VCV Rack is a new open-source virtual modular synthesizer for Mac/Windows/Linux based on the appearance, sound, and functionality of Eurorack and other modular formats. Its first stable version, 1.0, was recently released, including modular polyphony, a multi-threaded DSP engine, MIDI input/output, MIDI parameter mapping, and several other frequently-requested features. Rack's license allows open-source, freeware, and commercial plugins to be built using Rack's SDK, and its community has grown in the last two years to over 100,000 users and around 150 plugin developers, with over 1,200 modules currently available.

After the talk there will be community announcements, and socializing. If you'd like to give a 2 minute demo/ community announcement, please see the organizers when you arrive to get set up.

A community announcement includes looking for a project partner, a job, offering a project/ job, the announcement of your startup launch, your Crowdfunding pitch, etc.

We're looking forward to seeing you Thursday, July 11 at 6:30pm!

Streaming Live at 7:00pm! Watch the Live Stream on Supplyframe FM:
