Modular404 is dedicated to modular synthesizer tracks of 404 seconds.
All tracks are produced in realtime using hardware modular synthesizers
Modular404 releases on bandcamp as well as mainstream streaming platforms. The purpose is to give more exposure to quality modular artists and tracks.
There is no business plan behind Modular404, it just started in the year 2018 as a kind of glitch: right after taking a shower, a hand reaching out to the towel, one foot lifted to get out of the shower cabin, a sudden spark of light: one of those moments when a long story becomes clear at an instant a kind of glitch.
Early 2023, we reached 30000 streams on Spotify and tracks are picked up in other playlists, all happening purely organic. We don't see streaming as an enemy, we embrace it as a way to find a new audience for quality modular tracks. Real fans may buy the next release of an artist, come to a live concert or propose plans for a project.
It’s good to see the modular community growing, there’s also a modular radio station https://modular-station.com and Modular404 has a weekly show on it :-)
Thank you for being here, but now is the time to stop reading and start listening!

5U also exists as a standard
A modular synthesizer is a combination of modules. These modules can be connected together in nearly endless ways. You don’t buy a modular system at once, it is something that grows. Every modular synthesizer is different!
