How To Use Arturia Moog Modular V's Powerful Onboard Sequencer

Modelling the classic Moog hardware means Modular V's sequencer works a little differently to some others. Rishabh Rajan shows you how it works and explores its many abilities...  

Arturia's Moog Modular V is a great-sounding virtual recreation of a genuine classic, and a good way to get Moog sounds without the huge expense of owning a real hardware model. In this short video from the course Arturia V 202: Moog Modular V Advanced, synth expert Rishabh Rajan delves into the workings of the instrument's sequencer section, which allows you to create authentic Moog sequences and patterns inside the synth itself.

Since it models the classic hardware, the sequencer on the Modular V isn't like the kind of grid-based note input models you might be familar with. Instead, it uses various voltage dials in combination with assignments in other areas of the synth to work its magic. You'll see an explanation of how to assign the sequencer to different sections as well as practical examples of creating sequences using different kinds of patterns. Check out the rest of the videos for much more on the advanced capabilities of Moog Modular V!
