VR Music Maker PatchWorld Headed To Quest Next Week

Another VR music maker is headed to Quest. This time it’s PatchWorld from patchXR.

A store listing for the app appeared this week, confirming it will launch on July 7. Check out a trailer for the game below.

PatchWorld Coming To Quest

PatchWorld offers up a library of tools and instruments to make music with. You’ll design your own avatar and then use unique interfaces to create your own sounds.

patchXR says you’ll be able to share creations online via a PatchWorld platform. In fact you can already view some experiences made in the app over on an official website. Later down the line, multiplayer support too. The platform is also expected to release on PC VR headsets.

The concept looks very similar to other VR apps like Electronauts and Virtuoso, both of which are also available on Quest. Will you be checking out PatchWorld on Quest and/or PC? Let us know in the comments below!

Musical Builder Patchworld is on the way to Meta Quest 2 This Summer

A VR music app called Patchworld is coming to Meta Quest 2 this summer and it’s shaping up to be an exciting entry into the creative catalogue for the hardware. Created by Egg Ball Games, Patchworld will offer players the ability to create everything from interactive musical experiences, to fully immersive live shows.

Patchworld brings an “unprecedented toolset” within this open-ended world builder. There’s a plethora of interchangeable blocks which “power gesture and interaction”, creating music machines, sound processing and sound effects. When married with the visual side, including animation, players can relax and mess around or create a visual album.

This unique music creation tool sounds a lot like existing within a music video while composing the song around you. Patchworld sounds like a monumental clash of audio and visual, which will allow users to create experiences for VR from inside VR itself.

Working with Patchworld is audiovisual artist MOWUKIS, who says: “PatchWorld is a fascinating experience for audiovisual artists. It’s the limitless options of a traditional patching environment, at a human scale and with a physical interface that allows you to create an entirely interactive audiovisual environment and see it take shape in front of you. Having the possibility to physically interact with your creations in real-time generates an emotional bond with the work you’re creating that is very hard to convey with words.”

Coming this summer to Meta Quest 2, players will have access to:

  • Build and share musical worlds in the metaverse, without any coding, for free 
  • Deep modular framework – start with pre-built worlds or create custom instruments, visuals, and gestural interactions
  • 200+ blocks for endless creative options
  • 3D environment and sound assets to get you started
  • 3D spatial audio and stereo mixing
  • Record loops of your avatar performing in 3D space to become a full band
  • Connect your virtual world with your usual setup using MIDI and OSC.
