TC's VCV Jams

I’ve been having a blast learning VCV over the last month or so. I’ve been going over lots of YouTube tutorials and have taken to just recording everything I do. This started out as a live performance based on this tutorial from Modular Curiosity: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ke5IdqngYzo&t=10s

I added a bassline I wrote on a Pittsburgh Modular SV-1, and used Ableton to add an electric piano and a vocal sample at the end, and some general processing and EQing. It’s the first real track I’ve finished in many years. I don’t think I could have produced something like this without VCV, it’s really a remarkable creative tool and it boggles my mind that it’s free.

I was stuck at home today while my car was getting fixed, so I threw this together. I was going through this tutorial from Omri Cohen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cv4N_6qRAK8 and used a similar patch to create a six-minute jam, playing with the LFOs and Rampage and mixing the voices and some effects in and out. Put the recording in Ableton, added a simple bassline, electric piano chord progression, and stole an old (public domain) lyric and used a robot voice generator website to create the vocal. First time ever starting and completing a song in a day!

A happier song, made with the Modular Thing Turing Machine cranking out interesting melodies.

Tried putting together a techno banger based on this patch from VCV Rack Ideas:

The dynamic range gets a little bit out of control, but I still had a lot of fun making it. Part of me wishes I had some more flexibility in going back and editing stuff like this to make it sound more “professional,” but another part of me appreciates the fact that it is what it is.
