For a newcomer to Pulsar, or indeed to Modular Synthesis in general, the Pulsar Modular Synth can be quite bewildering. The new user could open a patch, find themselves confronted with something like this:
and be scared off modular synthesis for life !
As of the 1st Feb 2001 there were over 200 modular patches available to download from PlanetZ and Creamware's CW patch and user patch pages. Many of these, including Creamware's own, come with little or no documentation, and no real indication as to what they have been designed for, modelled on or how best to use them.
The idea of the following pages is to provide an area where individual patches can be examined and they way in which they work explained.
There are three separate pages, one for each version of the Modular. They provide a complete listing of all the patches available. At the very least they will provide the patch name, author, source and a brief description. If the patches have hyper-linked patch names this indicates that they have a separate page devoted to them, with a more in depth description, screen shots, signal flow diagrams, etc.

And in case you can't be bothered to scroll through those two big pages looking for pages that do exist about individual patches, I've listed them below
|All MIII patches now have their own page. Go to the v3 patches page for the links.|
