You’ve waited … It’s arrived … Here’s what it does …
Modular is an advanced synthesizer environment with richly detail graphics and incredible sound for your iPhone 4S or newer, iPod Touch 5th generation or newer, and iPad 3rd generation or newer.
Modular offers you the ability to build your own synthesizer, the way you want to. At the same time, modular is a great tool for learning how analog subtractive synthesis works.
By separating each synthesis process, modules can be connected in any way. You are no longer limited to synthesizers designed by others, you are now in full control of your sound. This is the beauty and power of modular synthesis.
Modular looks, acts, and sounds like a hardware modular synthesizer to give you the familiarity and features that musicians want such as pulse width modulation, oscillator sync, 4 pole ladder filters, and 1v/oct filter tracking.
Traditional modular systems cost $$$$ where modular is free. In-app purchases give you access to advanced modules. Owning a module means you own as many as you can fit in the modular rack. Do you want to build a monster 6 oscillator synth? You can.

I found this via Mashable. This is an amazing idea, ok, not a new idea, but a great idea nevertheless. Configurable, interchangeable. Extendable. I love it. I mean, imagine just how good this could be. It reminds of buglabs modular hardware which had a bespoke DSP module. Buglabs was (is) very developer / prototyping centric, which is fine, that’s what it was designed for, but if this stuff got made it could be amazing.
I’m sure that it would be very complicated, but what isn’t if it’s worth doing?
So, please, someone make this!
And I’d like to add that it should have interchangeable operating systems too, I mean, why not?
Anyway, here’s the video’s description …
A phone only lasts a couple of years before it breaks or becomes obsolete. Although it’s often just one part which killed it we throw everything away since it’s almost impossible to repair or upgrade. visit www.phonebloks.com to show your support and raise your voice.
If you want to add your support, you can do via Thunderclap.
This looks amazing from reading the description. Only a brief description, but I love the sound of the MIDI control.
Here’s the app’s description:
STIX is a powerful 16 channel (8×2 voices) sampling synthesizer and sequencer.
Each kit features no less than 200 parameters that are controllable in real-time via touch or MIDI.
STIX is also a 8 channel 16 step drum sequencer with recording functionality. The sequencer’s 8 patterns can be chained into songs in Track Mode.
Up to 100 Preset Kits can be stored and the 8 drum modules can be performed on the pads throughout the app’s modes.
STIX also features Audiobus compatibility!
