2019-10-28 VCS3

I recently bought the iVCS3 app for the iPad. It’s a weird sound generator from the seventies. If you want to know how it works, you’re encouraged to look at the manual of the original. It’s from 1970. 🙂

I decided to buy the app for about $15 because at a recent event (Zürich Modular Fest) I played around with a Syntrx. That one costs €2500…

Today I also discovered that there are a bunch of emulators: Free EMS VCS3 & Synthi AKS VST emulations.



Some of the patches I made for the iVCS3:

  • Playing the Erhu from Garage Band while my patch produces some background noise [1]
  • Sound bubbles falling, like weird mechanical birds [2]
  • Playing the Erhu from Garage Band while my patch produces the noise of an old car engine [3]
