I can answer for the Drift Pack: It does not have module presets, since I didn't think those would make much sense for modules like this (maybe I'll come up with something later). But, you can download full VM presets that showcase the modules in action! The link is on the product page in VM store.

Are there presets for the nekomatic 6 Pads Chord Bundle? I got the demo, but don't see any…?

Although, as a general thing, the sound quality of VM is somewhat lacking imo. Softube Modular has a better sound quality.
...and a CPU penalty to match it. I believe the main difference is in oversampling, that - AFAIK - VM doesn't do. It would actually be a good idea for VM devs to perhaps add an option to enable oversampling if someone just wants to bounce the patch (or has a CPU power to spare)?

I would surely welcome quality settings with an added HQ mode. Than everybody can decide on their own what quality and cpu hit they are comfortable with.

So it would seem. Just changing the VCA to the MRB VCA already gives more oumph.

(It's just that this product is such a rabbithole).

Just installed the freebie, looks good, none of the modules will download though. Anyone else having problems?
Maybe their server is getting hammered. :smack:
I'll try again tomorrow.

EDIT: Now it's working. :party:

Do I really want to go down this rabbit hole? Why am I even asking you guys? It is like asking my Shelties if I really want to make some bacon or open a package of cheese.

What does VM offer that is not offered by Reaktor and Softube Modular? What makes it unique?

Got it. I have Softube and Reaktor already. So I am kinda sorta looking for a good reason to buy into VM. I suppose “it looks fun” is good enough.

KVR friends,

First, we'd like to welcome the thousands of new Voltage Modular users who have joined us since we launched our Year One celebration! Welcome aboard, we're thrilled to have you all with us!

Image

We're celebrating Voltage Modular's one-year anniversary by offering some amazing deals, slashing prices by 50% or more on Cherry Audio products, and many of our 3rd-party module manufacturers have joined in to offer some incredible offers. You can read about these fantastic offers here: https://cherryaudio.com/year-one-celebration. These offers end August 31st, so hurry!

Our most exciting offer of all is the new Voltage Modular Nucleus package. Nucleus contains 22 modules and is 100% completely FREE until the end of August! There's never been a better way to learn about modular synthesis and to explore sound creation, and it won't cost you a dime.

Our Nucleus offer has gone viral, so we're adding over 40 new presets to the Nucleus package to show off what can be done with this fantastic collection of modules. The next time you run Voltage Modular, these new presets will be automatically downloaded into your software. Check out some of our favorite new presets: Funeral for a Pal, Throbbing Bass, Mirror Echo Horrors!, Ghost Lullaby, and dozens more. (If you own Ignite or Core, these presets are being added to your library as well!)

If you're new to modular synthesis, the folks at Computer Music Magazine have created a short tutorial video and article to get you up and patching with Nucleus: https://www.musicradar.com/how-to/how-t ... ge-modular. For a deeper dive into modular synthesis, Venus Theory has created this fantastic new tutorial video on the fundamentals of patching with Voltage Modular: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQ5i-AtvYj0.

Cherry Audio also has some great tutorial videos to get you started. These entertaining and in-depth videos are a fantastic tool for learning how to patch modules, and use envelopes and LFOs, to create fantastic sounds with Voltage Modular:
Professional audio engineer Mark Barton has had a storied career creating hardware synthesizer modules and cutting-edge audio software technology. He's written a new article entitled Why Modern Digital Synthesis is More Analog than Analog which busts some of the myths and misconceptions surrounding digital audio. Check it out here: https://cherryaudio.com/news/2019-08-20 ... ark-barton.

MRB has decided to join in our Year One Anniversary Celebration by adding two new modules to their MRB Laboratory Bundle: the Laboratory Voice and the Laboratory Semi-Modular Voice. These modules put a complete 3-oscillator synthesizer voice into your rack, complete with complex filtering, distortion, and a ton of patch points. The MRB Laboratory Bundle is now on sale for only $79 during the Year One celebration! Learn more here: https://store.cherryaudio.com/bundles/m ... ory-bundle

"Hugely impressive." "Sounds fantastic." "Best Software Modular Synthesizer, 2018" "One of the Top 5 Software Synthesizers of 2018." In the last year, the critics have had a lot to say about Voltage Modular! Here are some of our favorite magazine and web reviews from the last year: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_W56xDzsBYc.

Finally, we've released Voltage Modular 1.3.16, which fixes a memory leak that can occur when hosting plug-ins inside of Voltage Modular. Next time you run Voltage Modular, it'll pick up the update, or you can download it now from your library at https://store.cherryaudio.com/my/library.

We'd love to know what you think of Voltage Modular! Post here on KVR, visit our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/voltagemodular/), or join us in our forums (https://forums.cherryaudio.com/) to share your thoughts on Voltage Modular, ask the community questions, share your presets, learn new tips and tricks, or just get to know other Voltage Modular users!

Don't have Softube, but LOVE Reaktor, and Reason, and VCV, and MSF/MXXX, and… here's MORE of that kinda good stuff, at the right price; reason enough for me:)

(Am I in this game to see how FEW cool tools I can get away with? NO. I'm in it as much to keep track of whatever ELSE today's amazing music'n'sound tool makers can come up with, as to enjoy using them.)

I was so impressed with the freebie.. I immediately dropped $65 bucks to pick up both the Voltage Modular Core + Electro Drums and The Drift Pack bundles (both on sale for $50 and $15 respectively). Which gave me nearly 100 more modules over the starter freebies.

And, I'm really proud of myself for figuring out how to patch a mono legato glide. Nothing is terribly obvious with a modular setup like this.. but that was particularly tricky (for me anyways).

I think I'm good on modules for a while.. at least, that's what I'll keep trying to tell myself.

ooOo... a TB Filter & OSC. hmmm... :party:
