When I'm not drowning in my business responsibilities I love to compose using Modular Synthesis ❤️
:) Please enjoy:
The process of musical creation in modular synthesis is a bit hard to explain, not because the magic that evolves music, but because it's a mixture of electronic physics and music theories. Even so, I've notice that composing in modular system may be much faster than writing all the notes and expressions on a paper with sheet music, or making it directly to the DAW
I mean, since I learned to make music with modular synth, composing has never been so mind-blowing, fast, funny and efficient. It's like building this patch a few weeks ago, on the software VCV rack 2, took me about 3 hours. The next day I made just two live takes until I got the final recording.
The same song made with different tools could have taken me at least one full week...
That is possible because in modular systems, all the music comes from programmed electric signals that starts to flow as the device is plugged, and they will flow just as I programmed them. because of that, the music will be forever played by the system, with a touch of my hand.
The mix and master process in this case it's done while I design and play the song so I just need to spend time and mental effort to program the patch, once it's done, just hit record and let it playback alone, also I can play it myself for more fun hahaha
