Pulse Code, the developers of Rhythm Studio, have released Modular Synthesizer for the iPad & iPhone! The app provides a dynamic modular workspace with intuitive navigation and beautifully rendered graphics, and allows high fidelity virtual analog modular synthesis using band limited oscillators and oversampled filters.
Modular is available in the App Store now and is free! If you want to go beyond the basics you’ll need to buy extra modules at $0.99 US or pay $4.99 for a lifetime bundle offer (via in-app purchase). This will unlock all of the current modules as well as any that are added in the future.
“Modular is a powerful sound design tool which allows you to build your own custom synthesizer by connecting different sound modules together. By separating each synthesis process, modules can be connected in any way. You are no longer limited to fixed synthesizer design, you are now in full control of your sound. This is the beauty and power of modular synthesis. Whether you are a professional musician or a beginner who just loves sound, modular offers you an incredibly powerful synthesizer experience.”
“Modular looks, acts, and sounds like a hardware modular synthesizer to give you features that musicians want such as pulse width modulation, oscillator sync, 4 pole ladder filters, and 1v/oct filter tracking. Traditional modular systems are expensive and out of reach for the average artist. Modular is here to bridge that gap and allow everyone the opportunity to use these powerful synthesizers.”
“Modular provides modules in every category for free. Enough to build a vast array of sounds. Buy only the modules you need or get the bundle which includes all modules including future modules. Owning a module means you use as many as can fit in the modular rack. You want to build a monster 6 oscillator synth? You can.”
“What makes modular special is the audio and visual experience you have with it. Beautifully minimal menu systems and interface along with ultra realistic synthesizer graphics are just the beginning. The real beauty is not what you see, but what you hear. Pristine and punchy oscillators that sound great, even at the extreme ends of the frequency spectrum. It starts with band limited oscillators. Not just traditional methods of band limiting, but band limiting that enables each note you play to have the maximum number of harmonics without distorting.”
“Every detail of the audio has been analyzed to provide you the most amazing sound possible such as buttery smooth filter sweeps and resonance so stable you can use the filter as an oscillator!”
“Modular goes a step further with connectivity and supports Audiobus, Soundcloud, CoreMIDI, as well as Sonoma Audio Copy so that your music making workflow is streamlined and integrated.”
