Was it helpful to you? Yes No
arturias finest emulation (closely followed by prophet V)

there is no better vsti if your into subtractive modular synthesis
the gui is clean and sharp , the new updated v2.5 filters sound even more
detailed , its especially suited for elaborate pads , warm and gutsy bass

this synth is not a good beginners starting point , you have to
have at least basic hands on (preferably hardware) modular analog
expirience otherwise you will never get the quality that it can achieve

in v2.5 theres a new generous selection of presets but this is a synth
to program your own. now from this version on its protected by dongle,
transferring of a new license onto an existing Arturia dongle went smooth,
as the filters have been revised there can be differences in cutoff /resonance when importing v2 sounds.

even with a lot of modulations going the sound remains detailed, its also
a good idea placing a limiter behind it when programming because it can get really loud.

the chorus and delay modules give a good spatial feel to the sound and used moderately they enhance the sound well, the phaser is as with all
digital phasers just passable, i have yet to hear a phaseing emulation that has the slurpy rollercoasting movement of a real analog phaser.

needed with editing patches would be an undo/redo function, still missing from v2.5, overall arturia should be applauded to update their vstis
even when they are 5 years down the line, a lesson that especially
native instruments should take notice of since they have a history
of abandoning products very quick.

overall its pretty stable and well worth the asking price if
you specifically look for vintage emulation although it can
do fm sounds also.

Lovely set of sounds by skawiwen - thank you. Is there much demand for new sounds for the Modular - I have some nice things I could upload if there is interest?
