Eurorack in your computer
Patching, modulating, oscillating, tweaking, designing, inventing. Whether it's bass, leads, percussion, pads, noise, ambience, effects, realistic emulated instruments, space-and-time-travel craziness, or just a sonic science project, you've found your perfect partner in innovation.
Created in close collaboration with Doepfer, the creators and original stewards of the Eurorack modular synth standard, Softube Modular gives you all the sound, flexibility and expandability of a true analog modular synthesizer. So dive in, and discover a world where anything is possible, and you never run out of patch cables.
Experienced Eurorack synth users will be right at home from the start. Add modules, connect them using virtual patch cords, adjust knobs and switches — it's as close as anything gets to the real thing.
Modular offers a wide range of expertly designed presets, immediately available to be put to use in your music. When you are ready to learn more about patching a Eurorack synth, dig into the step by step patching tutorials included in the manual.
We release new sold-separately add-on modules all the time. So far, there are painstakingly modelled, fully licensed and endorsed emulations of classic hardware modules from 4ms, Buchla, Intellijel, Doepfer, and Mutable Instruments. Watch out for more.
Continuing the legacy
Buchla and Moog started it all with their modular synthesizers in the 1960s. Doepfer made it affordable in the 1990s by introducing the Eurorack standard. Today, the Modular plug-in from Softube makes the modular synthesizer truly accessible to everyone.
The freedom of invention and expression allowed by a modular synthesizer is unparalleled, so whether you're a pioneering sound-design expert or just a curious experimenter, Modular offers an affordable, portable option, without ever compromising on the extraordinary sound quality of its analog forebears.
Build on the basics with expansion modules
As a Modular owner, the basic system gives you a great toolkit to start out with. It includes seven modeled Doepfer modules and over 16 utility modules. But there is much more to discover. Many Softube effects, including Saturation Knob, Tube Delay, the TSAR-1 and TSAR-1R reverbs, and Spring Reverb can be used as modules in Modular, as can our drum machine, Heartbeat; Additional modules from quality Eurorack vendors and modular synth — Intellijel, 4ms, Doepfer, Buchla, Mutable Instruments — are available for separate purchase. More modules are continuously being made available.
An instrument and an FX plug-in
The Modular FX plug-in allows you to run external audio through Modular, and use the system to build your own complex effects. Guitar pedals, compressors, flangers, choruses, autowahs... the only limit is your imagination.
And to make it easy to use and control your patches in the real world, performance modules offer simple, chunky knobs and buttons that can be freely assigned to any parameter on any module in the current patch. Great for studio and stage!
Tweak using Native Instruments hardware
Modular supports Native Instrument's Native Kontrol Standard. This means you can use it with Komplete Kontrol keyboards and Maschine units and get the same intuitive hands-on control of Modular's functions as with any of Native Instruments' own products — all automatically laid out on the hardware's knobs, buttons and keys, and with no additional setting up needed.
