Introducing Voltage Modular 2.0

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.

Voltage Modular 2.0 blows away all patching limitations and introduces groundbreaking new ways to build complex patches with fewer cables. Unlimited cables per jack allow for endless modulation possibilities. The new Busses feature offers an ingenious new way to build complex patches and eliminate messy cables. Variations take modular synthesis in unprecedented new directions, with unlimited variations available per patch. Play variations individually, or use triggers or CV to move through variations in endless ways. 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. Workflow improvements are everywhere in Voltage Modular 2.0, from custom module categories and search terms to optional auto-alignment of modules in cabinets.

What is Voltage Modular?

Unparalleled Workflow

Designed from the ground up to address the shortcomings of other virtual modular synth instruments. Featuring six-way pop-up mults on all inputs and outputs, super easy repositioning of modules or groups of modules, cables that can be moved and rerouted at all times, and control panels designed to be easy-to-read and operate with extensive visual feedback, including cable signal flow indicators, Voltage Modular offers a clean, polished, virtual modular interface like no other.

Fantastic Sound Quality

All audio processing in Voltage Modular uses high-quality 64-bit double-precision math, and all module processes are zero- latency and operate on individual samples for true modular performance. This translates to fantastic sounding audio-rate frequency and amplitude modulation, oscillator sync, insane delay feedback, and more.

Infinitely Expandable

The innovative module browser allows users to purchase and automatically install modules and sound presets directly from within Voltage Modular for immediate expandability.
