Sound on Sound magazine just published their review of Voltage Modular, calling it "a proper modular monster" and "a true-to-life Eurorack sim." Reviewer Simon Sherbourne writes, "clearly believing that more is more, Cherry Audio's Voltage Modular combines a user-friendly interface with a very generous selection of modules. Whereas a hardware modular has a fixed palette of modules at any given time, there's a kid-in-a-candy-store sensation with software modulars, and Voltage Modular has more candy than most." He concludes, "Voltage Modular gives you a fun and immediate modular experience without dumbing anything down." Check out the full review here: https://www.soundonsound.com/reviews/ch ... ge-modular.
The Cherry Audio Year One Collection remains on sale for only $99 until September 15th, and it includes all 19 commercial modules Cherry Audio has released in the last year - a $280 value. Here are some videos demonstrating some of our favorite modules, all of which are included with the Year One collection:
- The VCO-20 and VCF-20 vintage oscillator and filter modules emulate the raw sound of the Korg MS20: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SoltVjCXiDI
- The incredible Hex Phaser module, perhaps the most powerful phaser module ever designed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c4I7LUy1_S0
- The incredibly unique Lyrinx Filter, based on the incredibly rare Syrinx synthesizer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dgr2gnWi1og
- Polymoog fans will love that the Vintage Resonator is included in the Year one collection, too! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNQNiHwaJvY

Finally, modular musicians have been posting some awesome videos of music they've composed with Voltage Modular. Our favorite so far is this Generative Ambient Patch video from Almanacs. Almanacs writes that he likes "the fat sound of Voltage Modular, probably one of the best sounding soft synths out there." We could listen to this all day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ip_ysYsjhlU
