Just for fun, I recently made a patch in VCV Rack that (sort of) recreates my DIY hardware modular setup. I thought some others might have fun with it too, so the patch can be downloaded from the Synth Patches page. The name “Phoenix” comes from the fact that the hardware version uses parts from a dead ESQ-1. The original hardware is mostly simple circuits, and this VCV version isn’t exactly the same. For example, the original lacks V/Oct scaling for CV inputs. I tried to find modules that were most similar to what’s in the hardware, and thanks to the Lunetta Modula stuff, that section is mostly spot-on. There are also some effects sends that mimic the setup I use in the mixer section. Here’s a demo video:

An attempt to recreate Slacker’s Melody Generator in VCV Rack. Since I couldn’t find a module that works like the 4051 as a demuxer,* I finagled a workaround of sorts that seems to provide similar audio results, at the cost of more complexity. In fact, there are really 2 finagled solutions here, one of which is the 4019/DAC combo, which could be removed for a more “pure” solution.

The patch can be found here, and comes with a text file that lists the modules used.

* Note: I’m not necessarily saying such a module doesn’t exist, just that I couldn’t find it if it does– feel free to get in touch if you know of one.

The audio in this one comes from a sample-mangling session done in Bespoke Synth, which was then brought into Bidule for further processing via hardware and software.

The video is footage from the game Ubermosh: Santicide, processed in Acid Cam.
