Modus is a physical modeling Synthesizer that uses a unique take on it called collision modeling. In Modus, you allow strings, plates, springs, and rattles to collide, resulting in tones that resonate and react like in the real world.
It basically mimics the way strings and plates behave and thanks to different algorithms, you achieve three different types of instruments: strings, plates, and strings-plate. The plugin allows you to control the relationship between these elements and their connections between each other. And these are important because they provide different sound characteristics.
