the first one's main riff could've used some filtering and modulation to bring out some character and variation.

the 2nd i liked a lot but the main constant tone could've benefited from a long shallow sweep in frequency. the tone was nice so i wouldn't change much just enough to keep it from getting ear bleeding.

could you break down what modules you used and how everything was patched?

thanks for listening and for the tips. right now i'm just figuring out how to patch things together. i need to spend more time learning to get different timbres and colors out of the sounds (i.e. filters/modulations sources).

the main two modules in both were the cgs utility lfo and mfos sample and hold. the first patch was one vco fed into the sample and hold. the sample and hold voltage out was sent back to the lin cv of the same oscillator. the lfo controlled the clock of the s&h and the cutoff frequency of a state variable filter that had two oscillators patched into it.

the second had honestly every module i own patched in. i don't remember the specifics, but the lfo controlled the clock of the s&h and opened and closed a vca. that's really all i remember.

cool. yeah i've found if i can get almost or all of my modules involved in a big or minor role it always makes for a great patch.

my advice for learning the system is start small.

take two or three modules and try to squeeze as many patches and pot settings out of em as possible. from there you'll be able to really expand on things just by adding another module or two. you can see the snowball effect taking place as you keep expanding the patch.

also keep in mind that most modules that are seemingly designed for one thing can be used for plenty of others.

for example, a VCO can be an audio source, an LFO, a clock source and a modulator. not to mention the endless variations within those few uses.

another example, my dual filter can be used as a filter, VCO, an LFO, a clock source, a modulator, a mixer and a splitter.

all modules will have their strengths and their weaknesses but most will do very similar things, it's so odd and intriguiging.

and if it came right down to it, a HUGE GIGANTIC system of just bread and butter modules could easily yield highly complex results. the more interesting wild modules to me are just viewed as more bang for buck with less space ate up.
