Droney drone drone drone

My most complex patch yet, inasfaras it uses almost every module I own and a flame clockwork. Tones originate from a A-143-1 complex EG/LFO crosspatched into audio range.

As much as I'm not all that big on drones, I found myself letting this patch run for a couple hours. It was really meditative.

very cool!!

So the actual audio is basically just from the A-143-1?

I'd love to hear some more specifics on how you got it oscillating into audio range, and anything else that's effecting it.

I used the technique described here: http://modularsynth.net/viewtopic.php?p=10289#10289. Basically, End of Attack into another AD's trigger, and that AD's End of Attack into the previous trigger.

I have all 4 wired up this way, so I'm getting two separate tones. Both tones are going into a sequential switch and being flopped back and forth. From there it's going into a frequency shifter (with the level all the way up) whose CV is being controlled by the quantized output of a quantized/stored random voltages. All of that is going into a Model 12 with all 4 of its outputs being mixed in a polarizing mixer. That output is going into a Model 13 that is being opened and closed by a voltage controlled decay/gate with the length of the envelope controlled by the bottom half of the Q/SRV and triggered by the clockwork. From the M13, it goes into a Z5000 with a really long reverb and pretty much a fully wet mix.

So, overdriven pitchshifting + lots of vactrol ringing + a Z5000 = drone city.

Awesome! Thanks for that, I love hearing how people are using their modules. The polarized mixing of the various filter outputs from the M12 sounds like it would be a lot of fun tonally. One of those M12's is on my list.

Sure.

I was having trouble sleeping in this awful Baltimore humidity last night, so I put on one of my favorite movies to fall asleep to. Turns out, Shaun of the Dead (which itself channels many other horror soundtracks) was some sort of subconscious sonic guide for this patch. A lot of the background sound design has much of the same reverby pitched growling that my modular was making earlier that evening.
