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!
since this is edition 42, i wanted to do a relevant theme: question and answer
i’m sure many people will get the reference… how you interpret the theme is up to you (using delay, sampling, or something less literal). the phenomenon has a long history in music, in a variety of genres. i’m looking forward to seeing and hearing what you come up with!

Oh yes, I already have a few ideas, maybe I put also a towel in it!
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm… I’m think there is only one answer …
VCP-42 Answer for Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything
Today I presents my entry for VCP-42 and … Thanks to Omri Cohen for tutorial about Damian Lillard module from Frozen Wasteland it was very helpfull for my patch today. Thanks Omri. I didn’t think too much and too long about building my patch. The answer and question are contained within. Cheers, ladies and gentlemen.
VCP-42 Answer for ultimate question about universe life and everyting.vcv (62.5 KB)
I’ve been working on a patch lately that fits this challenge, I am quite new to the program and my graphics card isn’t up for the task of recording video just yet, but that will change soon For now, here is a still picture of the active patch with the first export I tried with it. Enjoy!
I finally noticed that the REC module records video, so I whipped this up. I wish I could have incorporated a HHG reference now! I’ll just pretend the drone was meant to be a moaning android.
Here’s my entry for VCP-42. The patch started out as an experiment with low pass gates after reading about them in Patch & Tweak. Then I saw Omri messing around with Luppolo this morning and …

My gawd x 3:
- I managed to record my screen (had a lot of issues with vcv-recorder, no matter what settings it always just glitched… thanks to someone who somewhere here pointed me to OBS – the search work, use it ).
- I made my patch in time (still working on that last challenge - no reverb / delay…).
- And I like the way it sounds.

My VCP patch, without using a clock! Yeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaahhh!
@chribbe Magnifique. Erittäin mukava ilmapiiri … (google translate)
@TimmyC J’apprécie quand la musique est vivante. Bravo
@down_of_hares Très belle construction harmonique, with a conversation (very nice harmonic construction)
Beauty of a soundscape, really, but don’t really fit the challenge IMHO! But it’s a nice patch. May I suggest you to use the Nysthi’s recorder to take the audio to prevent audio glitches…?
Thanks, & you´re right. I did interpret the challenge very freely and strayed far from the more common understanding of Q & A in music.
Does Nysthi record video as well, I just used it for audio, or did you mean to screen record w/o sound + edit in the Nysthi audio afterwards?
No, I’m affraid it doesn’t. Personally, I use OBS for image and master recorder 2 from Nysthi for the audio and then edit and synchronize with a Simple video editor (premiere element in my case, but there are surely plenty of freeware available). The VCV recorder has improved its performance but a high end computer seems to be still required to record a medium large patch, so to say!
Just jumping in to tell there is Shotcut if you are looking for one
It’s available on Windows Mac and Linux
It’s rather simple but gets the work done, i use it a lot for my channel
which is totally fine. i intentionally left the interpretation of the theme wide open.
I was a little worried there for a second. My patch only loosely follows the theme. Or general musical sense.
