How to add effects in VCV Rack

VCV Rack 2 - Using Effects

Let’s talk about effects in VCV Rack 2. By default, you’ll have access to the Delay plugin, which in itself is a very useful effect. The fun thing about modular synthesis is that almost every knob has a CV input, so you’re only limited by your own imagination. In this video, I’ll show you how […]

Patching LFO’s in VCV Rack 2

VCV Rack 2 adding LFO's

VCV Rack 2 a.k.a. the Eurorack simulator is an amazing piece of software to learn modular synthesis. When you’re just starting out with modular synthesis, I usually recommend patching your own subtractive mono synth. In my previous tutorial, I’ve talked about Sequencers. In the video above I’ll dive into LFO’s or Low-Frequency Oscillators. When you’re […]

Continuing on from my previous post on how to get started with VCV Rack we’ll take a look at sequencing with VCV Rack today. Sequencers really are the unsung heroes of any Eurorack modular system. Sequencers allow you to come up with melodies you wouldn’t otherwise think of when using a traditional keyboard. In the […]

Starting out with Eurorack Modular Synthesis Part 3 – Patching

Eurorack Patching Basics

This is the last part of the series on how I made my first DIY Eurorack setup. In Part 1 I talked about the modules and the case, while in part 2 I explained a little bit about the problems I went through when building the modules. This article is about my setup, how it […]

Starting out with Eurorack Modular Synthesis Part 2 – Building

Eurorack DIY

Part-1 of this modular journey series was about orientating myself into a new modular world. In this part, I’m going to show you the process I went through to actually build all modules. I started out with the simplest module you can imagine. A passive mult. I bought this one from AISynthesis and is just […]

Starting out with Eurorack Modular Synthesis Part 1 – Planning

Starting out with Eurorack Modular Synthesis Part 1

I have always been intrigued by Eurorack or modular synthesizers in general. The ability to pick and choose your own synthesizer building blocks and the ability to customize the signal flow opens up an infinite amount of sound design possibilities. And while software like VCV rack is fun, nothing beats the real deal of a […]
