Download Synthesis

Currently the place to go is the release page

On the latest release, download just the file. The other files are not needed.

Unzip the archive somewhere you like. Make sure you bring along ALL the files within the zip, not just Synthesis.exe

It will create a few files nearby itself, so it is good to put it within its own folder.

Run Synthesis

You're ready to run Synthesis!
