Developer Jonathan Mackenzie has introduced Ops – a new type of modular synthesizer, designed to be easy to use with touchscreens.
Ops does away with patch cords, using a system of connected blocks with a clear signal flow. The blocks, called ‘ops’, are joined together into structures by dragging and dropping them on screen. Structures can be copied and varied to build-up rich, interesting results.
There are ops to perform a wide range of functions, including interaction, signal generation, effects processing, control, audio input, MIDI input, and pitch and rhythm manipulation.
Here’s a quick video tutorial:
