SSR London - Patch Building Friday: Modular Synthesis Abstractions
Patch Building Friday: Modular Synthesis Abstractions
This Patch Building Friday session focused on a comparison between the hardware modular synthesis world and its counterparts in the software landscape.

Attendees were able to experience patch building on analogue modular hardware and also had the opportunity to build their own patches within various software equivalents, such as Reaktor, Max for Live, Oscillot and Pure Data. This empowers users to build their own unique synthesis patches for production, sound design and performance. Cutting edge techniques were also demonstrated, to integrate the analogue hardware modular world with its counterparts in the software landscape via DC coupled audio interfaces, allowing software control of analogue CV modules.

The day was split into two, with the morning focusing on using software such as Ableton and Native Instruments with Electronic Music & DJ Practice course leader Jake Williams. The afternoon session featured a guest spot from Phelan Kane, a London based music producer who's clients have included Radiohead, Placebo and Depeche Mode.

We would like to thank everyone who attended to making this such a great day, and to Jake and Phelan for inspiring everyone and sharing their knowledge!
