Explore modular synthesis using open-source virtual modular synthesizer, VCV Rack. Modular synthesis can get a bit technical but it can also yield unique and highly customised results. If you’re interested in learning how to use a modular synth, or VCV Rack in particular, this course will set you on the right path with professional instruction and techniques you can start using right away. In this course we will look at VCV Rack, an Open-source virtual modular synthesizer, it is modelled and behaves like a real world modular synth and even has some modules that are replicas of hardware. It was originally standalone only but recent updates have introduced communication to and from a DAW, using a method similar to Rewire, along with better stability. This course is an introduction to Rack and how to use a Modular Synthesiser. There are a myriad of modules available, this course will cover the basics of CV and gate routing and setting up a basic patch. While this course will mainly focus on using the software as a standalone synth we will also look at incorporating it into an arrangement within a DAW.
