Let’s face it, modular is very popular and it has been for quite a while now. In the mobile world we’ve had a few modular synths and some really spectacular ones in that group. Now we add a new app to the list. S-Modular is a semi modular synthesizer for your iPad. I’m not sure that I’ve seen an app that quite described itself that way before. S-Modular comes from the developer behind PRFORM, WubSynth and Synth Automata, although they have many more in their portfolio.
According to the developer:
S-Modular has been designed to have everything on one screen to make patching quick and easy. Drag from one jack port to another to make a connection, tap a plugged port to change the wires color instantly.
S-Modular has a unique and vintage sound quality, reminiscent of synthesizers from the 70s, warm and rich in character.
Here’s a quick view of the app’s features
- Audiobus 3
- IAA (Inter-App Audio)
- 2x oscillators
- 24db/oct ladder filter
- Resonant hi-pass and low-pass filter
- 2x LFO
- 4 step cv sequencer
- 4 track Mixer
- Audio and cv spliter
- 2x AHR envelope generators
I have to say that it looks really interesting and I’m quite tempted to go take a look and see what it’s like.
S-Modular costs just $3.99 on the app store now:
