About Sync modular

Sync modular is a modular synthesizer allowing you to build your own synthesizer and sounds.

It was developped by a Russian musician programmer from 1999.

In 2001, the developper was hired by Native Instruments in order to developp Reaktor 5 with Kore technology.

In 2010, Sync modular became a freeware.

Download Sync-modular, instruments and macros created by users or build your own synthesizer.

VST doesnt work, try to reinstall but uninstalling failed. Which folders or registry to clean it?
Colb17h51 UTC - 25 Oct 2016
Not 100% sure. Might have been the heavy version that wasn't released
Wikter11h05 UTC - 18 Oct 2016
Hi Colb, are you sure your Wavesynclite16 wasn't released? I've uesd it, maybe this is the last one with enhanced features, but...
Well, i see there's enough activity to recompile my library again.

Good to see there is activity in sync modular still after all these years.
Here's a synth I built back in ~2000/2001, and never got round to uploading, because of the news about the app being discontinued. It's a wavetable morphing synth with 2 oscillators. There are also a pair of multi-mode LFO/modulators, these include a sequence mode based on another of my creations "InKeyX03". I think this synth is capable of a huge variety of sounds. The demo patches really don't do it justice. Enjoy

by the way, there is already the google drive of Wikter in the link menu, that gather nearly all the ensembles

Hello, i have just build fastly a google drive :


other google drive with different arrangement and files are welcome

i'll put then the address to the menu

Hello Tin, i have added your article to the tutorials links, thanks for your contribution.

Also thanks for your ensembles ! the sound of AtmosC sound quite "industrial", interesting sound, and your fm ensemble very elaborated !

Just a little thing i know about guitare or instruments, the exponential decay makes sound much more realist than the traditionnal ADSR envelopp or things like that.

Have a good day...
tin18h49 UTC - 16 Dec 2015
you are right. the calculation happens simultanusly. SynC modular restricts us to a defined sample-rate. all we can do, is calculate 1/2 sample delay, process the original sample and the 1/2 delayed, and combine them again (in case of 2x upsample). Finaly, it is exactly the same as we in theory would increase the sample-rate in a specific part of the structure. and this isn`t my idea at all. i.e. have a look at wikipedia : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oversampling especially the part "Oversampling in reconstruction"

Hello Tinomo,

Thanks for your ensembles...I should try to add a repertory to deposit the new ensembles of users. I am thinking about that.

Also, i tried to read your article about oversampling. In fact, it seems that the signal is not oversampled at all. I mean, the value in between is not outputted "in between" but is outputted to the current sample, so the result is still a signal at sample rate. I would prefer to understand your ideas then, maybe i have not understood something. See you.

Hello Tinomo,

Thanks for your contribution. I consult very scarcely the email, i checked it but did not see message from you. What about sending your document here in attached file ? i will give the possibiliy to attach any file (not only sync modular). I will then add a link to your artical in the tutorial section...
Tinomo14h18 UTC - 14 Dec 2015
nevermind, found your email adress

Hi Olivier. I Wrote a short article about oversampling in SynC modular. where can I send it?

hello, there is a tutorial section now, if somebody want to add a tutorial about sound synthesis or sync modular, he is welcome

I try to download the software, but the site brings me up here.
Vanjub20h47 UTC - 29 Jul 2015
Olivier, thank you very much.
Olivier11h45 UTC - 29 Jul 2015
hum...you just have to go to the window menu, then skin, then select, then choose "skiny knob" and select your colors. I don't know why the default skin is this awful gray, it's really not appealing when we open sync modular the first time...
Vanjub10h25 UTC - 28 Jul 2015
How can I change the color of the ensemble, the latest version of it is gray and here in the picture such as blue?
Olivier10h12 UTC - 27 Jul 2015
Hello, maybe Wikter could answer to you ? cause he gathered nearly all the sync-modular ensembles from the web...

and Wikter, I have changed the link to your google drive directory

see you all

Tinomo16h03 UTC - 29 May 2015
thanks for fixing, wikter. indeed a stupid bug... I didn`t notice this because i never touched the amp-envelope, all presets i made were full sustain, so there shouldn`t be a difference. anyway thanks for uploading and sharing it.
wikter22h33 UTC - 26 May 2015
Hi! I've revamped the NordLead ensemble...
Now it sounds brighter, faster and more effected...
wikter19h21 UTC - 26 May 2015
OK. MS20 fixed.
A conecction between Decay knob and Decay parameter of the envelope had dissappeared. Really easy!

I've added your presets to the original MS20 SME file inside "Hardware Emulations", but due to the fact that you've been using a faulty sme (the original was faulty too) those patches may sound a bit different.

Please, give them a hear.
Also, I've renamed your presets. Naming presets helps to keep banks tidy.

Thanks Tinomo aka Tin.
wikter19h14 UTC - 26 May 2015
Hi, while testing MS20 i've found the the ADSR don't works in a classic mode. Sustain control the overall envelope level, or something like that. I can't get a sound when sustain is 0. It seems the decay Stage is after the sustain stage. Does it work that way in the original ms20? I think don't.
wikter19h00 UTC - 26 May 2015
Well I've seen some activity since the last post.
I've uploaded all those new ensembles (2?) to a "NEW" folder inside my drive.
I think i'll keep editing private to avoid deletions.
I'll keep as much updated as I could.
wikter18h53 UTC - 26 May 2015
The problem to register is because of the DAW, you should run the DAW with admin rights. Otherwise, the DAW can't write the key to the system registry.
Tinomo20h23 UTC - 13 May 2015
Hello, in case you use a newer Windows system, don`t forget to run SynC modular once as administrator while you enter the registration code.
Olivier09h04 UTC - 12 May 2015
Hello, your problem registration sound strange...are you copy and paste the right field ? "Free registration" should be enter without additional space at the beginning or at the end, if not exactly the same, then it won't work

Olivier16h18 UTC - 04 May 2015
hello tinomo...thanks for your ensembles. MS-20 is very interesting (and quite complex too) and able to generate quite large spectre of sounds

I discover also there is still some problems in the upload program but your files has been correctly transfered anyway and i will try to correct it soon...

Also, i will add your ensembles in the zip files next
Tinomo06h46 UTC - 03 May 2015
Some inbuild modules were stolen :) others were selfmade. I collect SynC-stuff for a long time now. earlier I didn`t care much about crediting.

I have also a better quality version of CycleSlicer, but it is about 16 Mb big. ther seems to be a filesize limit here,

I hope you enjoy these

Hello all...

Glad to see you again Wikter...Google drive could be a good way to share file. I did not know that possibilitie. Tinomo, are you sure we need to have a google account in order to access to the files ? if you click to the link normally it works. But then, how users can add their own work in that repertory ? in futur I could add this link directly on the menu. Anyway, uploading files directly here is also a simple possibility...

And at least, if someone interested to maintain or improve that website ? i am not very active myself, i do this only to try to rebirth sync modular
Tinomo16h47 UTC - 28 Apr 2015
Thanks Olivier for the upload thingy, i´m preparing something.. .
since i haven`t a google acount yet, i can`t upload to wikter`s googledrive.
Tinomo16h44 UTC - 28 Apr 2015
Hi Olivier, Hi Wikter
i was`nt here for a while.
the best tutorial for synC modular lies inside it`s own helpfile: the "getting startet" section. yes, wikter i remember similar troubles when i first run sync modular on a newer computer os, i think it`s a general problem within sync modular (we hadn`t that admin stuff in the early days of windows).
wikter11h38 UTC - 28 Apr 2015
Hi again,
I've found problems trying to use Sync Modular with my Presonus Studio One. Although it has been previously registered and I had used it from Chainer/Buzz, Studio One was always asking me to update the registration.
the problem has been solved starting Studio One as Admin just one time and filling registration data.
Now it works fine again.
wikter11h00 UTC - 28 Apr 2015
That's a folder to upload and download stuff.

wikter10h59 UTC - 28 Apr 2015

There's a lot of things to share...

Hi Olivier and all of you that use SynC.
An user asked me about tutorials, where can we find tutorials?
Are there any PDF/HTML/DOC files out there showing how to use Sync Modular?
Maybe it's time to create some...

But it's difficult to download your file, we have to download a commercial soft first with lots of ads inside. I will try to add an upload file feature so that we can post file directly here.

So the reason of this website. In fact, the official website has disappeared from the net and it was then impossible to know Sync modular even exist...so i try to rebirth it with that website. Also, it would be cool if new users could publish some new sounds and ensembles. Sync modular still need more synths and sounds in order to be more attractive.
Olivier15h08 UTC - 18 Nov 2014
Hello guys, have something to say about that soft ?
