Here I’m demonstrating the following micro modules which are great for shaping, distorting, destroying or otherwise mangling your sound: µTONE, µDISTORTION, µ2SIGAMP, µBITCRUSH, µSUBOCTAVE. The micro module system has been released mid last year and has already revolutionised the AE Modular system by tangible waves by making the modules even smaller!
In May 2022 I visited Robert and the tangible waves team at their headquarters in Murnau in Bavaria. After a series of interviews and videos about the production workflow, Robert showed me his little sanctuary, a former chapel within the building which he has rented to play music and to get inspiration for his module creations. Here, Robert is showing us his process of creating a performance from scratch in the style of Klaus Schulze who had just died a few days before we recorded this video.
It is my pleasure to announce the release of the 4th AEther Waves album made by the amazing AE Modular community!
Just like the volumes before, this album is filled with a surprising variety of styles and moods.
Please think of purchasing it so that we can support Musicians without Borders and the awesome work they are doing by bringing peace to war torn regions with the power of MUSIC!
The Canberra Synth Facebook Group invited me to perform at the newly organised monthly “Evening of Electronica” so I went and did “patch from scratch” where I created a patch on the fly while explaining what I’m doing and why.
Overall, I think it was well received and I’m looking forward to performing there again next year, hopefully.
Just a droning meditative piece to celebrate that winter is slowly ending and that we can look forward to warmer weather.
I had the joy of talking to Zeno aka Keurslager Kurt at this year’s Superbooth 2022. We were talking about how he came to love the AE Modular system, how he started developing his own modules and what his new modules are all about.
This is my first video from my time at Superbooth 2022. Here you can see and hear Robert from tangible waves perform the “Demo Patch”. This patch was used to showcase all the new modules we were presenting at the booth.
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.
