The main draw of modular synthesis is the full customization of patches. The TAL MOD has a laundry list of great features to help you with this including:

- 3 adsr's.

- Modulation envelope with spline or optional step mode. Trigger and host sync mode.

TAL MOD is a full featured plugin that allows complete control over every step of creating patches. There are hundreds of presets that come with this TAL synth for those who want to run and gun. 

You can also change anything in the preset to fine tune it to what you are looking for. Whether you create your own patches or use the presets, TAL MOD fits in perfectly with any workflow and any skill level.

TAL MOD is a powerful modular synthesis plugin. Modular synthesis is a type of synthesis where instead of using one fully equipped unit that can do it all, you have different modules for each part of the process that you manually chain together. 

In the real world, you would use a Eurorack to mount each module and then use patch cables to connect them all together. TAL Mod is a similar concept but it is done through the plugin on your computer monitor.  

When you first open TAL Mod, it’s going to start out with an initialized patch that you can build on from there. Each oscillator can have up to seven different voices with up to twelve voices globally, which gives you tons of options to create unique sounds. 

A stereo width control fine tunes your sound even more. 

Modular synthesis can be intimidating at first, but TAL MOD makes the concept approachable and fun. 

With its full range of features, hundreds of presets, and unique patch cable design, TAL MOD will work with any skill level and is the perfect plugin for anyone who wants full control of their patches or who is looking for tons of great sounding presets. 

Special thanks to TAL Software for giving a digital license to their products so we can review them for you all to watch! Thanks TAL!
