virtual modular system

Hello Richard Devine ,

thanks for being here , sharing with us .

I would like to know if you think that it could be possible to re create some kind of your entire hardware modular system in the box today .

With the evolution of reaktor and the release of softube modular for example , which could be the best way to re create with software and be able to access entire functionalities with midi controller and / or touchscreen pc like in real life .

Thanks for your vision of sound and music .

Keep on the nice work !

Thank you very much for the message here. I honestly think sonically you could get something close with Reaktor and Softube, however I think you will still lack the instant physical interaction even when using a midi controller/touch screen PC setup. I have used both Reaktor and Softube with multiple controllers and a Microsoft Surface Book touch screen, but still feel a disconnect in comparison to using the real thing. I feel you can still get faster results with the hardware in that you can make dozens of adjustments, and tweaks in a matter of seconds over the software.

You can also use stackable cables, and create feedback chains, which can also be done in the software but takes much longer to setup. I got back into using modulars because I was tired of looking at the screen after 14 hour days, and needed to take a break. Working hands on with modular has been very therapeutic for me in many ways, in that I just use my hands and listen. I feel when working with my computer I often make decisions based on what I see rather then what I am hearing. I feel it can be deceiving at times, because you should always be using your ears :-)
