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:

The audio in this one comes from Loid (hardware Lunetta-style modular) being processed through various things in the Bespoke Synth modular DAW.

The video is footage of my wife and I playing Dead or Alive 6, glitched beyond recognition with Acid Cam.

The main sound source in this one is the recently-released Particul (Reaktor ensemble), with plenty of effects, of course. Loid (my Lunetta-style modular setup) is also present, along with some hardware effects and feedback loops.

The video is an OBS capture of Id’s classic Quake FPS (running in the quakespasm engine), glitched out beyond recognition with Acid Cam. Here’s a screenshot showing the settings used to process the video:
