VCV LIVE streaming - jaynothin

(jaynothin) #1

Not sure if this is the right place to post that I am streaming live.

You can listen at:

I’m starting the stream playing an old patch, but I may also try something from scratch after the “performance” or whatever you wanna call it.

See you there.



There’s got to be a better way of knowing when other people in the community are streaming. Like a portal on the front page of the vcvrack site? I suppose that wouldn’t work for people who only stream VCV occasionally but for Jay and myself, who only stream VCV, it would be okay.

Cool to see you here Jay! I hope to catch the next live stream :slight_smile:

I can put the dates in News of the Rack, just tell me until sunday noon

(jaynothin) #8

Not sure what you mean exactly?

(Norbert Denninger) #9

ok, News of the Rack is a weekly pdf Newspaper about all important things concerning VCV-Rack which happend the past week and if I have dates of coming things I can announce them, I begin working on a new issues every sunday at noon and it will be finished and uploades here, in the facebook group and on github about midnight

Oh, I didn’t know that. Well, I don’t have dates really. I only stream randomly, on twitch. Often, but randomly if I am not busy.

I announce it 40-50% of the time, and if anyone catches it I’m more than happy like that. This is bad behavior in the world of “scheduled media” I know, I know. I’m sorta “devoided” of ambitions, if I may say it that way. :stuck_out_tongue:

So I guess I might not fit in a “weekly” newspaper, sorry about that.

The thing of it is, I play VCV whenever I feel the need, (happens a lot :wink: ), and I just happened to stream it all along. Why not right?? :slight_smile:

I’m trying to get more “disciplined”, or if you will, looking for more “structures” in my very own chaos of mine, but in this field I’m a slow learner, very slow. :smiley:

ok, I see, maybe I can mention your channel and tell the folks to look there occasionally :metal::sunglasses:

(jaynothin) #12

Oh that would be very nice of you. Thanks a lot. :+1:

So where can I find this News Of The Rack?

(Norbert Denninger) #13

No problem, it’s a pleasure. I post it here and in the facebook group and all past issues are also in my github repository

Bliffton1, (mscHack), asked me to restream a patch so he could hear it LIVE. So I did a 24 min+ stream of Frost, (name of the patch). I am quite happy with the result except for 2-3 audio gltiches. It would seem that I can’t escape the glitch curse, but at least I have it under control (yeah right).

If you like oldies, 80’s, ambient, music film like Blade Runner, Antarctica or dare I say “Vangelish” type of music, you might like this piece.

No generative processes or techniques were harmed in the making of this patch :stuck_out_tongue: unless a good dose of Bernoulli gates is considered “generative”.

Anyway enough rambling about, here’s the 24 min long result:

Is it possible to mix together, a modular synth, a funky groove, a spooky music atmosphere, in a jazzy feel and use only the click of a mouse to perform live?

For those who missed and would like to watch a highlight of my latest LIVE stream, where I attempted to answer such a question in this 3 hour long video.

Too long? Jump in any part, you might enjoy it. You can lower the resolution of the video if you have a low bandwidth.

I hope you enjoy.

“Look mom! I made my first module.”

Well it’s just a “blank” panel, but I had to start somewhere right? :alien:

I used GECO from Hora-Music, Inkscape and GIMP.

Being a neophyte in coding and even using GECO for “people that has never code a line of code”, it gave me a serious headache (literally).

And when it came to the part of “building” makefile? I had to ask bliffton1 (mscHack) because I was totally lost :scream:

Here’s a look of the blank panel.


Jeez, now you’re making me feel guilty for not doing my own modules!

(jaynothin) #23

Well, correct me if I’m mistaking, but you do know how to code right?? So why not give it a shot? :smiley:


because i tried setting up the build environment and got stuck about a year ago and now i’m scared to mess things up

(jaynothin) #25

Well, no matter how we’re scared, no matter how we try to hold on, no matter how it goes, someday, somehow, somewhere, something is gonna give, and it’s gonna break and be a big mess. And we’ll start all over again.

Might as well be you who make the mess so to start on you own will. :wink:

Hahaha. :stuck_out_tongue:

(jaynothin) #26

This was made 8 months ago for the “Vult giveaway contest”. Still worth a listen.

I should try and play again with that patch. Or make something similar again.

LIVE now, in fact I’ve been streaming for 2+ hours. As undisciplined as I could ever be, I forgot to mentioned it.
