Back after a while away. Looking for some input into my 104hp case, as I’m a bit stuck and uninspired with it. I’m basically after two things from my modular: drone, with interesting waveshaping options/slow modulation, and chaotic, free-improv-ish stuff. Here is what I currently have:
I’m using the A-118/A-136/A-196 as a noise/random source; the A-136 is really nice for messing up CV and sending into the PLL for blips and scratches. But, it’s 24hp for that, which is a lot in a case of this size, so something smaller would be nice. Also I feel like it’s lacking modulation sources in general, so I’ve sketched this:
Any thoughts? I’ve never used a Mysteron, and I know they’re discontinued, but I feel like they could do a lot of what I’m after. The Sloths is a no brainer for slow modulation, and Let’s Splosh for expanding things like the Doepfer modules.
I’m struggling to put a coherent case together, basically. I’m after two simple but distinct ‘sounds’, but the endless world of Euro is making that tricky. I have a SoftPop that I use a whole bunch more than this case, and that’s just two oscillators, a filter, and some feedback. I’m used to that, and performing with broken cassette players and blank tapes. 104hp feels like a huge space to try and fill.
I find limitations enjoyable and struggle to work without them. Help?
tl;dr - Help me find wacky modulation of a couple of audio sources, with a comb filter/delay! And should I forget drone and just make that in Max/MSP? Or, should I get rid of the lot and replace it with a monosynth and a Rainmaker?
