What is Modula?


The Modula Player, or just M4, is a standalone application that recreates the look and feel of real analog mixing consoles. It can run Modula on macOS and Windows operating systems. Modula connects to your favorite audio host (DAW or NLE) like Cubase, Pro Tools, or Logic Pro, and runs in unison with the Modula Skin plug-ins. Each Modula Skin plug-in loaded into your audio host (DAW or NLE) is automatically mirrored in a new channel in the Modula application. All plug-in controls and parameters will be synchronized. The Modula frame window, called also the rack, can hold up to six racks. The Modula rack can be displayed on different computer monitors, each showing a specific range of channels in your mixing session.
