Introduction to the Modular Synthesis Simulator (VCV Rack)


Video tutorial is a preparation for the regular online monthly meetings, which will take place throughout the year..

VCV Rack Simulator is a great software tool for anyone who wants to learn about modular synthesis but doesn’t know where to start or has limited financial resources.

For the last Modul@rnica of this season, sound artist Ida Hiršenfelder has created a video tutorial to help you more easily start exploring modular synthesis with VCV Rack software. Besides that video serves as an introduction to the monthly VCV Rack meetings which are starting with a new year! The video with instructions and tips provides an easy introduction to this otherwise quite extensive software tool. For a smooth exploration of sound and different music structures, you need a computer with a minimum of 2.7 GHz processing power and a minimum of 8GB of RAM.

The video is in Slovene.
