(Module developers, be sure to download the new Module Designer 2.2.3 from your library as well, and get the new Developer Kit 2.2.3 for all the latest documentation!)
... just sayin'. :wink:

They do indeed. And their kits covered a lot of ground, so this is awesome for 'cloners'.

Yup- expect free modules on VCV within a few weeks!

I'm testing VM right now and would like to use Sample & Hold to control the filter cutoff to bring some randomness in there. It works but the result doesn't sound very "smooth". I have a similar patch in Softube Modular and it sounds great there... I don't know what the problem is... With the S&H module I also use the white noise input (something I don't have to do in Softube). Is there a trick there? Maybe by using an LFO and S&H as a trigger?

one way is to add a slew e.g. from the store Andrew McCauley’s Slew Processor, but I’m sure you can build similar functionality using included modules.

How about CA's own Envelope Follower ?

With a carefully set gain and release ...

Not sure about the not sounding "smooth" issue, as S&H just sounds "stepped" in its basic form, unless some form of smoothing/gliding is internally or externally provided.

I'd just put a Glide module between the S&H output and the filter's freq.mod input
https://store.cherryaudio.com/modules/glide

If the goal is trying to imitate random voltage variations of analog gear, the filter's freq-mod amount knob is barely moved past zero, therefore some kind of attenuator module after the glide could be more precise for dialling-in the right amount.

I think the old S&H module from Cherry necessarily required an external noise source (or any other shape), but the updated module currently includes some internal noise source to pick up the samples from, although it still provides the ability to plug in an external signal.
This one I mean: https://store.cherryaudio.com/modules/sample-and-hold

But of course, glide ! I thought it was from another developer, hence not free ...

ah yes I was trying to think of that too. It’s effectively a CV portamento.

Something has to be done about the way the shop is set up, or something has to be done about the crap that NrGZR78 continues to spam it with. It’s out of hand and devalues the entire product.

They(CA) probably should have made the 'Designer' software free to all from the beginning. As the commercial licence is paid-for, it means they are under some obligation to promote modules made with it. Had it been free they could have relegated the sub-par stuff to the sidelines.

There's a thread on their forum where someone has suggested a 'hide these publishers' option which would work to an extent, but I raised the point that hiding them may not be enough because someone who was thinking of building a module of a certain type who isn't that familiar with VM may not bother if they see someone like Twathead69 has already built one like that, even if it functions abysmally.
