In the past few weeks, Point Blank has been publishing an interesting tutorial series, in which course developer and instructor Dan Herbert has been looking at two of Arturia’s Modular plugins, the ARP 2600 and the MOOG Modular.
These were among the first analog emulation plugins released by the French company, and I remember being totally fascinated by them when they came out.
I picked them up again after Arturia provided a helpful redesign in the latest Arturia V Collection 5 and they’re still a fantastic way to get into the wonderful world of modular synthesis (without spending thousands of dollars!).
In the videos covering Arturia’s Moog Modular plugin and the ARP 2600, Point Blank instructor Dan Herbert gives us an overview of the plugin, showing us the basics of modular synthesis and sound design techniques.
Here you can see the Dan in action with the powerful Moog Modular…

These videos showcase just a small part of the things you can learn on the sound design module on Point Blank’s BA (Hons) Music Production and Sound Engineering Degree.
