Roland Kuit has announced SoundLab II, a new e-book on modular sound design.

Roland Kuit SoundLab II

New tools to individualism. While making these patches I became aware of the fact that there are so many fields, like e.g. astronomy, mathematics, DNA research, IT development and neurotransmitters, with comparable functionality. It is in the way these fields are organized that we can recognize patterns.

What amazes me is the connectivity and parallels, in so many fields finding its way into modular sound design now, by cabling these findings into patch architectures. It was a challenge and especially fun to bring and connect this fields together. Certainly it will be a challenge for everybody’s creativity in finding new ways in modular sound design.

This e-book is not for lower level users. The modules are not going to be explained. The patch structures with accompanying text and order explain a way of thinking by themselves. You always can consult the G2 Editor help-file. Patches, or parts of patches can be copy/pasted to new patches and/or performances to get new structures.
