This yellow programmable mini synth module from Patchworks is a programmable modular synthesiser and signal processing system which allows you to decide what the hardware does. You want a filter module? Turn your Patchblock into one! You want a crazy sounding bass line synth with built-in arpeggiator? Make it so!
Patchblocks provides an empty canvas, your imagination fills it. The software allows you to program your hardware module the way you want. This is done via a "visual programming language" - in other words, you don't have to go into 100% geek mode and write codes to make it happen. Visual programming is easy, you choose from a variety of low level sound processing elements and combine their functions by connecting them with virtual cables. It's a bit like a modular synthesiser, but in software.
Your library of software modules includes signal generators and processors (e.g. oscillators, filters, delays etc.), signal routing options and even modules for algorithmic composition. The editor lets you emulate how your patch will sound, and once you're happy with it, you can upload it to your Patchblock hardware simply by connecting it via USB. Once programmed you can unplug the Patchblock and jam away.
