These tutorials are slightly out of date. They were used mainly during the beta testing phase but still have some relevance. Just be aware that some modules may have changed since they were written. Also critically the Melody Sequencer was not available at the time.
These are detailed step-by-step guides that you can follow at your own pace.
The patches themselves aren’t particularly impressive sounding as the focus is on introducing the concepts of LSSP rather than showing off what Voltage Modular is capable of.
But Nucleus isn’t powerful enough to explore more advanced LSSP functions so the assumption for some tutorials is that you have the Core bundle of modules.
Some tutorials will also touch on LSSP modules that aren’t included in the LSSP 101 bundle.
This tutorial introduces the notion of Time Splitting and explains how to chain two CV Sequencers together to form a 32 step sequencer.
In this tutorial we build a 64 step real-time CV recording device that you can use to record and play back keyboard input. It reinforces some of the V/Bar concepts already covered and shows how to use the CV Sequencer’s record function.
In this tutorial we improve the CV recording device built in Tutorial 3. The Rhythm Sequencer module is introduced to help add a flexible metronome and we look at how Song Part sequencing can be used to add a count-in mechanism.
Here we expand on the patch from Tutorial 5 adding stacked chords, a more sophisticated rhythm and a simple drone.
In this tutorial we begin the creation of our first primitive song. We build the basic architecture and get a piano to play the chord progressions.
Here we add simple kick drum, snare, bass, pad and melody parts to the song started in Tutorial 7. The result is a patch that represents a complete, albeit simple, song.
