you are challenged to make a patch in vcv rack to showcase creative use of modules, so other users may get inspired. you can also win eternal fame!
for this edition, the challenge is to make a patch that uses modules by docB from the dbRackModules and dbRackSequencer plugins. there is a lot in there (clock, sequencers, oscillators, lfos, reverb, various other things), so you’re spoilt for choice!
== rules ==
make a patch in vcv rack and upload your patch to patchstorage.com,
and/or in your reply to this thread
tag your upload with vcp-71
make a video showcasing your patch and upload it to youtube (if possible),
or record some audio and upload it to e.g. soundcloud
add a link to your video or audio as a comment to this post
give feedback on other participants’ patches
deadline: sunday end of the day, wherever you are, july 3rd
For the VCP-71 challenge I ended up only using 2 DocB modules (Pad and AddSynth). I didn’t create anything unique or different, but I got a lot of nice sounds, so I threw them all into a DAW and churned out a song in C Minor. There are 2 Pluck tracks, 3 pad tracks and a bass track (plus some white noise drums).
Well, it’s not possible to record video or audio, because my PC would explode. So it’s just for fun. If someone would like to download and play this patch, i have to tell you: this patch is heavy on the CPU. I was adding more and more stuff before it became impossible to play it without the whole vcv glitching. That’s why i decided to just stop. Otherwise it would be, probably, a bit fuller
I decided to restrict my patch to only using docB (apart from the audio interface, recorder, and FADE to start/stop with fade out). Rather than use any of the fancy sequencers, I opted to build my patch with primitive building blocks.
Thanks! Yeaah, the post-processing is a bit too much, but I like having everything on the screen and if i feel like this idea is good and i need to master it better, i record the stems and use Ableton… For this one i felt it would be better to have all the post-processing things there (cause i think that’s what challenge was about…)
