=> jaynothin: VCV LIVE streaming and music thread

Not sure if this is the right place to post that I am streaming live.

You can listen at: https://www.twitch.tv/jaynothin

I’m starting the stream playing an old patch, but I may also try something from scratch after the “performance” or whatever you wanna call it.

See you there.



There’s got to be a better way of knowing when other people in the community are streaming. Like a portal on the front page of the vcvrack site? I suppose that wouldn’t work for people who only stream VCV occasionally but for Jay and myself, who only stream VCV, it would be okay.

Cool to see you here Jay! I hope to catch the next live stream :slight_smile:

I can put the dates in News of the Rack, just tell me until sunday noon

Not sure what you mean exactly?

ok, News of the Rack is a weekly pdf Newspaper about all important things concerning VCV-Rack which happend the past week and if I have dates of coming things I can announce them, I begin working on a new issues every sunday at noon and it will be finished and uploades here, in the facebook group and on github about midnight

Oh, I didn’t know that. Well, I don’t have dates really. I only stream randomly, on twitch. Often, but randomly if I am not busy.

I announce it 40-50% of the time, and if anyone catches it I’m more than happy like that. This is bad behavior in the world of “scheduled media” I know, I know. I’m sorta “devoided” of ambitions, if I may say it that way. :stuck_out_tongue:

So I guess I might not fit in a “weekly” newspaper, sorry about that.

The thing of it is, I play VCV whenever I feel the need, (happens a lot :wink: ), and I just happened to stream it all along. Why not right?? :slight_smile:

I’m trying to get more “disciplined”, or if you will, looking for more “structures” in my very own chaos of mine, but in this field I’m a slow learner, very slow. :smiley:

ok, I see, maybe I can mention your channel and tell the folks to look there occasionally :metal::sunglasses:

Oh that would be very nice of you. Thanks a lot. :+1:

So where can I find this News Of The Rack?

No problem, it’s a pleasure. I post it here and in the facebook group and all past issues are also in my github repository https://github.com/the1andonlydrno/News-of-the-Rack

Bliffton1, (mscHack), asked me to restream a patch so he could hear it LIVE. So I did a 24 min+ stream of Frost, (name of the patch). I am quite happy with the result except for 2-3 audio gltiches. It would seem that I can’t escape the glitch curse, but at least I have it under control (yeah right).

If you like oldies, 80’s, ambient, music film like Blade Runner, Antarctica or dare I say “Vangelish” type of music, you might like this piece.

No generative processes or techniques were harmed in the making of this patch :stuck_out_tongue: unless a good dose of Bernoulli gates is considered “generative”.

Anyway enough rambling about, here’s the 24 min long result: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/375453447


Is it possible to mix together, a modular synth, a funky groove, a spooky music atmosphere, in a jazzy feel and use only the click of a mouse to perform live?

For those who missed and would like to watch a highlight of my latest LIVE stream, where I attempted to answer such a question in this 3 hour long video.

Too long? Jump in any part, you might enjoy it. You can lower the resolution of the video if you have a low bandwidth.

I hope you enjoy. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/405909347


“Look mom! I made my first module.”

Well it’s just a “blank” panel, but I had to start somewhere right? :alien:

I used GECO from Hora-Music, Inkscape and GIMP.

Being a neophyte in coding and even using GECO for “people that has never code a line of code”, it gave me a serious headache (literally).

And when it came to the part of “building” makefile? I had to ask bliffton1 (mscHack) because I was totally lost :scream:

Here’s a look of the blank panel.


Jeez, now you’re making me feel guilty for not doing my own modules!

Well, correct me if I’m mistaking, but you do know how to code right?? So why not give it a shot? :smiley:

Well, no matter how we’re scared, no matter how we try to hold on, no matter how it goes, someday, somehow, somewhere, something is gonna give, and it’s gonna break and be a big mess. And we’ll start all over again.

Might as well be you who make the mess so to start on you own will. :wink:

Hahaha. :stuck_out_tongue:

This was made 8 months ago for the “Vult giveaway contest”. Still worth a listen.

I should try and play again with that patch. Or make something similar again.

I was streaming live for 8h+ on the 23rd of July 2019.

As usual I forgot to mention it here in the community. But anyway I highlighted the last 1h43 min. I think the idea is pretty much set in that part though, I consider that it’s still a work in progress.

You don’t need to listen to the whole thing but I hope you enjoy at least a good 5-10 min or all of it. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/457587443


cool, and certainly enjoyable! got a nice summer feeling to it. now i need a daiquiri!
