Softube Modular

Reviewed By Askal [all]
May 10th, 2024
Version reviewed: 2.5.83 on Mac

Yes, CPU-hungry, expensive (w additional modules) and clunky. But also authentical and prestine sound. I'll have to give the full five stars although I am annoyed from the limitations in workflow.

Because it is the closest to the real thing I will ever get. Even if you could afford let's say the doepfer series - the possibility of dragging as much modules as your CPU can carry is only given in the virtual world (or a billionaire's world).

The sound is powerful, cuts through every mix and the selection of modules is awesome! Also you can buy one of the model-series standalone synth which also come with singular modules for the MODULAR system, nice additions with a good value/money rate.

I agree to nearly everything, what has been said here so far. Only that I would have got me Softube's Modular even if Voltage Modular would have been on the market earlier. I have both, and I use both. I've produced a series of 19 tutorial videos about Softube's Modular, and I've started with a series about Voltage Modular. There's one thing, one aspect I want to emphasize in this discussion: Softube's authentic software versions of great modules like Clouds, Korgasmatron II, Rubicon etc. They don't only look like the original hardware they even behave like it (to 99% at the least). And because I didn't have (and I still don't) the money to buy all these hardware modules, I was and I am very happy to have the chance to work with them using Softube's Modular. And, yes, it's demand on CPU is a terrible limitation (especially, when you're running a screenrecorder to produce videos about the product). The biggest plus with Voltage Modular is (besides the nicely loww CPU demand) the possibility to develop modules of your own (what I'm going to do next year after finishing some current projects). Just a side note: VCV rack is interesting as well, but I don't like the poor documentation of the modules (if there is any documentation at all), and the fact that it is like with chocolates (according to Forrest Gump): You never know, what you get.

Enjoy your day.
