In this week's episode of Sunday Night Synthesis, the series returns from hiatus highlighting a very interesting piece of software that models Eurorack modular synthesizer components, called VCV Rack. Lawrence W. Moore introduces the software and some of its basic plugins and modules, including those from the Core set, Fundamental set, and Befaco set. Al of the plugins used in this video are free downloads.
VCV Rack is a great learning tool for analog modular synthesis, and does provide a pretty decent set of tools for building some great sounding synthesizers. You just need to know what you're doing. Viewers are invited to leave comments as to whether or not they would like to see more videos on VCV Rack, either tutorial videos or videos on building some instruments in the software.
The latest news from LWM Music is the website update and some fixes/updates that have been made to the YouTube channel. This inaugural video explains the updates and the reorganization of the website. Dr. Lawrence W. Moore hopes that viewers and subscribers enjoy the new look and find it easy to navigate.
Now that the website will be easier to maintain, videos will be produced with more frequency. Sunday Night Synthesis will continue to be a potpourri of synthesis topics, but will no longer be used for announcements. The new series, LWM Music News will be used for that.
As always, Dr. Lawrence W. Moore is open to requested topics and ideas for future videos.
