Wow, that sounds like a nightmare. Here, I'm on the east coast usa, I think its 'okay, grab all you can the user doesn't care' attitude and nothing in place to stop them. Yes, insane. Extremely. That's why, and you agree, having a FB is not attractive. I'll just nope right out of there .. so the mystery continues

I appear to use VM almost exclusively in standalone version. It is a different, inspiring workflow (or should I say playground) for me which I enjoy on its own. Having all in one place/one window and just patching along... then, when you find sweet spots : just recording the audio as live session - as contrast to working with VSTs in a DAW where - usually - everything has to be done in more than one stage and a piece usually takes a while to process from idea gathering to final stage.

So yeah.. that*s what inspires me with VM.
Here is an account of mine which has material exclusively done in this way. No composition, no production, just raw exploration in VM.

Thanks for sharing … it is appreciated. Right now, I’m using VM more as a sound source when the need for these timbres are useful. It’s too bad about the FB group where users showcase their work, equally disappointing, there is no interest in the Reddit group, r/voltagemodular - it seems, rather underused … r/cherryaudio is more for marketing

I bought the system 100 modules and year 3 collection on special offer. Thought it was way worth it for you get. I prefer to learn something until i have found out it all there is to it. So am still working on the system 100 and arp 2500. My understanding of synthesis and synthesizers has went up quite a lot. Being able to use these unicorns even in software is quite the thing.
