Synthesizers.com has introduced a free new Windows app designed to help you design modular synths using the company’s modules:
SynthInvent is a free program that allows you to experiment with synthesizer system configurations by simply dragging and dropping modules into cabinets. Systems can be saved and shared, exported to a spreadsheet, or made into a web page.
Useful – but I’d rather see some them come out with some exciting new modules.
