I started building a patch to help explain modular synths/VCV Rack to someone who has only had experience with simple keyboard synths. It’s a work in progress, but I thought I’d share it to get some feedback/suggestions. And others here might find it useful. I think I have the basics, but my music creation experience is limited to VCV Rack, not monosynths or keyboards. Once I’m happy that the patch is “finished” I will make a tutorial video.
The patch features:
Two main oscillators and one sub-oscillator
LFO for each main oscillator, and one for the filter
Very well laid out and labelled Paul! The two “basic synth” things I really had a hard time replicating in VCV when I was starting out that you may want to think about including were tuned Pitchbend and Modwheel vibrato (MW * LFO + V/OCT). As a newb…those took some figuring out along with some trial and error.
Interesting way of making pitchbend ! I’ve been thinking about how to do it lately, and i found another way : i put the v/oct signal from my midi controller through a Stack from bog audio, and assign the pitchbend of the controller to the semitones knob of Stack.
So cool how Modular offers different solution for the same problem
Since it ties in, here’s a nice, efficient way of doing pitchbend and MW+Vibrato that also works with polyphony. If you only need a monophonic way signal, you can replace Knobs with the VCV Unity Mixer. Should probably FR making that one polyphonic.
Kudos to Paul for the idea of chaining Specific Value in to change tuning. Totally stole that from your patch.
