It's interesting to learn how to use synthesis and what Mutable Instruments and Befaco modules can do. But it doesn't replace the real deal for me.

ah, the immediate response about the "real deal" vs what? non-real?

amazing tools for noisy textures & crunchy soundfuck, i see no problem. also might learn something.

Sorry, maybe I wasn't clear enough. Vcv rack is definitely amazing and an incredible tool, both to create music with and to learn modular synthesis.

I meant that it can't replace the real deal for me as I need to turn knobs and press keys, flip switches, patch cables, etc, as I don't like creating music with a computer. I need the hands-on, physicality of the instrument to enjoy creating music and feel like I play something. But it's definitely one of the most interesting piece of musical software I had the pleasure to tinker with.

no problem!

but for me its been a huge step forward for my exploration of insect electronix... my main interest for ca.5 years now....

i been exploring "real" modular AT LAST recently, never could afford any... but now i have temporary access to a huge eurorack system. i understand it's "better" than software. anyway, vcvrack is the best thing in and for a long time, and i'm waiting to hear what noiseheads cook up with it... not just stinky ambient pads and kraut arpeggios, but fucked up crackles, crunches and insect rainforest stuff

I think it's entirely doable with VCVRack with the equivalent of Braids and Clouds. I haven't used it in a long time but I wonder if they also implemented the codes for the Easter Egg modes in the MI modules? Parasites on Clouds and the Ominous Voice on Elements are amazing.

It's ridiculous how much of a time-sink VCV Rack can be:  I have so many saved patches that are simply studies of modular concepts or simply explorations of different module types.  It gets really rad when you start to hybridize between that and hardware as well (I'm only just beginning with eurorack, myself, but one of my first priorities was to acquire an appropriate interface to get everything talking... too early for the ES-9, though), but even just as something to include in a signal chain for effects, dynamics, or different mixing strategies, it's just fantastic.  I feel a little guilty sometimes using Bitwig, now that it has its own approach to modular, but I figure that VCV's always there to fill in the gaps; VCV's still the best way to figure out eurorack hardware though--in terms of what modules to get and their general usage, particularly since it's sometimes used to showcase modules which are available as hardware.

I'm thinking I might have to buckle down and do a whole album with mostly VCV shit, but for now, I've just been using it for one-offs and studies.  I think, though, I might want a 16n Faderbank or some Midilar modules before undertaking something like that.
