This thesis supports a modular system for the modern composer. The necessary expanse of a modern composer’s expertise is outlined, as well the nature and need for a workflow that is efficient and intuitive. A brief history of the beginning of modularity in audio and music is provided, as well as an investigation of modern software developments that utilize the concept of modularity. Modular and non-modular workflows used by successful composers are explored in order to examine the benefits of a Pro Tools-based modular system. The thesis finally describes an example of our suggested modular system as well as the accompanying Modular System Handbook, and elaborates on the need for a comprehensive handbook that includes instructions on connectivity in addition to guides for involved applications.
