Neutron & BeatStep Pro & VCV Rack - First Patch

Published on Jan 15, 2019 Omri Cohen

Integration of software & hardware modular.

"So this is literally my first patch with the Neutron and BeatStep pro, combined with VCV Rack. I was still not so sure how to sync the BeatStep with VCV Rack, so what I've done is, I set the same BPM in both VCV Rack and on the BeatStep Pro, and sent the Start trigger via MIDI from the BeatStep to trigger the Reset function on the clock module I've used in VCV Rack, Clocked from Impromptu Modular. So every time I started the sequence, Clocked would reset and since both Clocked and the BeatStep are set to the same BPM, both sequences were in sync. This is, of course, not the ideal way of doing this, and I hope to record soon a proper video on how to sync VCV Rack with the BeatStep Pro. Anyway, the BeatStep is sending CV to the Neutron, controlling the pitch of both oscillators separately and triggering its envelope, and the velocity function is modulating the cutoff point of the filter. The Neutron is going directly to my DAW, which is Reaper, and the different voices from VCV Rack are also being sent to Reaper, each voice to its own track. I use also the Midilar to control a few modules in VCV Rack, having hands-on experience also in this department."
