Looking for some places to find a range of working supercollider synth examples to learn from, adapt and potentially expand the SuperDirt's own collection of examples.

The best starting point is the default-synths.scd, the tutorial-synths.scd and library/default-synths-extra.scd files, which give you some good ideas how to structure the SynthDefs.

Then you can just browse through the UGen helpfiles, the operator helpfiles, and sccode, also through the supercollider examples (under "examples/"). The classics are james mccartney's examples there. Any UGen can be moved to almost any place that is a number, a different ugen. You just need to keep in mind what each input means and what scaing it needs.

For scaling the output (e.g. if you want to use a ugen for modulation) the methods linlin and linexp, range and exprange are very useful. You can find the documentation if you keep your cursor in one of these words and hit cmd-d. (for "documentation").

I got a few ideas from by searching the tags for "analog" or whatever seemed interesting. I also just browsed the help files a lot, looking both for interesting UGens and neat tricks in the provided examples.

FoxDot has some nice ones written in Python, which it can translate to sclang.
