What Will I Learn?
- You will learn the functionality of Bogaudio's Sample and Hold
- You will learn how to operate Sample and Hold
- You will learn some of the uses of Sample and Hold
To complete this tutorial learners will need to have the following:
- The software application VCV Rack installed
- Access to the Internet
- An account created on www.vcvrack.com
- Bogaudio plugins installed
This tutorial is at an beginner level.
Sample and Hold is a very old technology. It can be found some vintage instruments, such as the ARP2600. This tool has allowed the creation of some great music over the decades. There are still new and exciting ways to use this tool in modern music. Have a thorough understanding of the technology behind this module will give you a better understanding of how you can use it in your own music.
Learn the functionality of Bogaudio's Sample and Hold
Sample and Hold is a Control Voltage signal tools. It can be used for audible signals, but is intended for control voltage.
Sample and Hold works by taking a sample of the control voltage on the incoming signal at the moment of a trigger then maintaining this voltage level for a desired duration.
Learn how to operate Sample and Hold
Sample and Hold requires a Trigger input. This can come from a clock or an LFO or any number of other sources. Sample and Hold also takes an input from a Control Voltage such as an LFO. The output will go to the FM of a sound sources, such as a VCO. Setting the trigger time will set how often your module will sample the Control Voltage. Each time a sample is taken the module will sent out that sampled voltage level to the VCO. At the end of the duration Sample and Hold will send out an END signal, resample and start transmitting the new Control Voltage.
Learn some of the uses of Sample and Hold
In this video tutorial I show the basic uses for Sample and Hold, but there are numerous ways to use this module. Explore the possibilities by incorporating it into your own setup.
