A new, downloadable synth simulator allows users to learn how to patch and play a modular synthesiser without having to be in the same room as one.
The ‘Synthmulator’ game, which has been designed by escornabois, puts players in front of a PROTO-1 modular, allowing you to play around with its two oscillators, LFOs, filters and envelope generators, plus an attenuator and sequencer. See how it works in a video below.
It’s not the real deal of course, but for anyone with an interest in modular synthesis who doesn’t quite have the cash or space for one, it’s a great way to get acquainted with the versatile and essential instrument. You can download it on a "Name Your Price" basis here.
Listen to an exclusive, ambient modular mix from emerging artist Ann Annie here.
