VCV Rack 1.0 polyphonic

Changes in VCV Rack v1.1.0

  • Polyphony
    Use up to 16 voices with the full flexibility of modular patching. Cables automatically turn polyphonic when requested by MIDI modules, sequencers, etc.
  • MIDI output
    Control MIDI hardware with Rack modules. New modules include CV-GATE for drum machines, CV-MIDI for desktop synths, and CV-CC for Eurorack interfaces.
  • MIDI mapping
    Control knobs, buttons, and sliders directly from a MIDI controller. Using the new MIDI-MAP module, click a virtual parameter and move a hardware control to create a mapping.
  • Module Browser
    Search, filter, and view modules in your collection. Click and drag to directly place modules in the rack.
  • Multi-core engine
    Use multiple CPU threads to maximize the number of modules. Accelerated polyphonic engines on many VCV and third-party modules.
  • Many other new features and fixes, including manual parameter entry, module disabling, module “force” dragging, module expanders, easy zoom gestures, and more.

VCV Rack is open-source with binaries available for download for Windows, macOS and Linux.
