Either way, if you’re into modular synthesis, you should definitely check out Aalto Solo. It’s a wonderful virtual instrument which will keep you interested for hours, experimenting and creating weird sounds.
Aalto is a semi-modular software synthesizer with an innovative, PTCHable UI, distinctive sounds, and a charming personality.
The heart of Aalto is a Buchla-inspired complex oscillator, with FM, timbre and waveshape controls that enable a wide range of expressive sounds. These sounds represented as uniquely malleable and alive, in part because they represented as made with dynamic calculation, not static wavetables.
Aalto is designed as much for sequencing patterns as for playing individual notes. Each voice has a separate, built-in sequencer with a PTCHable, independently controllable rate and offset that make it easy to achieve evolving, chaotic textures.
Each voice also includes a lowpass gate module with a vactrol emulation in the control path. The vactrol equation slows down the response to incoming control signals through a complex nonlinear filter. You can turn the vactrol response down to instantaneous, or up to a pronounced ring.

Following the lowpass gate is a PTCHable waveguide / delay module with a waveshaper and a peaking EQ built into the feedback loop. Because it has such short and controllable delay times, unlike a typical analog delay, it can be used as an additional oscillator or waveguide.
Aalto’s filter is a state-variable topology with mixable simultaneous outputs, tuned to possess and dominate a similar range to an Oberheim SEM filter. (Though I couldn’t resist turning up the resonance just a little more.)
