Thanks, I appreciate it. I didn´t realize HOW crappy the recording was, for some reason the right channel is also muted... Well, I dropped my phone into a bowl of soup yesterday, that might be it. Haha.

The drums are indeed a real drum break timestretched with some samples on top.

All the stuff the melody line is doing is modulation of the ZPO and Filter FM of Ripples and the Dipole.

as i can see the zpo and rubi side by side in your case... good pairing?
guess the zpo isnt as clean as the rubi but might add some grid…
what is your impression?

I am having a lot of fun over here indeed.

Well, I just uploaded my Rubi sine to your other thread, so I feel kinda dumb now, but still I feel like the Rubicon has a clean and orderly feeling to it, whereas the ZPO is a little more buzzy and I just love its saws. I don't feel the need for clean sines like you do, though, even if I see how they would be nice for demanding FM programming.

I bought the ZPO not because of anything it can do, in fact I am still trying to understand what exactly the Zero Point does, but just because it's sound really gave me the feels.

Right now I am using Rubi to modulate the ZPO mostly, but that is, cause the ZPO is new, I think. Another big plus for the ZPO is its Sync circuitry, which works great with any incoming material. The Rubi sync is a little more needy.

What really makes them a nice combo, is how they are very different. Together they give you many different styles of FM, wavefolding, an octave switch, wave morphing, great sync, many different waveforms, the symmetry and the ZeroPoint VCA.

I hope you guys don't mind if I attach the evolved version of this morning's patch:

yo, fettes brett!
thanks for the demo.
as you already pointed out for fm purposes i do like clean sines because it opens up a different palette of sounds.
but that is just one aspect. mostly i combine different techniques. also adding wavshapers before feeding a sine into a vco for fm.
generally i like to have control over dirt,noise, distortion and decide by myself where (in my patch) and how much i want to add. peace

Just saw one in person for the first time...black....one of the prettiest modules I’ve ever seen.
