you for free nowadays.

IIRC it's basically a series of very short delays & a crossover - similar process to a flanger/phaser but without feedback
