The Old Audulus Forum Patch Collection

There are a few things you should know about this collection before exploring it.

  • There are sometimes multiple versions of the same patch.
    • This is because patches evolved over time and people posted multiple versions of them. I preserved the multiple versions for sake of history. Just look for the latest version of each patch if you want the most up-to-date version. That said, some creators may have even more recent versions that are already posted here on the forum. When in doubt, ask in the Building Help subcategory 2.
  • Turn down your volume before opening any patch to avoid blasting your speakers or headphones.
    • Some patches are loud, others are quiet. Some are meant to be used with external hardware like the Expert Sleepers ES-8. Better be safe than sorry.
  • Not all patches are "correct."
    • Some patches use outdated terminology or techniques that have been superseded. This collection was three years in the making, so expect a lot of evolution from the oldest to newest patches.
  • Use your search function to navigate the folder.
    • There are over 1,800 files in this collection. If, for example, you want to look for a sequencer, use your file search within the folder and type seq . This won’t bring up everything, but it will sort most of them. When looking for an oscillator, look for osc or vco .
  • It IS worth exploring all of these files.
    • If you spend on average one minute on each file, it would take you about 30 hours to explore every patch in this collection. In creating this collection, I realized there is so much untapped potential here: many half-worked projects and threads that deserved to be picked up again. If you’re looking for inspiration, this is the perfect place to find it.
