This Berlin School video is exactly the sort of thing I was looking for. Awesome!

Great work Andrew!

I screwed up when I first ran VCV Rack on my Windows 10 PC. It asked for permission to write in the Documents folder and I answered no. Now VCV Rack can't install plugins. Tried a number of things in Windows, but still haven't found what is blocking VCV. Does anyone have an idea on how to fix this?

>It asked for permission

What did? I've never seen that dialog before.

Windows did. Part of some new protection feature for files in the Documents folder it would seem. Had never seen it before.

You can give it permission manualy by rightclicking the VCV icon->properties>security. Click on Edit and check the allow boxes.

Thanks. I checked that and Rack has full permissions for everything. I can even run it as administrator which should give it permission to do anything and it still is blocked from accessing the plugins directory. It is very strange.

Have tried a number of things. I believe that renaming the .exe file allows it to download the plugins, but then it can't read them. Never had anything like this happen with Windows before, so am guessing it has something to do with a recent Windows update. I am guessing that Windows put it on a black list somewhere, but I can't find it anywhere.

Looks like a big leap forward - hopefully for stability as well. Excite.

I have been keeping track on the dev logs and beta builds, this looks excellent. The multithreading mixed with polyphonic euro is just insanely cool. Plus there is just a ton of little fixes. The speed of which vcvrack is progressing is surprising, kind of reminds me when blender took off. The jack interface for us linux people is also a step forward.

I am seriously tempted to download this now based on how much I have enjoyed reading this thread.

One quick question about audio. Can anybody share their experience of including live audio in to be processed as an effects unit. I am about to buy an SH101 and it would be nice to plug in as an alternative to using Eurorack for processing.

Is it feasible to swap my Eurorack reverbs/freezes/Phonogene etc. for other modules and use vcv rack for those audio processing functions?

Please feel free to share your results from audio processing in vcv rack so I can set some realistic expectations for what I can produce.

You really need only a fast PC\Mac and good card with slow latency. And you will able to produce just anything with VCV Rack.

Newish MacBook Air and a Scarlett i/o should do the job surely?

I'm running it on a 13" Macbookpro 2018 + soundcraft signature12 but I must say I have a lot of audio drops. really looking forward to the 1.0

If you are using an USB 2 Audio interface, this could also be the problem:

Silent Way for VCV Rack is released. Might be of interest to those on this thread.

Chronoblob in vcvrack is pretty amazing. definitely a good way to learn about the module, it's much more advanced then a simple looper, is helping to figure out how it could work with my granular euro hw.
