Softube’s Modular simulation software has gathered “modular ready” versions of their most recent software virtual instruments taking it to broader destinations.
One of Softube Modular’s unique selling points was the accurate modelling of existing Eurorack modules to offer a very authentic hardware modular experience in software. This has all changed as they break the chains of modelling hardware and embrace a future of virtual infinite possibility.
We got a hint of this with the release of the Model 72 Synthesizer a few weeks ago which came with the ability to break itself down into modules that could be run inside the Modular environment. Now Software has taken that idea to Statement Lead, Monoment Bass and Parallels.
As with the Model 72 these synths have been broken down into usable models and peppered with CV connections. With Statement Lead you get the dual oscillator as a module complete with the Dirt engine and Aging dial alongside the Filter and Sequencer as another module and the Effects section as another. For Monoment Bass it’s exactly the same idea but with different source material. Parallels is slightly different as it’s a very different sort of synthesizer but the concept is the same this time pulling out the advanced modulation functions as individual modules.
Now you can weave these sound sources, filters and modulators through your Modular patches and entertain them with CV signals from other sources – much fun will ensue.
It’s a great idea that disrupts what Softube Modular stands for in all the best possible ways. I hope this becomes a theme in all future Softube releases as it really sends it off into countless directions.
They are currently on special prices of €89 for Statement Lead, €75 for Monoment Bass and €99 for Parallels.
