VM2500 Walk-through

video by boxoftextures

"Cherry Audio recently released their VM2500 Collection, basically recreations of the ARP 2500 series of modules and I had to immediately purchase a set. This is more of a deep dive than my more usual synth demos, both because there are a lot of modules in the set, although I only cover some of them, but also because with modular systems there's simply a huge amount of options available in how you set everything up. Which is the basic idea of course. In this video I walk you through a number of different patches, going over these particular modules and how I used them but also getting into general modular principles. I'm assuming at least some prior knowledge of how synthesis works as this isn't really a Beginning Modular Synthesis course, although I've thought of doing a series along those lines to be honest, but even if you're a beginner you should at least be able to get an idea of what I'm aiming for.

The patches I make here include just a basic does-this-make-noise patch, then a "typical" synth patch, although it feels to me like a typical '70s ARP sound. I follow those up with two sequencer-driven patches and then a self-playing generative type of patch. Kind of a wide range there.
