Once again - 6581 can't produce sound without CPU, Paula can't produce sound without CPU, CPU is absolute must.

Did ZX Spectrum can be considered as synthesizer? - YES!

Synthesizer is defined by functionality not by particular HW implementation as even for digital synthesizers with analog modeling like for example older Roland JP-8000 or modern Roland SH-201 they require to use samples, buffers, DAC's to produce sound.
I would avoid to define functionality in freely programmable systems and Amiga have freely programmable system thanks to CPU+Paula.

Btw there CSound for Amiga (quite old but anyway).
