What is [BLOK]?

[BLOK] is an easy to use modular synthesis environment for VST. The available processing blocks are simple and concise and there are no restrictions on how you hook things up. [BLOK] was designed as a platform for teaching audio synthesis to students, so even beginners can get started building their own synthesizers and effects right away!

But most of all, [BLOK] is fun!

Classic synthesizer modules

[BLOK] features everything you would expect from a classic modular synthesizer: oscillators, filters, envelopes, effects and much more.

Easy to use interface

[BLOK] was originally created as an educational program to teach audiodesign principles. This means that each module is simple to understand.

Connect everything

There are no limits on connecting blocks together. if a block generates a signal, connect it up!

Versatile DSP engine

Additive, Subtractive and FM synthesis are all possible. Let Blok be your synthesis swiss army-knife.

Full undo/redo

Dont like what you have done? Go back to a time when you did!

Low in cpu

Blok was made to run well even on low-end computers. On today's machines, it tears up the track! This will let you make more complicated setups and get more bang for your synthesis buck.
