This project aims to create a modular synthesizer plugin (VST3, CLAP). Like those encountered in projects like VCVRack or Bitwig's Grid.

The core idea is having a hexagonal tile map for laying out module instances and connect them at the edges to route audio signals and control signals to inputs of other modules.

A goal is to provide a simple wireless environment to build sound effects, synthesizers or whole generative music patches from predefined modules.

Hosting plugins (VST, LV2, ...) is out of the scope of this project. The goal is rather to have a good set of predefined modules.

Since June 2022 the project is under heavy development again. A rewrite of HexoTK took longer than anticipated, but provides all required features now. All development currently takes place on the "master" branch, so don't be surprised if something does not work. As of 2022-08-16 most of the functionality from end of 2021 has been rewritten and new features and polish are being added right now for the next release.

Make sure to follow Weird Constructors Mastodon account or the releases of this project to be notified once I release a beta or stable release.
