I see a box from Roland in the picture...is that a 909? And what types of sounds/music do you want to do?
You could go in many directions from here. If I had this setup I would get another oscillator next perhaps.
My mouth laughs, but my heart weeps...

another Osc (good to get another Oakley slim vco b) and a mixer. this will really open out the possibilities.
  • You can then use 2xOScs through a mixer. :nana:
    Cross modulate 2x Oscs
    Mix LFOs with a mixer and send to Mod source.
    FM with 2x Oscs and still use the corsynth as LFO.
    Use mixer as attenuator for LFO and use 2x LFO but one attenuated.

i couldn't live without delay for spice in small modular.

slopes are great because eg, vco, divider, filter, slew limiting the list goes on, but does none of those things as well as dedicated modules.

dc mixer will be helpful especially to get complex modulation.

vcas will yield fun and modulation variability that is imo priceless

edit: or after thought (though i have not used one) maybe a uO_c for large amounts of digi flexibility.

Definitely! The more I use modular synths the more I realise modulation and modulation of modulation (etc) is king. So after a VCO and an AC mixer, I'd recommend: multiple, envelope generator, attenuator/attenuvertor, frequency divider, DC mixer, and of course:

:vcas:
