The Music of Sound

Modular synthesizers are among the most esoteric of devices among electronic music instruments. They are built from separate modules that taken individually would not necessarily output any sound, and they come to life only when interconnected via a tangle of cables. To produce a basic sound, the musician electrician needs to understand how sound synthesis works first - that's the prerequisite to creating a valid signal path across the three different layers inherent to modular systems: the audio path, the control voltages, and the gate signals. That is why composing on a modular system is complex, but fascinating. With a modular synthesizer, you are the instrument maker and the performer. Sometimes, the instrument you have created is so complex that you do not need to think about the musical performance anymore, because the sound itself has become the music!

This soundscape has been created thanks to the generosity of the people making donations to this website, allowing me to build a small modular setup around a Pittsburgh Modular SV-1. May those contributors be assured of my deepest gratitude!

  The Pittsburgh Modular SV-1! Nice. Big fan of PM, and SV-1 has a great oscillator and classic filter. I am currently playing Modular Life with some sidechain action to help the sounds breathe: added analog spring reverb and digital tape delay. A very slow rate of automated sliders is a great way to appreciate the patching on the SV-1. Very nice work.

  This works well with Slow Motion from the patternscapes section.

  Reminds me of Half-Life 2. I can easily see myself driving a rusty car across a post-apocalyptic route. I missed more night scenes in the game, and I am imagining them as I listen to this!

  It's like someone took the best synths from the Blade Runner soundtrack and made it totally interactive and neverending.

  The grid, known by Flynn as "The Digital Frontier" has evolved beyond just being contained within just one room of servers and supercomputers. It was discovered that it spanned the entire internet. It was a chilling and exciting discovery. However, there were still people wanting to use that power for their own ends, and so there was created RootKit. (Layer this with Data Center)

  I tried various other pairs but my favorite with this one so far is Osmosis. It gives me an image of a storybook scene where I'm staring out a tall bedroom window into the night sky and watching the moon light up the sky with twinkling and shooting stars.

  My new favorite concentration noise!

  Speeding this up with fast animation is just incredible.

  Just floating along with the walking bass, letting yourself drift with the atmospheric quality (pair with Code Breaker without the lows and highest for a complex experience).

  This combined with Number Stations is my new go-to at work when I need to focus and write. I feel like I'm in some sort of space action-movie training montage!

  As an aspiring synth artist and programmer, I love this generator and how it puts me at ease and gives me inspiration for sounds I want to create.

  This one is just EPIC. It brings me an intense level of focus while I'm working. 5 Stars!

  Once the Net was established, humans never truly died. Their souls were ingested, encoded, and sent screaming down the endless corridors of light fractionally raising its awareness.

  This is AMAZING. It reminds me so much of the soundtrack to the original Mass Effect game. Exploring Planets in the M35 Mako, finding ancient ruins and raiders... very surreal and relaxing synths.

  I should've known you're into modulars. Lots of nice options in Eurorack for you to work with. Enjoy!

  Loving this new synth soundscape. Hello 2019! :)

  Modular and myNoise: two of my favourite things together! Thank you!

  Oh gosh, this is creepy and beautiful.

  When everyone is asleep, the androids gather their bearings, no longer needing to behold to the wishes of humans. They converse in sounds only they understand, and relax.

  This generator gives me the same vibe as the soundtracks to Prey, Observer and similar games. Eerie, yet at the same time alluring.

  Put on an old Mars documentary on low volume and leaned back. Pure space-age bliss.

 Awesome. While this might be the newest to be added, it is certainly a favorite. I instantly became immersed in the rich and haunting sounds. It is great on its own, but I am interested in how it pairs with other generators...

 This gives me a nostalgic reminiscence of the Half-Life vibe: the echoey psychedelic soundtrack that hums in the background as Gordon Freeman and Alyx Vance explore the White Forest, evoking a feeling of both curiosity and serenity throughout the beautiful desolation.

 I always check out the new generators as I am continuously amazed by what the amazing Dr. Pigeon can create. This is another amazing soundscape generator. It is perfect background music at my office while I am trying to write up case notes (boring!) and block out the sounds of loud children who are temporarily displaced below my office. Thank you again for your amazing work!

 This is a nice generator to have on at work. Interesting enough not to be boring, but also not too intrusive or distracting. Also, it sounds like you're in space, which is a plus.
