I’d like to thank Andrew Belt, all the developers and the community (so, basically everyone, except me) for the dedication and effort that has been put into VCV Rack. I used it for awhile in 2017, but didn’t come back until 2020. It’s absolutely amazing how much it’s transformed over the last few years. I remember looking through Keyboard magazine’s synth ads in the 1970’s and saying “yeah, I’ll never be able to afford that”. Now, everyone has a free modular synth! This was especially needed in 2020. Thanks again and… Best wishes for everyone in 2021!
I second all those feelings of gratitude to everyone on this forum, I have come so far due to all the participants in this community. Omri Cohen has to get a special mention for all his wonderful tutorials. All the best for Christmas and a better New Year to you all
+1 for this! I first downloaded rack in 2018 and I’m amazed what I can do with it now. I mainly use it as a modular guitar effects system, which is something I wanted about 25 years ago and thought I’d never get. Infinite possibilities for sound design, plus I can add VST plugins, new synth modules all the time and in the unlikely event I get bored of all that, I can now knock up my own FX in Pure Data and feed that into everything else too. Mind blowing.
Bumping… what a nice uplifting post, cheers to you @Worker_13!
Yes! I couldn’t believe it when I found it this year. “Stunning” was my first post here and I still think that.
I don’t know if you’ve read Andew’s mission statement https://vcvrack.com/manual/About Seems like mission accomplished. He and the community have done a very good thing.
“…the modular synthesizer is possibly the most excluding instrument on the planet…”
I just bought the beginners course from Omri. Excellent learning materials.
