Pulse Code Inc. has released their hotly anticipated Modular Synthesizer! This is a full on Universal skeuomorphic modular system that ships with a bunch of modules to explore. The base app is free to try, and comes with a bunch of free modules, with premium and future modules costing $1 each. Instead of paying for the modules a la carte, you can buy a lifetime bundle which includes all current and future modules. The price on the bundle will increase as new modules come out, but you can buy it today for $5. Considering how many free instruments and effects Pulse Code added to Rhythm Studio over the last 2 years, this looks like an incredible deal!

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.
For the surprisingly large number of you coming here from Portugal and Brazil, Marcus Padrini did a 38 minute walkthrough in Portuguese. For the even larger number of you that speak English, the first part of my Modular tutorial series is available now. The first video uses only the free modules; to give you an idea of what can be achieved without paying a dime. I'm going to knuckle-down and get Part 2 up by tomorrow!
Here is the official promo video.
