Slime Child Audio’s Coriander Pines let us know that they’ve introduced a new plugin for VCV Rack, Substation.
Substation is a collection of modules designed to create a subharmonic, polyrhythmic synthesis toolkit. While it takes inspiration from the Moog Subharmonicon Eurorack module, with a similar combination of clock-dividing polyrhythmic sequencers and oscillator + dual sub-oscillator voice, it’s an original design with unique sequencing & synthesis options.
- Clock generator with sync and frequency multiplier
- Three-track polyrhythm sequencer
- Four clock dividers
- Routing matrix with configurable logic
- Adjustable range
- Quantizer supporting just intonation or equal temperament
- Voltage controlled oscillator with two subharmonic outputs
- Primary oscillator plus two detuned subharmonic oscillators
- Selectable waveforms: saw (with PWM), square, self-modulation
- Phase-distortion synthesis
- Chainable mixer with analog-emulated drive and saturation
- Exponential attack-decay envelope generators with unique retriggering
- Four-pole ladder lowpass filter
- Non-linear response
- Low CPU analog circuit emulation
- Clean sine self-resonance
- Linear voltage-controlled amplifier
- Decorative blank panels
Price and Availability
Substation for VCV Rack is available now for $10 USD.

The polyrythm sequencer is great. Using the CV-Map to automate values on the fly gets really saucy.
God I love VCV Rack!
Its the modular you always wanted. “I’d like a Rings please….. make that 2 Rings and a 4ms Spectral Multiband Resonator. How much is that? Free you say… I’ll take it!”
yeah some of the patches i’ve made would literally cost 10K plus in physical modules, VCV is amazing.
Great instrument. I wasn’t in the market for a hardware subharmonicon, but this way it lets me experiment with that way of music making all the same for a fraction of the cost and allowing to keep my work . Love VCV.
FANTASTIC WORK SLIME CHILD!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You deserve some serious kudos as does VCV.
