Click on popularity and the number of downloads becomes a guide or a sort of rating system. Go from there.

Only problem is the paid modules don't show the number of downloads.

ZZC Phaseque sequencer is my favorite sequencer.

its a buchla marf, a rossum control forge, a bit of o and c and a bit of elektron.
One of the finest sequencers i have used in any format.

Monome grids, earthsea, Meadowphysics and so on VCV rack ports are also a favourite of mine.

Looks like all of the VCV brand ones are on the sale and a few of the other paid ones, but it doesn't appear that all of the paid ones are on sale. None the less I picked up VCV Chords and Host. Thanks for the great software!

VCV Rack Manual Module

There's a free Rack module called "computerscare Custom Blank" that displays pics in your rack. I've been trying to learn the "macro osc 2" module from Audible Instruments, so I made a handy jpg that shows the names of the controls for each mode.

To load the jpg put the Custom Blank module in your rack
Image

Right-Click on the module and select "Load Image" and load the Macro-Osc-2.jpg file
Image

Drag the right hand corner of the module to stretch it out to the size you want
Image

Image

Here's 2 more Module Manuals for the Macro 1 Osc (Braids) I had to break it up into 2 pics (Macro 1 A & Macro 1 B) what a monster of a module.

Here's a Module Manual for the Segment Generator (Stages).

I didn't know about "computerscare" -- great idea to use it for notes about modules. And thanks for sharing your guide to "macro osc 2"!

Various VCV news:

The new VCV Library is released, allowing you to browse individual modules and add them to your VCV account.

You can now discover virtual ports of Eurorack modules by clicking the "Available for VCV Rack" link on certain ModularGrid pages. Example: Alright Devices Chronoblob 2 on ModularGrid

For information about the upcoming Rack v2 and Rack for DAWs, follow the Rack development blog for the most up-to-date news. VCV Rack for DAWs will be a new product closely following the versions of VCV Rack as they are released. It will be initially be available for as a 64-bit VST2 effect and instrument plugin. VST3/AU/AAX will be considered for future releases.

VCV Chords now supports an unlimited number of chords, so you can use it to drive your patch's chord progression, no matter how complex.

VCV Host, the VST plugin host for Rack, now has trigger inputs for playing percussion VST plugins.

Hi Vortico/otehr VCVheads


I've been messing around with audible instruments stuff on VCV rack and love the idea you can potentially explore the funcionality of something in software before buying in real life.

I am wondering if VCV rack has ever approached Doepfer about making digital recreations of their modules? I'm assuming there's all sorts of copyright issues with such a proposition - but just curious - especially about some of their more unique utility modules/exotic filters

At this time I can neither confirm nor deny that we are working with Doepfer to create virtual VCV clones.
