A full patch for Tempera is called a canvas. It contains eight audio samples, all emitters’ and modulators’ configuration, as well as optionally pre-placed emitters.

Tempera comes with a suite of canvases designed specifically for it, with its unique workflow.

When you load a canvas, try playing a note to get an idea of what it is, and then modify it to your liking. Some canvases are melodic, other are percussive, and the rest are anything in between.

After you explore the built-in canvases, it’s time to make your own!


  • When you make your own canvas, save it directly onto an SD card and share it around!

  • Try combining samples from different canvases.

  • To start with a clean slate, load the Empty.canvas inside the System folder, near the end of the list.
