This has been an incredibly instructional thread. I feel like I'm meeting my Optomix for the first time. Thanks everyone!!

The main function is that it lets you bring up the word vactrol. Because it's fun to say vactrol.

this is helping me get to the bottom of my RYO Aperture:) never fully understood it but love the sound of it chopping between klang (equivalent to strike on optomix I assume) and CV inputs.

My A-101-2 hardly rings at all if I feed it a short pulse, but responds very well to stepped CV from a sequencer, like it has a weird unpredictable slew limiter built in.


Hmm, I'll have to try that thumbs up

In this patch, the CV out from the upper row of a Doepfer Dark Time is patched to a VCO and the unattenuated CV input of the A-101-2, and random gate pulses from the lower row are sent to the A-101-2's attenuated CV input, with the input level starting at zero and increasing around the 30 second mark. The vactrol decay effect can be heard in the twang after the high note, and in the nice bouncy sounds that start to happen when I turn the level up on the random gates.

The kick drum is an A-101-1 vactrol VCF being pinged at the cutoff CV input by a very short pulse from an A-171-2 VCS.

I was going to talk about low pass gates at some point anyway, but this discussion in this thread made me kick of this video sooner than later...
