Trilobite 1.4 is a Modular Synthesizer application and plugin which features full visual patch editing, extensive parametric control, and an innovative patch breeding system to carry your creativity into hitherto unexplored territory!  Using the same natural phenomena that brought you jellyfish, the platypus, Tyrannosaurus Rex, and yourself, this synth exploits Darwinian Natural Selection to help you create radically bizarre new sounds from simple basic acoustic building blocks.  Trilobite’s visual editor allows you to construct custom synthesis patches to create drones, keyboard instruments, effects…you name it!  Once you’ve created a custom instrument, you can then use the Evolution Engine to create thousands of mutated possibilities, and even breed your new patch with others that you love.

This version introduces new parameter-naming features, fixes performance issues and redraw bugs, and includes an extended collection of advanced modules not included in the free version.  Click on any of the following links to get more information about these:

module_gateThe Gate Module allows smooth cross-fade between two input sounds…


module_sound_colorThe Sound Color Module adds human vocal sounds and vocal filter qualities…

module_pulse_width_modulatorThe Pulse Width Modulator generates waveforms ideal for simulating the human glottis and creating interesting duty cycle modulation effects…

module_routerThe Router lets you multiplex signals using input matrix coordinates…



module_sample_holdThe Sample Hold Module allows triggered capture of instantaneous sample values for emergent sequence effects and control value sustain…

module_time_sequenceThe Time Sequence Module provides triggers in a time interval pattern…

module_value_sequenceThe Value Sequence Module gives conventional stage value sequencing…


module_tweaker…and the Tweaker, 12 frequency domain effects in one!
