VCV Rack


Ana­logue syn­the­sis­ers are re­spon­si­ble for some of the most iconic and strange mu­sic of the past 50 years, but they’re pretty hard to get started with, both from a com­plex­ity and cost per­spec­tive. VCV Rack changes at least the se­cond part of that equa­tion: it’s a free sim­u­la­tion of a whole rack of syn­the­siser com­po­nents, which you’re en­cour­aged to wire up and twid­dle with ex­actly as you wish.

VCV Rack’s com­mu­nity is per­haps its finest as­set, as synth en­thu­si­asts have put to­gether a host of free mod­ules em­u­lat­ing real-world hard­ware, all avail­able through the app it­self. What’s more, while there are plenty of spe­cific Rack tu­to­ri­als on­line, VCV’s em­u­la­tion of proper com­po­nents means you can fol­low just about any guide to ana­logue syn­the­sis­ers to get started. En­joy mak­ing beep and bloops, but be care­ful of your speak­ers – things might get rough…
