Modular Sound Design Environment

Free patches

We publish free patches and making-of videos from time to time.

Filter design

A 1Zero filter, a 1Pole filter and a naive ladder filter with TanH waveshaping in the feedback path.

October 9, 2019

Shift register

A chain of variables that pass their value from the first unit to the last one when a trigger event happens.

September 12, 2019

Acoustic piano

The patch resembles the sound of an acoustic piano.

September 6, 2019

Quick reverb

A nice sounding reverb algorithm.

August 30, 2019

Audio rate clock

A clock that runs with sample rate precision, and also works without running the transport.

August 22, 2019

Glitchy pluck synth

A polyphonic pluck sound that uses a modulated delay to create a glitchy sound.

August 8, 2019

Analogue drums

A drumkit containing analogue style drums (kick, snare, clap, hihat, rimshot).

July 25, 2019

Custom utilities

Utilities for use in your own patches or other modular software with VST support.

July 4, 2019

Acoustic string

This patch is a simplified version of the polyphonic string preset available in Alpha Forever.

June 26, 2019

Generative sequencing pt2

A node that reacts differently each time it receives trigger signals.

June 14, 2019

Drum replacer / enhancer

A frequency dependent peak detector and triggers simple synths using it to spice up a drumloop.

June 7, 2019

Generative sequencer pt1

A patch that creates random rhythm and melody.

May 29, 2019

Scaled stab

A simple and fun patch that outputs a 3 voice chord that is always adapting to a predefined scale using unison.

May 21, 2019

Advanced beat repeater

A beat repeater effect with quantized repeat parameter and pitch functions.

May 12, 2019

Procedural sound design pack

A collection of procedural sound patches that you can reuse and modify for your own sound design needs.

April 3, 2019

Euclidean beat generator

Four simple euclidean beat generators, triggering a kick, a snare, a hi-hat and a synth stab. Euclidean beat generators are distributing beats at an even distance across a musical pattern. Since the resolution of a pattern is limited (16 steps in our case), aliasing occurs, which creates syncopation and other rythmic artifacts.

March 26, 2019

The powerknob

Controlling multiple parameters in many ways using one knob only.

March 19, 2019

Simple compressor

A simple compressor with 'Attack', 'Release', 'Threshold' and 'Ratio' controls.

March 12, 2019

Twisted envelopes

ADSR envelopes into a complex modulation system form an evolving pad.

March 5, 2019

Creative gating

This patch shows alternative gating methods for envelopes, LFO’s and envelope followers. You can get really complex modulation with just a few nodes.

February 26, 2019

Burst delay

A delay effect designed for live usage. The effect lets a short burst of the input signal into the delay, which uses a resonant filter and a waveshaper in the feedback path. The effect is temposynced and can be used with high feedback levels.

February 5, 2019

8 band vocoder

The classic 8 band vocoder, that can be extended easily to more bands. Note: during the patching Balázs made a little mistake. The 'B' input plug of the 'Mul 7' node inside the Vocoder designer should have been connected to the 'ByF' output plug of the 'Band 3' node.

January 28, 2019

Audio granulizer

A granular effect that turns any incoming sound into a pad sound or a glitch effect.

January 23, 2019

Synthwave synth

A synthwave patch using phase modulation.

January 16, 2019

Ambient piano pad

A pad that mimics the sound characteristics of a piano. This patch is using techniques you may know from our Organic sound design noding session:

January 4, 2019

Acid bassline

A 303 style acid synth. Instead of mimicking sonic capabilities of a real bass line, the synth focuses more on creating the unique articulations of the instrument, like accent and slide.

December 28, 2018

Organic sound design

An organic sounding instrument with different physical modelling techniques.

December 20, 2018

Chiptune chords

A chiptune chord sound with bit depth and sample rate reduction.

December 14, 2018


A growling bass sound with 6 oscillators and a filter.

December 7, 2018

Spinning mallets

An organic sounding patch where the sound is generated by resonant bandpass filters.

November 29, 2018

Diffused pad with bass

A fast synth arpeggio with reverb that always stays in scale layered over a deep bass synth.

November 20, 2018

Sustaining harp

A karplus-strong based sustaining harp-like sound.
