Version 3.3.2
Review by HammerDulcimer

Finally, a modular synth I can afford! (update) - Just a quick update to my earlier review. I wanted to take a moment to mention the excellent support the people at Audulus provide for this application. The few issues I have had with the application have all been addressed promptly and all my questions have been responded to within a few days at most. The user forum at Audulus is a great place for new ideas and user contributed patches. The new 3.3.2 version is running smoothly and continues to improve.

Version 3.4.1
Review by HammerDulcimer

Finally, a modular synth I can afford! (update) - Without a doubt Audulus continues to be the preeminent soft modular synthesizer available for either the macOS or iOS platform. With a clean, minimalist user interface design, a huge variety of nodes, factory supplied prebulit modules, and outstanding performance it is one of the best. The latest 3.4 update adds significant new functionality including the new ADC and DAC nodes which enable Audulus to be connected to a wide variety of multichannel digital audio interfaces including the Expert Sleepers ES-8 USB interface. This allows Audulus to easily interact with traditional modular rack synthesizers as well as a wide variety of digital audio interfaces. With each new update the product continues to improve, with more undoubtly on the way. Truely the Minecraft of music making! With a vibrant user community and outstanding support, Audulus is a great way to explore all aspects of digital music creation. The latest update brings Audulus up to date with macOS High Sierra and once again demonstrates the ongoing support for the app.

Version 3.4.1
Review by Somnambulist2

Audulus Perpetua!!! - This is some amazing software and I’m impressed by what you can do with it. I used to buy lots of different soft synths and effects on the App Store, but once you get to a certain level with Audulus, you don’t need (or covet :-) ) the others so much because you can make new sounds all the time. Or you can just sit back and have Mark B. and the geniuses on the forums develop new patches you can use. Either is great. I’m late to the game on modular synthesis, but I’ve been a musician and software developer for quite a while. Audulus really appeals to my programming sensibility as well as my musical side so I’m using Audulus as a case study example of visual programming for some workflow software. Beautiful product, Taylor!

Version 3.4.1
Review by Schiavilli

my favorite modular environment - I’m not sure if other reviewers have touched on these things, but here are two things that really make Audulus stand out for me vs some other options. One is the ability to patch live without nodes such sequencers restarting. Connections are faded so there aren’t any sudden pops either. Wonderful. Second is that it’s polyphonic in a way that’s a bit like vector algebra: route a mono signal and a poly signal to a module and the mono signal is automatically replicated per voice. This is just how it should work in all apps. Perfect for both sound design and live performance.
