A workshop from EMF 2018 by Iain Sharp

On Sunday September 2, 2018 at in Workshop 1

In recent years there has been massive renewed interest in electronic modular synthesizers among enthusiasts who want to get back to the roots of electronic music and enjoy their creative freedom and opportunities for experimentation. However, beginners are often prevented from getting started with modular synths by their costs and apparent complexity. This workshop will be a hands-on introduction to making interesting sounds from modular synthesizers for complete beginners. We will use the open source simulated modular synthesizer "VCV Rack" to allow the participants to get the feel of working with a real modular synthesizer on their computer.
