Modular Guitar Effects - Virtual Modular Channel

OK, so I know the rules say one post per user, but the last one went off on a complete tangent so I’m starting a new thread for all of these in the same place. Ideally, I’d like to delete the other posts but that doesn’t seem to be possible. Here’s the complete series so far:

Part 1: Talk Box Guitar

Part 2: Random Step Phaser

Part 3: Ring Modulation

Part 4: Oscillator Sync

Part 5: Auto Swell, Generative Synth Parts and Shimmer Reverb

Part 6: Tuned Resonators and Filters (New! As of yesterday anyway)

Part 7 will be a guitar synth, and after that who knows? I may even try to make some actual music again. If there are any particular effects you’d like me to try and create, please let me know. Any suggestions are welcome (apart from ‘please stop making these awful videos’) :wink: One idea I’ve played around with and not yet finished is combining as many of these as my computer can handle into one monstrous patch, then ‘morphing’ between different effects/settings using Stoermelder Transit.




Thank you Ed, have you tried a Frippertronics style tape set up-Ahornberg tape might work for that!? Would love to see that. Keep doing these please.

Cheers Ady, not exactly but I did an attempt at creating a hardware pedal called the Microcosm. I didn’t include it in this series but it was kind of similar. I used Nysthi’s clockable delay which has a really long delay time (up to 10 seconds I think) and that can do a Frippertronics thing. Usually I just use loopers instead, but if you turn the feedback right up it’s looping but gradually fades out. Is that what you were after?

There’s a link to the patch on that video too but it’s a tricky one to share because I used loads of VST plugins.

Well this is the nearest I have got to Frippertronics, using AI Macro and Resonator and Pathset’s Icetray repeating varying lengths up to 10secs of recording capability. Only just realised this by chance tried Nysthi Clockable delay and that just zombied out the patch it went too high in the red and died. Quite happy with this, got some nice brass trumpet sounds out of Macro repeating over other sounds.

Here’s the latest video, ‘Morphing FX’ using Stoermelder Transit to transition between different settings with an absolute motherload of effects:

Tutorial/explainer video incoming if I can sort out a voice recording chain.
