Cherry Audio is thrilled to announce the highly anticipated release of Voltage Modular 2.0! This truly massive new release is completely FREE for all Voltage Modular users, and brings innovative new features, workflow improvements, and new sonic possibilities to the realm of software modular synthesis. Voltage Modular 2.0 is the most feature-rich, sonically flexible software modular platform in the world.
A Universe Without Limits
Voltage Modular 2.0 blows away all patching limitations, and introduces groundbreaking new ways to build complex patches with fewer cables.
Previously, every jack in Voltage Modular was really six jacks, multed together. Version 2.0 allows an unlimited number of cables to be plugged into every jack, for endless modulation possibilities.
The new Buses feature offers an ingenious new way to build complex patches and eliminate messy cables. Both input and output jacks can be assigned to buses. All output signals on a bus are mixed, with the result available as an input source on all input jacks. This mimics the alternative patching options offered by instruments such as the ARP 2500 and EMS VCS3.
In addition, Voltage Modular 2.0 lets developers create modules that are normalized to signals on the IO Panel. Modules such as the new DCO-60 and SynthVoice (detailed below) can read CV, gate, and all other signals directly from the IO Panel, eliminating the need to patch these cables every time a new module is added.
The new Variations feature takes modular synthesis in unprecedented new directions. A patch can contain an unlimited number of variations, with each variation storing the positions of all knobs, switches, and settings of all modules contained in the patch. Variations may be played individually, or triggers or CV can be used to move through variations in endless ways. Imagine sequences that iterate through wildly different tones for every note, or sounds that alternate between brighter and softer timbres with every key press.
The IO Panel now includes an integrated Recording section, generating pristine 32-bit floating point audio files, sourced from the IO Panel main left and right outputs. Effortlessly record entire live performances, or use gate signals to automatically start and stop recordings.
Software That Works With You
You'll find endless workflow improvements throughout Voltage Modular 2.0. Some of these changes speed up workflow, while others will inspire you to create new sounds and work in new ways.
We've added numerous new categories to help organize your module library, but that's just the beginning. Custom module categories can be created for any module in your collection, and an unlimited number of search terms can be added to modules, making it easier than ever to find the exact module you're looking for.
Use the new Randomize feature to set a module's sliders, buttons, switches, and other controls to random positions, creating incredibly inspiring results for sequencers and sound generators. The new Bypass feature, available in compatible modules, temporarily removes a module from a patch, offering a fast and easy way to hear an individual module's effect upon a complex sound.
Auto-align all modules to the left is a great way to tidy module layouts and close gaps, and is switchable on a per-cabinet basis. There's even a preference to automatically set new cabinets to use the auto-align feature.
You'll find even more workflow improvements throughout Voltage Modular 2.0!
An Endlessly Evolving Platform
Voltage Modular 2.0 has a thrilling new look. Many of Cherry Audio's modules have been reworked, making them easier to use, more powerful, and more compact. For example, we've added linear FM modulation to the Oscillator module, resonance modulation to the Filter module, dual channels to the Oscilloscope, and tempo sync to the Stereo Delay module. Legacy Cherry Audio modules will continue to be updated over the next couple months.
The Core package has been expanded to include the new Poly Vintage Oscillator, Poly Ladder Filter, Poly Super Oscillator, Poly Super Envelope Generator, Spectrum Analyzer, MIDI File Player, Micro Mult, and Octal Switch modules. These new modules are absolutely FREE to all owners of the Voltage Modular Core package! There are loads of new presets, too, plus there are new presets for the Nucleus and Ignite packages as well.
