Audulus goes big with the 3.5 update, adding hundreds of modules
Audulus 3.5 introduces huge graphic updates and hundreds of exciting new modules to their intuitive modular synthesis software.
Audulus is an incredibly expansive tool for sound design and music creation, offering a wide range of possibilities and a very easy-to-use, minimalist interface. Audulus 3.5 adds a variety of analog-modelled VCAs based on diode, JFET and tube amp designs alongside analog-modelled VCFs based on ladder and op-amp topologies. They’ve expanded their choice of oscillators with additive and FM designs amongst others.
The new update also introduces some interesting new sequencers in the form of a 3D sequencer, a random sequencer, shape and pattern-based sequencers and matrix sequencers, to name a few. Audulus 3.5 has a series of weird and wonderful modulation generators to fit the style of the new sequencers.
Granular delays, wave folders, phasers, flangers and new distortion modules can all be found in the new update, alongside some more advanced cv/gate control modules such as clock dividers, mults, random clock generators, attenuators and logic gates.
Audulus LLC have also added a toolkit for building your own modules, in-case there weren’t already enough to choose from.
3.5 brings all new graphics features
The update introduces a new wire highlighting feature – when you select a module in your “rack” all the cables connected to its inputs and outputs will be highlighted, making it much easier to trace signal flow in your patch.
They’ve also rebuilt the interface around vectors, making it much easier to scale the visual elements while maintaining the elegant, sharp visual appeal. This made scaling the application for mobile devices much more fluid – Audulus is available on iOS and integrated seamlessly with iCloud, allowing you to share patches between the iOS and OSX application.
The downside is that it is currently only available on iOS and OSX. For USD $49 (Around R585) it’s a great all-in-one solution for anyone who wants to explore the world of modular synthesis.
