Boutique Software

Patchboard was created by a composer for composers. M. R. Miller has years of experience developing software solutions for musicians all over the world, from MIT & the Media Lab where he built robots and custom surround sound DSP for an opera for the Prince of Monaco (Death and the Powers) to MOTU where he led the development of Digital Performer. He’s worked with many film, TV and game composers around LA to streamline their processes and amp up their technology, such as Brian Tyler, Fil Eisler, Sean Callery, Austin Wintory and Danny Elfman.

Custom Features

Need a new feature specific to your workflow? Unlike most other professional music software, Patchboard is an individually-crafted, tailored product. You can contract M. R. Miller to design and implement new features for how you work. In fact, some already have!

Your imagination is the limit—don’t hesitate to ask what’s possible.

What the Pros Say
“Gone are the days of endless hours scrolling through thousands of tracks and patches looking for sounds. Patchboard lets me find them instantly and intuitively; it has completely revolutionized my composing workflow. Now the emphasis is where it should be: I can work at the natural pace of writing the music itself.”

— Brian Tyler

“Patchboard is there to remove any impediments to my writing process. The faster I can move through the mechanical stuff, the faster I can implement the next idea... and who knows, that might be THE idea so you don't want to miss it. It's a great tool that allows me to concentrate on my music and not on where something's hiding in my template. It's been a game changer in my studio.”

— Fil Eisler

“Patchboard is an absolute game changer for me. I use Logic and have a very large track palette, and Patchboard allows me to search for and select any track by name, description, or any other desired criteria. That feature alone has saved me enormous amounts of time and has greatly streamlined the creative process. This is a must-have product for any Logic user with large sound palettes.”
