Do you already have a small modular or semi-modular synth and wondering what you should get next and how to get the most out of it? Are you tired wasting time and money on the wrong modules? Then this course was designed for you – particularly if you’ve already watched my Learning Modular Synthesis Level 1
or Moog Mother-32
courses. It demonstrates what each type of module will add to your sonic toolkit. In it, I:
• show how I will be displaying audio, control voltages, and harmonic spectra as well as the color-coding for patch cables in this course
• demonstrate what I consider to be the main utility or “glue” modules you should consider for any system, including mixers, VCAs, and more.
• introduce you to six major categories of modules to consider when expanding your system: oscillators, filters, other sound modifiers, modulation sources, level control modules, and modular effects, plus a bonus section on multi-function modules. For each module, I demonstrate how to patch it into your system, as well as how to put it to work to create new sounds.
This course will empower you with a better idea what features to look for in a module, which ones might create the sounds you’re looking for, and how to make good use of them once they’re in your system. Virtually all of these movies are based around a small modular starter system (click here for more details
), and focus on what possibilities will open up to you as a result of adding that single module to your system.
There are three different versions or "tiers" of the Eurorack Expansion course:
