Huzzah! was hoping there would more VCPs to come, also I thought of starting one but never got round to it!
Here I could again experimentation is a coming!
Can you use Shapemaster on Sampler? Gonna go find out!
so here is my entry:
I used the ShapeMaster Pro here and some Vult paid modules (Freak and Knock).
Also I used Colors from Kinotone, that was a free beta download, but seems not to be available atm.
Maybe you can use this site: https://vcvtools.glitch.me/ to replace the paid for/missing modules.
Sorry for any inconvenience.
I definitely see tremendous potential with the module, and am confident there are many things possible that I would not even dream of.
It reminds me very much of some of the features within Vital. I am amazed at the speed with which someone like Dash Glitch performs wizardry with Vital, and suspect similar things could be done with ShapeMaster.
But for whatever reason, the process leaves me cold when faced with the prospect of actually creating/manipulating/employing my own shapes. Before I discovered VCV, I dabbled a fair amount with Vital, but mostly by tweaking/expanding existing presets. Once I discovered VCV, I pretty much abandoned Vital.
I had hoped that this challenge would spur me to actually dive in and create my own shapes. But it hasn’t worked
If so, you should try probably ShapeMaster out - it gives you precise control of voltage over time, which is what modular is all about
I totally get it that no module is for everyone, and that’s fine, but on a personal level I’d love to see what you could do with it as you get so deep into modules and really understand them.
I think my favourite use for it is as a sequencer as it is so flexible and allows you to easily create sequences that would be hard to do by any other means - different timings within the sequence, and precise control over expression and glides between notes for example. I’ve posted this video by Jakub a few times but it’s def worth a watch if you haven’t seen it (as is the rest of his series on ShapeMaster).
