"The 4ms Spectral Multiband Resonator has a beautiful, versatile, sometimes additive sound. Love it most when its six bands self resonate and the frequencies travel around circular scale settings. Truly original and wonderful, with so much left to explore."
. Warp Records

"I really enjoy how true the Softube Modular plug-in is to the real life patching experience and how many more stacking situations are available. The new 4ms module sounds very accurate to the hardware version."
. Electronic artist, composer and performer

This product is an expansion for Softube Modular. If you do not currently own Modular, you can purchase it HERE.

4ms SMR for Modular can process audio like a classic filter bank, ring like a marimba when plucked/struck, vocode, re-mix tracks, harmonize, output spectral data, quantize other oscillators to scales and much more. It’s deep, versatile and infinitely expands what is possible to achieve with Modular. 

The 4ms SMR consists of six channels of resonant bandpass filters, all individually locked to a twenty notes scale displayed in the centre of the unit via the LED ring. All six filters can easily be swept around their present note scale manually or via CV. The note scales cover everything from Western scales, alternative tunings to more esoteric Gamelan and microtonal scales.

What Does This Mean? 

This means endless fun! You can use SMR as an oscillator bank for additive synthesis, create beautiful moving chord structures, you can use it as a vocoder, phaser, a quantizer, a stereo-widener thingy, a CV source/arpeggiator/sequencer, a remix tool for extracting triggers from recorded material, a drum synthesizer—by pulse triggering odd and even for different rhythms—a basis for multiband compressor patches and just a crazy ass effect. Daunting? The 4ms SMR comes with 75 brand new presets which covers these use cases. Great starting points for further patch-o-rama! Oh, and its CPU usage is comparatively low, so you can add a large number of SMR units to your patches.

Where Do I Even Begin? 

The 4ms SMR can seem a bit daunting at first. That's why it comes with no less than 75 brand new presets which covers the use cases above. Great starting points for further patch-o-rama! Oh, and its CPU usage is comparatively low, so you can add a large number of SMR units to your patches.

Softube’s 4ms Spectral Multiband Resonator plug-in is officially endorsed by 4ms. It faithfully emulates both the hardware and firmware of the original unit, with some minor alterations and improvements.

System Requirements

  • Mac OS X 10.12 or newer (older OS versions may work but are not tested (64-bit only).
  • Windows 64-bit, versions 7, 8 or 10 (64-bit only).
  • Intel Core 2 Duo, AMD Athlon 64 X2 or newer.
  • Screen resolution 1280x800 or larger.
  • Supported sample rates: 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4 and 192 kHz, in both mono and stereo.
  • 8 GB RAM or more is recommended, as well as at least 8 GB hard disk space for installation (individual plug-ins take less space, while sample libraries may require additional disk space).
  • A Softube account is required to register and install the software.
  • An iLok account is required for authorisation of the software.
  • Internet access for downloading installer and managing licenses.
  • iLok generation 2 and up, if you intend to use a physical iLok dongle for authorizing your plug-ins (note that an iLok dongle is not a requirement).
  • In theory, any 64-bit VST, VST3, AU, or AAX (11.0.2 or higher) compatible host application should work.
  • The most recent maintenance release of the DAW application is recommended.

However, due to plug-in host differences between DAWs - and our own rigorous testing standards - we only officially test our plug-ins and instruments in the most recent versions of Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Cubase, Live, Studio One, Digital Performer, Reaper and Sonar. Softube plugins are not tested in the non-listed systems, but they most likely work as long as the system requirements are met. We cannot guarantee a solution for issues in unsupported systems.

  • Softube Modular is required to run this software.
  • Make sure that you always use the latest iLok License Manager. It is not included in the Softube installer but can be downloaded from www.ilok.com​
