Getting Confident In VCV Rack 2

Taught by: Phelan Kane

In this workshop you will dive deeper into building your own virtual eurorack synthesizers via VCV Rack 2. This free app is an amazing playground to explore creative sound design and synthesis and you will explore sequencing, quantizing, multi oscillator patches, analogue FM and polyphony. This workshop aims to provide you with suitable skills to further develop your own SW modular synthesis instruments in the VCV Rack 2 environment.
