What Do You Get in the Basic VCV Rack Modular Synth?

There are also a total of 33 modules in the free product. These include modules such as sequencer, mixer, oscillators, etc. It is also possible to download many more free modules from the VCV Rack modular synth website.

What Are The Drawbacks of This Software?

The biggest drawback of VCV rack is the amount of RAM that it requires to run. You will need a good amount of RAM if you are expecting to use it in your computer. Having 4GB, 8GB or even 16 GB could be too little. However, this all depends on the number of modules ou have running. Therefore, if you have more modules, you need more RAM.

What is Module Synthesis?

Basically, modular synth is playing with basic sounds in order to create something different. It is normally very expensive to purchase hardware modules. Therefore, this is a perfect opportunity for you to learn more about modular synthesis if that interests you.

Who Uses Modular Synthesis Anyway?

There are various EDM producers who use modular synthesis. Such people include the likes of Deadmau5, Jean Michel Jarre and others. It is a highly respected way to make music because of the difference you can make. Therefore, it is important to be a pioneer. Too many people want to be like Armin Van Buuren, or like Martin Garrix for example. However, what is wrong with being like you? What is wrong with being different? A different sound in your music can also have other aspiring producers who want to be like you. Wouldn’t that be cool?
