Interesting patch. The modulating audio and filter, combined with a little distortion, creates a swelling saturation that comes and goes. It really gives it an extra dimension.
How It’s Made
- Synth: Primer
- Oscillators. Osc 1: Square wave. Osc 2: Square wave, pitched up 12 semitones. Set Mix to 90% Osc 2, so we’re mostly getting that higher pitch, with a little low end brought in from Osc 1.
- Unison: 2 Voice, full Spread and medium Detune. This is more for creating a really wide sound, not so much for creating pulsation
- Filter: Low Pass, Cutoff around Noon, with a decent amount of Res. To be modulated by…
- Filter Envelope: Very small amount, as when we later add the distortion it will add brightness, essentially accentuating the filter movement. Quick-ish attack at 560ms, very long release so that it hangs in a brighter state when we let go of the key
- Amp Envelope: Attack at 93 ms to give us a subtle swell in, Release at 3150 ms to create a nice long note
- LFO: This is our wobble. It’s quick and aggressive Tremolo. Route to Volume, Triangle Wave, with a really high Amount, and very quick Rate. Poly Mode so that each new note doesn’t reset the previous note’s wobble. And Trig on, so that each note starts the same
- Voices: Poly, 2 voices. This way each note will overlap the previous, but will only allow up to 2 overlapping notes, so that it doesn’t get too messy
- Distortion: we don’t need a ton, as we’re just looking for subtle, tubey break up when the sound is at it’s loudest and two notes overlap
- Chorus: Blends the whole thing into a washy spread. Medium Rate at about 2 Hz, 50/50 Mix.
- Delay: we want a fairly noticeable trail of echos to really send the sound off into the distance. About 40% Wet, full Spread for really wide echos, medium feedback so we can hear the trail, and pretty quick Rate/Time.
- Reverb: Medium Size, 25% Wet. We’re putting it in a fairly big room
