An up-front ambient pad. Mod wheel creates an thick leslie/rotary sound (just slightly faster than any real leslie could hope to be!) that sounds even stranger when after touch is depressed at full speed. Touch 1 creates a sound that more definitive for leads. Activating chord also creates a huge lead tone that retains root note, but adds perfect 5ths, 4ths, and octaves. touch 2 is noise. Leave in lower octaves since after touch creates scooped filter dip. Try after touch with chord activated and slowly increase mod wheel while pressing touch 2 activated! (leave in lower octave for filters to function properly since they go negative with after touch)
Very similar to wheelwobambience but has a different take on mods. Most of the comments from wheelwobambience hold true here, but try mod wheel fully open, with after touch engaged. noise is tied to the slow growth on oscillator 3! To control the noise with aftertouch hold touch 2 and experiment with different pressures. If this patch is too intense deactivate the chord, it has intervals of octaves, P4's, and P5's so it will retain root qualities but can be overwhelming.
Built off a the joanna bells patch but transformed. Hold after touch with caution causes intense feedback! Please add some additional mods or touches if you'd like I was having a hard time finding ones I liked. try in poly mode with chord active as well.
A poly1 wave-table patch designed for staccato and quick licks. LFO one controls index and is a one shot, so each new keystrike gives you next wave table. Dive bomb octave after touch, mod wheel fully open emphasizes percussiveness. Chord unit set up to add an extra layer of depth.
Organ and triangle based patch with delay, phaser filter sweeps assiged to LFO's, and vsyncs assigned to mod wheel. Chord activated creates a maj7 chord so you can use it to emphasize major key changes. FilterRes on after-touch. Touch mods are a bit lacking, almost out of slots left a few empty for you to tweak. Filter's attached to LFO2+/- set at 16th intervals creates interesting stepping during sustained notes. Also, mod wheel fully open sets to infinite delay feedback, interesting to blast fully on during a quick-run solo for a few bars.
Inspired by Eric Whitacre's vocal arrangement "Lux Aurumque" with some obvious synthesis enhancements. Try playing the opening passage with this patch.
Moog type sound, square, triangle, and a wavetable osc. Unison detuning, filter and vsync aftertouch, multiple mod wheel assignments including a stereo panning tied to LFO rates, rectify distortion (i know i know..diode would have been more accurate but it was making some strange clipping) No tweaks or touches added, change them as you like!
