I've tried a few times before to get deeper into the tech side of audio but really just used ableton to cut up audio into the snippets that made up my tunes. I like to think I made the most of a few modest techniques. But I vowed to return to the idea of more complex technical arrangements and having spent the last few years learning to become a coder (and having dabbled in some web audio), I think now is as good a time as ever.
And as I was deciding which platform to begin with, I stumbled across VCVRack. What I particularly like is the amount of tutorials on Youtube. I hope that by using VCVrack as a stating point I will learn the other platforms: Reaktor, Softube Modular and M4L.
