    Overview

    Here we begin with a brief look at the broad aspects and nature of the Arturia Modular V, as well as a bit of history before digging further into this recreation of a synthesizer that essentially started it all.

  • image description 7:02

    The User Interface & Basic Operation

    In this video, we take a look at the main interface and general layout of the Modular V so that you have a good idea of its operation before getting into the specifics.

  • image description 8:29

    The Oscillator Modules

    At the start of any subtractive synthesizer is the oscillator. In modular synthesis, our oscillators are very independent in nature, but they are related to each other in terms of being grouped as Drivers or Slaves. Here, we get a feel for these modules.

  • image description 10:33

    The Output Amplifiers or VCAs

    In order to output a sound, the signal must go through an amplifier module. This concept is common, but a bit of the modular routing can add another step, which we will go through in this video.

  • image description 5:52

    Modulation Envelopes & LFOs

    With these modules, we can shape a signal's movement for whatever other target module we intend to change. The LFOs move continually at defined frequencies and parameters, and the envelopes give a one-shot signal defined by ADSR controls.

  • image description 5:12

    The Filter Modules

    One of the most common ways to alter a sound in its path is a filter module. We have a variety of them to apply to our signal, and here we have a look at the options available.

    Additional Modules for Modifying Signals Pt. 1

    Throughout synthesis in the Modular V, we have a lot of options to apply different modifiers into our signal via many different modules. Here we take a look at the Bode Frequency Shifter, Formant Filter, and Trigger Delay Modules.

  • image description 6:45

    Additional Modules for Modifying Signals Pt. 2

    Continuing on from the previous video, we'll now look at the Ring Modulator, Envelope Follower, Sample & Hold, and Noise Modules.

  • image description 8:12

    The Step Sequencer

    The Step Sequencer of the Modular V has the vintage feel of the original classic instrument, which allows for workflows of the past, but with the benefits of present day software conveniences. Watch how!

  • image description 3:51

    The Effects Modules

    At the end of our signal path, effects modules can add interesting characteristics to a sound with the Fixed Filters, Dual Delay, and Phaser. Here, we see these modules in action.

  • image description 10:31

    Virtual Keyboard & Related Controls Pt. 1

    In this video, we take a look at the lower section of the Modular V, where we find the various play modes for different Polyphony, Glide and Legato controls, as well as Key Follow settings.

  • image description 6:22

    Virtual Keyboard & Related Controls Pt. 2

    Continuing with the lower section and also the Internal Connections section, take a look at how we can adjust settings with shortcuts to Filter and Envelope settings, XY controls, and linking Keyboard Inputs like Velocity to various parameters.

  • image description 6:24

    Preset Management & the Browser

    Now take a closer look at the Arturia Modular V's browser and its wide selection of factory presets and more. Then learn how to add your own presets and get them organized for future use.

  • image description 8:13

    Modular V Sound Design Techniques Pt. 1

    Now that we have a grasp on the features of the Modular V, explore some creative techniques of synthesis to achieve unique sound qualities out of our modular synthesis sound designs. Here we look at some downloadable templates of a few processes that can be useful "building blocks" in sound design, including filter modulations, mod wheel vibrato control, oscillator sync, and synthesizing with frequency modulation.

  • image description 6:04

    Modular V Sound Design Techniques Pt. 2

    In this video, we continue looking at the downloadable templates that can be useful "building blocks" in sound design, including polyphonic detuned saws and implementing the sequencer.

  • image description 8:33

    Bass Sound Design

    In this video, we use the Modular V for one of its many strengths, creating basses. Watch how to make a classic, multi-oscillator bass that can also be sequenced into a driving bassline.

  • image description 7:56

    Lead Sound Design

    See how to create a filtered lead sound that uses the Mod wheel for vibrato and has characteristics that somewhat resemble a theremin, yet has a classic synthesizer feel that shines as it glides.

  • image description 11:35

    Pad Sound Design

    In this video, we take a journey through sound design by layering many pieces together in modular fashion to create a unique pad sound that can drone and keep a rhythm with one key.

  • image description 4:52

    Review & Conclusion

    At this point we've covered the technical aspects of the Modular V and how to creatively implement that knowledge with some sound design examples. Now we'll sum things up with a quick recap and a few tips that will see you on your way to making fantastic sounds with this awesome recreation of a legendary, historic synth!

I started playing around with music at a young age with garage sale keyboards or whatever else I could get my hands on. My older brothers were very much into bands and guitars, and so I was always around some of the culture. I played alto sax throughout school in the concert, marching, and jazz bands. Browsing through our home computer in middle school, I started playing with music trackers and sequencers that my brothers had installed. From there I found FL Studio, which the demo version we had at that time was still called FruityLoops. It proved to be an excellent passtime for a kid like myself where I could mess around and make some silly little tunes. Through high school and college, I became very well versed in the world of computer audio and all the things that can be done with synthesizers and digital recording. With the growing understanding came a growing excitement for the endless possibilities that I could achieve in music, sound design, and recording. So I kept learning and searching further, where I kept finding that there was always more to learn! 
 
I was, and continue to be, captivated by every step of music production, be it creative or technical in nature. I’ve been fortunate to work under many kinds of production circumstances, whether in a professional studio space such as Mudcat Studios in Utah or getting a professional sound out of various home studios that I’ve used for recording instruments and live bands. I’ve also been able to work on my fair share of electronic music, either solo or with other producers in person or online for collaborations. And now with Groove3, I take great pride in sharing the knowledge and experience that I’ve been so thrilled to accumulate through my diverse journey through music and production. As that journey continues and I continue to grow myself, I am truly thankful that I am lucky enough to help those around me to improve and follow their own passions for music!
