Free-to-use Patch Symbols

In PATCH & TWEAK, we present an updated system to describe patches by use of symbols and colored connections. We’ve made the symbols free of use for everyone (detailed Creative Commons licensing information is in the download file) in the hope to establish a unified visual language for documenting and sharing modular synth patches.

The symbols and the patching system is optimized for learning, exploring, and sharing patches between modular synth users, different formats, and independently of what specific modules are used in the patch.

If you are an educator, or use these in any educational context, please let us know, as we would be more than happy to share your efforts.

If you have any comments, suggestions, or the like, please let us know.
