XSRDO Patchwork Modular System

Unlike some VSTi synthesizers which claim to be modular but are in fact, really just simple fixed synthesizers where the modulation matrix has been replaced by fancy graphic lines drawn across the screen...

XSRDO Patchwork Modular System is a true modular synthesizer.
You can choose what modules you want, where to put them and how many of them you want. Each module is independent of any other and only becomes active when you start to patch them together in your own creative way.

Simply point and click on a virtual rack header to insert, delete or move a module or click on the XSRDO patchwork modular System title for more options.

  1. No download link? I use Arturia Modular V and your synth (vsti) is the only one that I use along. Best free modular synth software on the web...

  2. Sorry, v091.1 should fix a bug in the previous version.

  3. Well done, Kirsty. Great synth.

  4. Updated to v1.01
    Now with over 60 modules. Some of the new one's are...

    MIDI CV-Gate
    LFO MS10

  5. Great work, Kristi! Thumbs up!
    I've been witing for ages to see a good free vst modular synth like yours.
    If I would put something on my christmas wishlist it would be like more types of filters and more control parameters for the filters, for instance resonance control...
    Merry christmas & happy new year!

  6. I'm just going to keep this simple. Thank you Kirsty, thank you so much. XSRDO works perfectly in Tracktion5 (32). I keep a 32 bit version running as well as a 64 bit version as well. My main synth is Zebra 2 from U-He but XSRDO is a fantastic vintage modular. I'm 62 years old and I grew up with Tomita and Walter/Wendy Carlos. I never thought then I would download a computer file that would contain the entire definition of a top end modular synthesizer. And for free as well! Thank you for all your hard work. Composing old school Electronica is my retirement and it's because of people like you that make it possible.

    All the best,


    Btw, the output is a bit low in Tracktion5 but I just add a second volume plugin maxed for a 6db boost and it takes care of it. But making it a bit hotter would help.

    1. Thanks for the kind words Paul.
      Enjoy the synth.



  7. Kirsty, Could You tell me how to force sample player to loop? :) Cant switch on a diode to be lighted (v.1.08). Btw. its amazing synth, Im really impressed by your skills :) Greetings from Poland!

  8. Hi
    You found a bug! treat yourself to an ice cream :)
    V1.091 Replaces the broken LED with a switch to turn sample
    looping On/Off.

    Regards Kirsty

  9. I will :) You are amazing! thx a lot!

  10. Hello Kirsty
    Thank you for this nice piece of work.
    We use it on Linux 18 on Carla pluginhost and it loads fantastic, its cpu use is acceptable and sounds great and looks great.
    Now we want to use midicontroller automation using a DAW (Qtractor) and record an automationtrack as for all of our other synths, but i don´t see how.
    Is it possible?

    Regards Harry

    1. Hi Harry
      Have you tried using a MIDI_CC module (available from the MIDI menu). It converts MIDI controllers (16-19) data, to values that can be patched anywhere.

      Regards Kirsty
