Patchblock Mini-synth Module


Patchblock Mini-synth Module



All you need is a Patchblock, a Mac or Windows PC and Patchblock's free software. The software allows you to program your hardware module the way you want. This is done in a so called “visual programming language”, in other words, you don't have to go into 100% geek mode and write code to make it happen. Visual programming is easy, you choose from a variety of low level sound processing elements and combine their functions by connecting them with virtual cables – a bit like a modular synthesizer, but in software.

Your library of software modules includes signal generators and processors (e.g. oscillators, filters, delays etc.), signal routing options and even modules for algorithmic composition. Their editor lets you emulate how your patch will sound and once you’re happy with it you can upload it to your Patchblock hardware simply by connecting it via USB. Once programmed you can unplug the Patchblock and jam away. Create a chain of audio effects and processes by connecting them with audio cables, or via a digital connection, by clicking the Patchblocks together directly. Or even both!
