Just jamming with the AE Modular …
This is an introduction to the new TBD module for the AE Modular from tangible waves. The TBD is a multi function module with over 50 plugins for effects and oscillators. All plugins are open source and you can program your own (if you know C++).

This is my second jam for Jamuary 2022. This time I’ve been playing a lot with modulation. Random modulation of the Nyle Filter via the RBSS, LFO modulation of the Core.ae from Wonkystuff and a rhythmic modulation of the waves from the Wavetables via the SEQ8 sequencer. The cool thing in modular synthesis is that you can use a CV/Gate sequencer for so many other things than just pitch.
My first jam in 2022 … enjoy the sounds of the Wavetable module which is going through a delay which is just so slightly modulated to produce a very satisfactory wonky sound.
This is a xmAEs patch which I came up with, as usual completely by accident with detailed explanation of the patch in the second half of the video.
Just a quick jam with the TBD and Cirrus in the really small Synth Explorer system.
In this video I’m showing all the various online resources that are available to assist you in your AE Modular journey of making music with a modular synthesizer. Check out the video description for more details.
This is a very quick demo on how you can sync a Korg Volca with the AE Modular in reply to a question that was asked on the forum: https://forum.aemodular.com/thread/1684/master-module-ctrl-inputs
We released another compilation album of pure modular electronic music. 41 artists from all around the world sent in their work to create a massive 3 hour album with tracks varying from slow ambient soundscapes through experimental rhythmic and noise textures to thumping techno. All these tracks were made using the AE Modular synthesizer system by tangible waves and it is just absolutely amazing how varied and unique they all are. Please check it out and consider purchasing it as all proceed go to Musicians Without Borders, a non profit organisation which inspires people worldwide to engage as peacemakers, use music to transform lives and to heal the trauma of war.
The more I play with the Synth Explorer from tangible waves, the more I learn and it’s just fun! This time I am sending the drums through the WASP filter for bubbly bleeps, a fast pitch modulated OSC for strange sounds and the musical part is done via the SEQ8 and the Quantizer set to fifth notes.
