The art of DAW and Eurorack integration

Our series on Eurorack integration continues – and Dave Gale grasps the nettle to consider some of the best routes to get your Eurorack into your workflow. This month, MIDI starts the clock rolling…

Modular Monthly Workshop

Part Two

Any Eurorack user will agree – we’ve all spent hours tinkering away, with the electronicmusic equivalent of a garden shed, making wonderful noises and then standing back to admire the beauty. If I’m honest, I like to leave a supposedly useful and complex patch until the next day, to see if my clear ‘morning head’ will feel the same as it did the night before (which is a great trick for checking back on compositions and mixes, too). But all being well, it will be as good as I remember it, and I’ll want to do something with it.

Leaving the DAW open

For me, this means working more towards the use of a DAW – as it’s this world that I feel offers me the potential to really craft my sound into something ‘produced’. I look on at the masters of the Eurorack craft, wondering how they can manage to get things to sound so polished without the use of modern production tools. It’s possibly due to my nature that I like to have control over my work, with the ability to recall it accurately, and that’s what most DAWs offer.
