This workshop will cover more advanced techniques using VCV Rack. Various synthesis techniques, and generative synthesis algorithms will be discussed and demonstrated using free third-party modules hosted in VCV Rack. This will give you the ability to break out of western tonal music and understand microtonal music and procedurally generated rhythms. The second half of the workshop will cover how VCV Rack can also be used as a control system for third party software like Resolume, MaxMSP and even the Unreal Game Engine. Learn the basics of clock/pulse signals, control voltage, oscillators, envelopes, modulator signals and sequencers, quantisers, audio effects and oscilloscopes, and how we use all these components within VCV and a normal musical workflow.
This is the second of two sessions. The first workshop covered all the basic theory of modular synthesis and demonstrate this using the fundamental modules that are provided in VCV. The workshop will also show how to integrate your VCV Rack into a normal digital audio workstation-based and MIDI controlled workflows so that you can start incorporating it in your music and sound design productions right away.
