While the mod­ules in­cluded with Volt­age Mod­u­lar cover a lot of ground, they’re by no means the end of the story. In­te­grated di­rectly into the mo­d­ule browser, the Volt­age Mod­u­lar Store is al­ready home to a healthy se­lec­tion of add-on good­ies by Cherry Au­dio them­selves and pre­mium ef­fects plugin de­vel­op­ers PSP Au­dioware, rang­ing in price from $10-50.

Most of the PSP mod­ules are ex­tracted from the com­pany’s old-but­still-awe­some Ni­tro mul­ti­ef­fects plugin (9/10, 74), high­lights in­clud­ing ni­troPhaser, the ni­troBQF dual par­al­lel fil­ter, ni­troPitch pitchshifter, and ni­troLoFi dig­i­tal dis­tor­tion. The in­flu­ence of other PSP plu­g­ins can also be felt in the PSP De­lay, Plate, Space, Spring, Cho­rus and Flanger mod­ules.

Hope­fully, hav­ing PSP on­board will draw other equally il­lus­tri­ous de­vel­op­ers to the Store. It feels like early days, but the ni­tro se­ries makes a great show­case for the po­ten­tial of VM as a de­vel­op­ment plat­form. In­deed, you don’t have to be a big-name dev to get a look in, ei­ther, as any­one can make their own mod­ules and sub­mit them to Cherry Au­dio for po­ten­tial place­ment in the Store. All you need is the Jav­abased Mo­d­ule De­signer ap­pli­ca­tion, which costs $200 on the Cherry Au­dio web­site. Go for it!

Just look at those bad boys! PSP Au­dioware’s mod­ules most def­i­nitely rock
