  1. Just purchased my first iPhone (4s), so perfect timing for this to come out. I love my phone & having a dedicated modular synth for it will be a blast!! Now for midi kit or iPhone controller keyboard & I’m set. I hope Audulus has midi out from its modules, that would rock my world BIG TIME!!!!

  2. Interesting, but the fact that you have to double tap to see parameters is going to make this quite tedious to use, IMO.

    Still, pretty cool things like this exist.

    1. Hey Mahhhk, so the double tap just zooms in so you can turn knobs easily (and interact with other UI). The iPhone’s screen is pretty high resolution, so you can see the parameters without zooming in a lot.

  3. Can we all agree that Taylor is probably the coolest/ most receptive developer out there! I am greatful for his devotion to audulus. Can’t wait to see what comes next

  4. Audulus lets you build your own modules called nodes into little boxes called sub patches. You can choose which knobs and meters show up on your sub patch. These features will let users create their own stomp box style patches on the iPhone!
