miRack is a Eurorack-style modular synthesizer, playground, and fx. It aims to provide user experience and audio quality close to those of the real Eurorack hardware.
The app comes with more than 500 modules created by third-party developers and adapted for mobile devices by miRack team. New modules are added regularly.
miRack supports both audio input and output, so it can be used to build both custom audio generators and effects, and can work with Audiobus and IAA hosts. Supports Ableton Link. Supports Core MIDI, inter-app MIDI and MIDI learn to automate and control your patch when miRack is running in background.
Now includes AUv3 plugin. Use multiple instances of miRack in your project with ability to record and automate changes of almost any virtual module control.
Newer devices are recommended for better performance. Modules may vary greatly in CPU usage, the size of the patch your device is able run will depend on the modules used.

This update adds Lindenberg Research module pack with 5 filters, waveshaper, analog VCO and delay, and other great modules.

Modular Playground on IOS!
MiRack is just a terrific modular experience on the IPad! For example, the Mutable Instruments clones sound fantastic and are simply a delight to mess around with. Modular synthesis can have a steep learning curve, but thanks to numerous VCV Rack tutorials on the internet you can get up to speed fairly quickly on how to make patches.
I hope this app continues to receive support as it really sounds and feels like your working with real modular gear in ways other apps just can not match. Moog Model 15 is outstanding but it is not even a quarter as flexible in routing and sound design as MiRack. The control voltage routing options alone are almost limitless. Honestly, MiRack could easily be used to teach a full year course on electronic music if one desired to do so. It is that authentic and true to real modular hardware.
Needs AU3 support, IAA or Audiobus like yesterday. Would love additional modules like Plateau (lush reverb) to be added. Even reasonably priced modules for purchase would be a fantastic way to always upgrade the app. As is, it is easily a 5 star app that can take you places only $10,000 worth of gear or more could take you previously. Kudos to the developers for bringing VCV Rack to IOS!
Fleece my knees & grease my bees
Sometimes you don’t realize what you are missing or that you’re missing anything at all until you go looking for the variable unknown. I’ve been involved in music making of all kinds for decades - from playing the drums, guitar, bass, and synths, in bands and in the studio to running live streams of mixes made on the fly in AUM to Mixlr that incorporate frequency filtering of found sound and reappropriating recorded political addresses with beats and effects - hammering the insanity we have in the top levels of government in the US ... but when I turned to this app I realized it was a supplement for my cptsd symptoms. It helps me relax when anxiety starts approaching the dangerous threshold. There’s something about loosely controlling the arbitrary nature of these devices, which if I had the cash I would surely be engaged in the real deal since the experience is just drastically different, but for a ten spot this is doing me just fine while giving me the knowledge of what I will need when I start buying individual modules for a real rack.
Thanks to the devs for this ✪✪✪✪✪
This is *SO* awesome!
I love the UI. Everything feels so organized and not chaotic at all. The wires are perfectly made not to obstruct the view, so you can clearly see the labels and controls. There’s even an option to hide them, but they haven’t bothered me yet. I stumbled upon this app through YT about a month ago, and was a bit reluctant to buy it, because I already got couple of other “wired” modular synths, and they get zero usage. Well that is so not because they have a bad sound, it’s because I don’t like their UI. This miRack has a very pleasant UI. Easy to see everything on a 10.5” iPad, zoom in to get to actual knobs... just well designed with user in mind.
You can use this as an instrument, play with any controller keyboard. Or you can put it into FX slot as IAA, to process the sound in many interesting ways...
One huge request for the developers though: please make a polyphonic module, Playing like 8 note would be really cool for some patches.
Oh and one more request, please make the patches manual-only save. We all love to experiment, and when you do that, it’s easy to get carried away and mess your good patch, or maybe come up with something completely new that’s also good. So pressing save/“save as” can be of great help! :)
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
