In going beyond initial tutorials for synths I found it useful to have a systematic way to explore the presets. Exploration and experimentation is a fun way to learn the capabilities of Voltage Modular but the results should be documented to record the new knowledge and reinforce the experience.

In Voltage Modular when confronted by a rack with a mass of cables and modules. With many of the modules may be unknown or used in new combinations.

The quick version:

1. Colour code the cables. It help to highlight the difference between audio and CV

2. Use Voltage Modular labels to differentiate modules and specific connections.

3. Use the Voltage Modular blank panel or notepads from the VM shop to make notes on important parts of the rack.

4. Make notes on each the output and inputs from the various modules. Following the flow and making notes gives increased familiarity with how the rack works.

It may seem a lot of work for each rack and at the start it can be. Just work a few racks of the type you are interested in. As you develop more understanding there may be less need for notes.

Here are some links to provide more detail:
