Creating a playable synth?


I’m a beginner to modular and have been interested in learning it. I haven’t been able to find anything online to help me learn. So far I’ve only been able to make a synth sound that plays on my midi keyboard but doesn’t have ADSR on it. It’s just one continuous note. How can I create a playable synth on a midi keyboard?


In a couple of days once the old patches are on the new site, you’ll have plenty of MIDI playable synths to choose from as well as a variety of envelopes.

If you post your current patch, I could add an envelope to it to get you started.


I just posted a video that you might helpful.

Also check out and its associated youtube channel, which has tons of useful module demos that can help you on your way.


I’ll be uploading these to the forum soon, but here’s a playlist for Audulus tutorial livestreams I’ve done in the past.

Of course, you can also ask specific questions you have about building here in the Building Help subcategory :slight_smile:


Hey, thanks! Your vid was really helpful. :slight_smile:
