Some people, like me, have never sat foot in a modular synth before having Caustic in their hands.
One of the ways to understand what the mod synth does, is to load a preset and take a screen shot. Then, flip it around and take a screen shot of the wires too.
Then, load a new modular synth on its own, look at your screen shots, imitate the wire setup, put some notes into the sequencer and turn the knobs, play with it.
One sunny day, you (and I) will be find it quite natural to use the modular synth - to really want to use it.
It is fantastic tool, especially when a major Rewire or blending of synths and modules are needed. There is alot that can be accomplished through and with ModularSynth.
Or you can go big and go Builderz Pro.... The modular can do some really amazing things if you think outside the box....
Britt has the right idea. Grab presets and learn how they are built. A good starting point is to get my Caustic 3 Essentials big Demo, there are many modular presets there as well as basic OSC models set up to get you started...
With all due respect, Jason, "going big" before you understand why it is big, is like buying a fake diploma online instead of getting a solid education.
In reference to expanding the modular via Master/Slave methods, or chaining several modulars together to make a super sized preset beyond the limoted amount of module slots available.... Using presets alresdy available as you stated....
Forgive me if I misunderstood your intentions here, ma'am...
Apology accepted, Jason.
I felt that you hijacked my thread a little, but I understand; Marketing strategy, ads - you see them everywhere on the net. First they steal attention, but soon you don´t notice them at all.
Be careful about that!
Oh no sorry Britt! That wasnt my intention at all.... Nah it wasnt a marketing gimmick either, just showing examples that can be easily and freely had; no hijack intended ma'am
Me, too, Britt. I have been fortunate enough to have played a few top notch synths but never got to patch and learn about Modulars until Caustic.
What a great thing Rej has built; we would have had to spend thousands of dollars to build a set up like this, I know I wouldn't have had the confidence or knowledge to know what to get and would have never been able to be as creative with sounds as I am now.
To add something constructive; I think learning how to dial envelopes is the best place to start learning because in the modular envelopes can be plugged in to many a 'mod' and give the builder mucho options for sculpting.
No hard feelings, Jason, I just speak my mind - and I want you to succeed and make a good living! That´s why I think you should think twice about where and when you post Builderz stuff.
You know, you make such good stuff!
Yep, I know Ian, you are right about theat! :)
