Will from Starling here. The modules from the Via line are now available in the plugin manager. You are welcome to post any questions, feedback, or ideas about them in this thread. We want to know what you like and what you don’t so we can make our present and future modules better. Feel free to post bug reports here, but bonus points if you put them in our issue tracker.
Pardon the long intro, lots to share as we have been super focused on getting the modules out into the world.
They are direct ports of hardware eurorack modules. When we designed the hardware, we wanted to make compact devices that would surprise you with new patching potential for a long time. We also like modules that twist up typical functional categorizations, because that helps us think about making sound in new ways.
This means that they can be a bit tricky to wrap your head around at first, but with a few tips and some patching, you can do cool stuff with them right away as shown by @Omri_Cohen in his fantastic live stream introduction: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MJyD2cVwst4
You can dive into the reference manuals and explore the designs from the ground up, or patch stuff up with an open mind and see what happens.
For starters, I wanted to share a few resources. Each module has a quickstart guide (or several):
And thorough reference documentation:
We will also be posting patch examples regularly, for example, our first one one shows how three of the modules can create a “waveterrain oscillator”:
Most importantly, we hope you have some fun with the plugins
