VR Music Production is Providing the Best of Both Worlds from Software and Analog

Virtual reality technology brings together the convenience of soft synths with the tactile experience of analog hardware.

VR music production has hit the market, offering music producers a whole new production experience. These programs provide a 3D, virtual space wherein users can interact with a wide array of full-scale synthesizers, sequencers, drum machines, and a variety of effects.

One of these programs is Synth VR, a fully virtual modular synthesizer developed by 42Tones. Just like plug-ins in a DAW, the program makes it easy to instantly create modules. However, in this case they float in a VR space and are connected with drag-and-drop patch cables. Synth VR currently offers over 30 synth modules, including oscillators, LFOs, mixers, sequencers, effects, and more. Among many program highlights, users can slave units into one another, utilize “spectral speaker mode” to set panning in 3D VR, and create multitrack recordings from a virtual set up.

SynthSpace, developed by Bright Light Interstellar, is another VR program that offers similar tools to Synth VR but features more realistic graphics and a more true-to-life experience, generally speaking. Sample importing and the ability to customize environment graphics are two additional features, enabling you to work from the middle of a virtual forest just as easily as from a virtual state-of-the-art sound studio. Head over to GitHub to find the SynthSpace Audio Layer source, released by the program developers, which allows program users to code their own custom modules. 

Korg’s move into the VR space comes in the form of their Gadget program development, a self-described “all-in-one music production software and plugin collection” originally designed for the iPad. Many other VR music creation programs exist, but for now, the market for professional-grade VR production software remains very small compared to the larger world of soft synths and effects.

These programs are compatible with a growing number of VR headsets including the Oculus Rift and Quest, HTC Vive range, and Valve Index.

SourceAudio YouTube Content ID Interface Tour

Get an inside look at the tools used to track assets and manage claims.

Here’s an exclusive look at the tools that SourceAudio Content ID subscribers use within the suite. It’s where you’ll find all the essential YouTube tools that no other service provides, with the convenience and ease of use that our clients love. Sign up now and collect your YouTube earnings at 100-0 split for the first 90 days!

SourceAudio Content ID Panel 1

The Earnings Panel

  1. Select a month (ex. March ‘20) to export a CSV spreadsheet of all the tracks that generated revenue that month, including the total view count and the amount payable.
  1. Get a quick look at the top performing tracks with each track’s all time total earned, plus links to play, download, and share. View 5, 10, 25, or 50 tracks at a time, and scroll through pages of listings to view all ingested tracks.

SourceAudio Content ID Panel 2

The Claims Panel

  1. Click Export Claims to export a CSV of all claims created within any specified time period. Export only currently active claims, only released claims, or both.
  1. Search for claims by SourceAudio ID, claimed video ID, or YouTube channel ID, and the claims list will show only those claims.
  1. Instantly release any claim by clicking the Release button. We provide the date and time the claim was placed as well as links to view the claimed video and corresponding channel to get a closer look at the claim as needed.

SourceAudio Content ID Panel 3

The Allow-Listing Panel

  1. To allow-list a channel, just enter the channel’s channel ID and a note if you’d like. We offer an easy-to-use channel finder just below the YouTube Channel ID field to streamline the process – just click the link, search for the channel, and click to allow-list. You can also grab a channel’s ID manually from the end of the channel’s URL (ex. youtube.com/channel/UCT3h1LLqq5WRDrwR-vZRZgw).

    Before allow-listing any channel, review the checkbox to the right of the allow-listing entry fields. Leave it checked if all currently existing claims on that channel should be released, or uncheck it if you’d only like to prevent new claims from being placed. Then click the Allow-list Channel button, and that’s it – videos on the allow-listed channel that use your music will no longer be claimed!
  1. Revoke a channel's allow-listed status at any time by clicking the Remove Channel button on its line listing. Once a channel's allow-listed status has been revoked, newly uploaded videos on that channel that contain music in Content ID will be claimed normally.
Plus quick, seamless ingestion – load your tracks into Content ID straight from SourceAudio. No additional uploading required.
