I’ve been working a lot with u-he’s ACE modular synthesizer which recently released. It’s quite fantastic and made my recent Best of 2009 Electronic Music Tech list. ACE has a very nice clean and simple user interface where almost all programming is done on one page.

To program ACE you need to have a basic understanding of how the patch cable system works. To help you shorten your learning curve and to help you make more sense of the factory presets I developed the video above. It’s a step-by-step tutorial with a conceptual overview of patch cables and a walkthrough where I create two presets using patch cables.

  1. Amazing. i was just beginning to use the ACE as my default electronic music synth. i just love this thing. and the price is even for a student like myself perfect.


  2. I agree, the ACE is at a good price point were cost isn’t a barrier for most. Becuase of the price of synths like ACE and Image-line’s Harmless (see posts in the blog) I think these synths will have a strong community.
