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...before you start adding other modules
• 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. 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 give you with a better idea of what features to look for in a module when you consider expanding your starting system. 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 a single module.
There are three different versions or "tiers" of the Eurorack Expansion course:
• Tier 1: The Essentials – This course, which is the least expensive version. It includes the Introduction and Core Concepts sections below, as well as the introductory movie for each of the six module type sections. Each movie has closed captioning to make it easier to follow along; downloadable transcripts will be added soon.
18 lessons, nearly 1.5 hours, $25.
At the bottom of the page is a list of lessons included in this version of the course; below are screen shots from some of the movies. In all versions, I demonstrate both what that type of module can do for you in general, as well as what that specific module will add to your toolkit.
