Audulus 3 Adds Nearly 100 Synth Modules … Plus "How to Think in Audulus"

Audulus 3 Adds Nearly 100 Synth Modules … Plus “How to Think in Audulus”


I thought you’d want a little more detail on Audulus 3 and what comes with the new version of the apps for iOS and OSX.

G​et ready for some serious patching – Audulus 3 now comes with nearly 100 Synth Modules arranged in the brand-new Module Library. The modular synthesizer and visual programming sound environment, developed by Taylor Holliday out of San Francisco, also includes a new tutorial series entitled, “How to Think in Audulus.”

“As the Audulus Module Library grows with each update, so too will new tutorials appear,” says Holliday. Written by Audulus LLC’s new Chief Evangelist, Mark Boyd, the tutorial series, in​just three in-app interactive lessons, will bring a total beginner to a basic understanding of how to think in Audulus. “Beginners jump aboard – we’re breaking the synth sound barrier with Audulus 3,” says Holliday.

From oscillators, filters, and envelopes to more unique modules like Touch Feedback Clock and the Cyclone Matrix Mixer, Audulus 3 comes with everything the user needs to build a monster modular sound. “And the best part… the initial library will continue to grow in future 3.X releases,” explains Boyd. “I’m cooking up something new every day, so, even if you’re not a patch designer yourself, you’ll never run out of new toys to play with.”

The UI for Audulus iOS has been totally revamped to maximize clarity and control. A new toolbar allows access to intuitively organized node and module browsers, along with a sleek on-screen multi-touch keyboard. Users can also sort modules by tags, read metadata descriptions of their functions, and even add or edit metadata for their own patches.

For Audulus Mac/Windows, users can also add and edit metadata from a pull-down menu, and the patches in the library are kept organized in menu subfolders.

Some other new features of Audulus 3 include a lasso tool, a new RGB light node with variable brightness, a pitch bend node, and a multi-line text node. Also, all meters are now exposable on sub-patch UIs.

As for the internals, Holliday adds, “I’ve also rewritten Audulus’s internal code in a more efficient language, meaning patches load and run faster. Also, Audulus’s oscillator node has been completely recoded to incorporate cutting-edge DSP techniques.”

Audulus LLC a​lso announces that they have done away with in-app purchases entirely, so every copy of Audulus now comes with access to all nodes and future 3.X updates. “I kinda talked Taylor into it, even though he was thinking about it already,” says Boyd. “The idea is that if more people have access to all of Audulus’s functions from the get-go, they’ll be more inclined to jump into the deep end of patch design.”

In addition to the app itself, the ever-growing online Audulus Forum keeps users up to date on the latest community developments and special Audulus user-only offers. “Whether you’re stuck on a design and need help, or just want to share your latest creation, the forum is the perfect place for all things Audulus,” says Holliday. “I literally would not be without the forum,” adds Boyd. “I learned everything I know about Audulus from being active on the forum – the community there showed me you don’t need to be an expert at programming to make truly unique and great-sounding patches.”

“If you haven’t started using Audulus, now is the perfect time to begin,” says Holliday. “Audulus offers users total control over every aspect of their sound without having to commit to learning a whole new language. If you’re tired of presets, tired of the same old synths, try Audulus 3 and see what you can do when you design sound from first principles.”

Audulus is a minimalist modular software synthesizer and effects processor. With Audulus, users can build synthesizers, design new sounds, or process audio. All with low latency real-time processing suitable for live performance.

Audulus for iOS can be used as a stand-alone instrument or in conjunction with Audulus for Mac, for a round-trip workflow between platforms. Begin a patch on the busride home and then bring it up on your laptop at band practice later that night – with iCloud functionality, moving between platforms couldn’t be easier.

Coming soon: Audulus 3 for Windows, available directly through audulus.com.

Audulus 3 for iPad/iPhone is available on the App Store.

Audulus 3 for Mac is available on the Mac App Store.
