Here’s what this clip is about: Going modular is a lot of fun but can get very expensive, very fast. But there’s a way put together a hybrid modular synth in a gradual, focused way, by only getting the modules you need in hardware form, and integrating others using software.
After experimenting a lot with creating a hybrid VCV/Eurorack – I can say it works really nicely. If anyone asks me what’s my one must have Eurorack module, it’s definitely one which will let you bridge between virtual modules and real ones.
In this video I review the ES-8 from Expert Sleepers and the 8A from MOTU, check out their pros and cons, and how well they integrate with virtual eurorack from VCV, Softube and other software.
NOTE: If you’re going to use a DC Coupled interface use a floating ring TRS cable and not the one show in the video
