Virtual Eurorack Synth
Created in close collaboration with Doepfer, Softube Format-Modular gives you both the sound, flexibility and expandability of a true analog modular synthesizer. But Softube Format-Modular is more than just another virtual synthesizer plug-in - it's an entirely new modular synth standard.
As a Format-Modular owner, the basic system gives you a great toolkit to start out with. It includes seven modeled Doepfer modules and over 20 utility modules. But there is much more to discover. Additional modules from quality Eurorack vendors—starting with a range of units from cutting-edge manufacturer Intellijel—are available for separate purchase. More modules will continuously be made available. Owners of Softube's drum synth Heartbeat can add its instrument and EQ modules to Format-Modular and combine them with any other modules. Softube's award-winning engineering team have modeled each analog module, component by component, and the resulting plug-ins are sonically indistinguishable from their hardware counterparts.
Welcome Experts - And Beginners
Experienced Eurorack synth users will be right at home from the start. Format-Modular's workflow is very close to the use of physical Eurorack modular synths. Add modules, connect them using virtual patch cords, adjust their knobs and switches to your heart's desire. Get MIDI connectivity with the MIDI To CV/Gate Converter and add any of the included step sequencers - unless you prefer using your DAW's built-in sequencer, of course.
To beginners, a modular synthesizer can be dFormat-AUnting at first. But Format-Modular offers a wide range of expertly designed presets, immediately available to be put to use in your music. When you are ready to learn more about patching a Eurorack synth, the manual offers step by step patching tutorials that go hand in hand with the included tutorial presets.
Both experts and beginners will enjoy the included Performance modules. These give the user a limited set of knobs and buttons that can be freely assigned to control any parameter on any module in the current patch—making creative tweaking on the fly super easy and accessible for inspired studio production and live performances.
