"We don't make mistakes, we make happy accidents."
- Bob Ross


This was very much a happy accident. I have never documented patch notes before. So, as complex as this is, so I hope all of you can grasp it. Please note that the knob positions on the DUSG and SSG are crucial in getting this effect, but don't be afraid to try something different. After experimenting for awhile, I turned a few knobs and got this:

All delay-like effects were achieved directly from this panel. No external effects are applied in post.

Patch notes are provided below

Panel 1: Audio Interface





Self-patching the DUSG:
Both sections of the DUSG are patched to self-oscillate. The top section of the DUSG modulates the bottom, and vise versa.
TOP SECTION:
*Main out -> Bottom DSG main input
*Bipolar out -> Bottom DSG VC In
*1v/Oct In -> Bottom DSG 1v/Oct In

BOTTOM SECTION:
*Main out -> TOP DSG main input
*Bipolar out -> TOP DSG VC In

KNOB POSITIONS:
TOP SECTION:
*RISE: ~10 o'clock
*FALL: ~5 o'clock (note: not fully CW)
*VC: ~12:30

BOTTOM SECTION:
*RISE: 11 o'clock
*FALL: 2 o'clock
*VC: 5:30; fully CW

Panel 2: Creature v2



Self-patching the SSG:
The SMOOTH and STEPPED sections are both patched to self-oscillate (CYCLE -> IN).
*SMOOTH out -> STEPPED VC RATE
*STEPPED out -> SMOOTH VC RATE

TGO to SSG:
*Left section GATE out -> STEPPED SAMPLE In

TGO to DUSG:
*Left section BLUE (reverse saw) out -> BOTTOM DSG Main Input
*Right section TRIG In -> GATE out (to self-osc)
*Right section BLUE (tri) -> TOP DSG Main Input
*CUPL out -> Bottom DSG VC In

SSG to DUSG & VCFQ:
*STEPPED out -> TOP DSG 1v/Oct In and VC In
*STEPPED out -> VCFQ 1v/Oct In
*SMOOTH out -> TOP DSG TRIG In

DUSG to VCFQ:
TOP DSG Main out -> VCFQ Main IN (not AGC). The BAND out then completes the signal chain by connecting to one of the two XFAD Ins.

KNOB POSITIONS:
XFAD:
*XFADE: centered
*GAIN: whatever your preferred level is

VCFQ:
*Q: fully CW
*GAIN: ~3 o'clock
*VC F: centered
*FREQUENCY: 12 o'clock

TGO:
*FREQ: ~10:30
*VC In 1 (Left & Right): centered
*RISE: 2 o'clock
*FALL: fully CW

SSG:
*SMOOTH VC Rate: 10 o'clock
*SMOOTH Rate: ~12 o'clock
*STEPPED VC Rate: 10 o'clock
*STEPPED Rate: 2 o'clock


Additional notes:
"Freezing" the delay can be achieved by switching the bottom DSG VC In to 'BOTH'. Modulating the 'FALL' time is normal delay; 'RISE' is pseudo-reverse delay.

Enjoy.

Nice one! cool

cool sounds, but wondering about this input to input

*1v/Oct In -> Bottom DSG 1v/Oct In


what is happening here, some interaction?

animalman both of the DUSG's 1v/Oct Ins are linked together and modulated by the STEEPED output of the SSG. The STEPPED signal modulates the TOP DSG 1v/Oct Input first, and that same signal is carried to the Bottom DSG 1v/Oct Input to distribute that signal; essentially acting as a "mult". Modulation of the Bottom DSG 1v/Oct Input would not happen otherwise. I hope that helps. Cheers.

this is clever , thank you for posting
