      If you’re the noodly type, or just looking for new ways to make sounds, I highly recommend a go at this:

      https://vcvrack.com/

      It’s open source, free, and incredible. The most fun I’ve ever had with a soft synth. And I was getting some very interesting sounds that I was able to record in the DAW.

      Go nuts on it, you won’t be sorry.

      Second this! A great introduction to anyone interested in the modular world, or looking for unique sound design exploration.

      A rabbit hole for sure.

      I’m starting my physical modular because of this app.

      Starting with a Waldorf Wavetable generator & a Rossum Morpheus z-plane filter. Those and some basic LFO’s, mixers, mults, and generators, and I’m happy for awhile.

      The combos and potential for unique sounds are insane.

      Listen for yourself:

      Morpheus (so….good)

        Morpheus is definitely on my list too! Incredible sounding unit.

        I’m making do with my Lifeforms SV-1 for now, but there’s quite a few semi-modular synths that are tickling my fancy too.

        Check out Expert Sleepers series if you haven’t yet! It’s the bridge between real-world eurorack, and the virtual.

      So you would recommend your SV-1? I’m trying to decide whether to build out full custom, or to get a good starter like the sv1 and then just add to it. That one seems like a good balance of all things, and I already have a Moog Sub 37, so I’m not really interested in the mother 32 at the moment. I feel like I have the Moog Osc’s covered.

        It depends on what you’re looking to get out of it. In my experience, the SV-1 isn’t great at tracking. So if you’re looking at programming patterns that span octaves, expect to do a fair amount pitch correction.

        I bought it for the same reasons you mentioned, to be my starting point for the eurorack world. I’ll be catering the rest of my future purchases to sound manipulation, rather than a synth voice set up.

        In terms of the breadth of sounds you can discover, the SV-1 has me covered for now, but Plankton Electronics Ants! or the 0-coast are pretty versatile, and I would most likely check those out over the Mother if you have your Moog sound covered. These two can’t be rack mounted though, whereas the SV-1 can.

        Different strokes.

      Live will be the top answer, generally, then cubase and logic. I mainly use studio one, but also bitwig. And yes I don’t think there are a ton of reason users out there, although there are a few.

      This look pretty intresting I might give it a try. Have you tried Reaktor as well?

      I have, yes. Reaktor can do amazing things. This one is a bit different, in that it attempts to stay 100% in the realm of emulating a hardware modular. They’ve really executed it well.

      Only gripe is that it isn’t a pure vst, but it wasn’t hard to route it back to my daw
