BC Modular v0.975b Now Available - 30 New Modules (08/03/14)

Post by sharc » Tue Apr 23, 2013 3:59 pm

I'm pleased to announce the latest version of BC Modular is now available to download :)

BC Modular is a collection of over 400 modules for the Creamware/SonicCore Modular II, III & IV devices. Envelopes, Filters, Oscillators, Switches, Mixers etc. provide all the basic building blocks you need for the most complex of modular patches while compatibilty with existing modular modules means that BC Modular can be easily integrated into your patches.

Almost every module parameter has an input socket for extended control and modulation. Each module features a pop-up panel, where the appearance of the module can be edited for easy recognition. In addition, many of the modules feature slider controls for the various module parameters.

The BC package includes it's own Modular Shells with additional IO's for connectivity with other Scope devices in addition to native control applications such as Expert Sleepers Silentway. What's more a suite of software and hardware IO modules are provided which can be loaded directly into your modular patch as an alternative to connecting via the routing window.

Highlights of the package include:

- Circuit Level Modules which allow modular patches to be split across multiple layers each of which can then be saved as modular modules

- 14-bit MIDI control support using MSB & LSB CC pairs for 0-16383 control resolution

- Game Controller Support. Up to 8 Windows game controllers can be given direct access to module parameters.

- STS OSC's provide support for multi-layered STS and Akai sample programs.

- Control Ranger modules for unprecedented refinement of parameter ranges and curves

- BC-Pipe connections for 8 channel bi-directional control via a single modular cable.

+ Too much more to list here :D


The full package is quite large and is growing all the time so I've set up a website and support forum at www.bcmodular.co.uk where the latest updates can be downloaded.

I've also added a light edition of the software to the devices thread here on Z to replace the old version.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all of the testers who've given so much of their time to this over the past few months. Your help has been key to getting this far, but now it's time to give everyone else a shot :P

20/08/13 - Updated to 0.97b

55 new modules added. Various bug fixes.

09/09/13 - Updated to 0.971b

A small update with a mixture of new modules (now 411 and counting), a new shell and a minor bug fix.

08/03/14 - Updated to 0.975b

30 new modules added. Various bug fixes and updates plus some exciting new features

Thank You very much!
A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

The Manual will definately help me out, as I never wanted to embarrass myself by asking what every little detail was.
Now I know.
I also know that the BCF 2000 is great, but I will add a BCR 2000 now and get down to real control live.

Thanks Again Sharcness......

well done on the release sharc

will be releasing soon a akai ax80 emu

and a kawai k3/dss1/dwgs/user wavetables synth

done over 100 multisample dss1 additive wavetables so far once i have all the dwgs and the full draw bar wavetables done will release

very time consuming dialing in the additive engine on the dsm1 for that grungy 12bit 32khz sound

Thank you so much SHARK!
I think your design is great!
I love to colour the modules for each specific function.
And the size of them, just right!
Next time I'll post a patch.
