Way back in the days of Windows 95, there was a little program called Sound Raider that crawled your hard drive looking for .wav files, and played them at random speeds in 4 different channels. This program has long since disappeared, and wouldn’t work on modern systems anyway for various reasons, security issues among them. This is an attempt to recreate the functionality as much as possible with VCV, and includes some added features as well.

The patch uses 4 Voxglitch Wav Bank modules, each triggered from a clock divider that can be clocked from either the first LFO, a dedicated LFO, or a random source. The patch and the samples used in the demo can be downloaded from the Patches page.

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.

Just for fun, a “3 Module Challenge” patch using Bogaudio’s Mix 4, Vult’s Lateralus filter (free version), and the VCV Delay module. The patch can be downloaded from the usual place.

I’ve been uploading stuff to patchstorage.com, starting with my VCV Rack patches. I’ve also started adding Reaktor stuff, and in the process have made a demo video for Loid’s Cousin. The others will follow in the near future.
