PatchDump is your website for connecting with other Aalto users. You can learn from their synth patches and use them in your productions. You can also share your patches and see what other people create with them.
The Aalto synthesizer is a software synthesizer made by Madrona Labs. The patches stored in a plain text format, so you can easily copy and paste them - into your Aalto AND into PatchDump. Anything you upload will be covered under the creative commons public domain license. You may only upload patches you have created and own the rights to distribute.
The actual patch files can not be used for commercial purposes, but audio produced by them may be. For example, you may not repackage these patches and sell a patch library, but you may make a .mp3 file and sell it.
That's my attempt at sounding lawyerly. Moving on.
- Download and share Aalto patches.
- Upload an audio sample to demonstrate your patch.
- Share a soundcloud track showing your patch in action.
- Embed a soundcloud track in your comment - show the patch creator what you did with their creation.
- Mark your favorite patches with a 'like' and view them in one place.
How to use patches
To use a patch from this site, copy the text that follows 'Patch:' into your clipboard and then go to your Aalto synth. In the menu, use the 'Paste from clipboard' command to paste the patch information into the synth. You're done at this point.
To share your patch, use the 'Copy from clipboard' command and paste that text into the 'Patch' field when you are creating a new patch.
