I´ve started working on Tutorial 10 about Softube´s Modular. This time I´m going to talk about the module Intellijel “Rubicon”. It´s a prety complex beast and the tutorial will probably be the longest one I´ve ever produced (looks like something about two and a half hour, perhaps even up to three hours). I suppose it´s going to be available at the end of July. For those, who have missed the beginning: Tutorials 1 to 9 start here https://youtu.be/0wEKRCOPTFI

Have a great day and a good time!

It´s done again! The “Rubicon” tutorial is available (part 10 of my series about Softube´s Modular). With about 95 hours of production time (included some night shifts) it´s got the longest and most comprehensive – so far – tutorial I´ve ever made: nearly 3 hours of explanations, experiments – and some jokes. And it´s not only the most comprehensive tutorial I have ever produces, it is – so far – also the most comprehensive tutorial about “Rubicon” on the Internet (disprove it, if you can :-))!
