    My first patch using my 5U modules. Featured are the Modcan VCDO, VCO, and Oakley Diode Superladder filter (Roland). Also featured are the filters, envs, and amplifiers on the Moog Voyager, as well as a bass sound from the FutureRetro XS (bandpass filtered with high reso).

    What words would you use to describe the resulting sound? My wife's first response was "juicy." Another friend said "nasty". Either way, I think it sounds great. Going modular was everything I thought it would be!

      What happens here? It almost sounds like the modulation folds back upon itself somehow.. it purrs.

      @Dark Elixir - SPACEURCHIN: I got this drum sound by making a beat using stock samples from the Maschine library and slamming them through the Stillwell Rocket VST Compressor.

      Sounds fantastic, even streamed from SC. Found it on Gearslutz.... maybe you should make a video.. don't smoke though!

      @mateo murphy: Thanks!
      Whatever codec they're using must be terrible, because when I encode at 128kbps (or a low vbr) it sounds fine.

      @btbyrd: that's because the streaming file is always 128kbps

      Nice sounds btw!

      I decided it sounds like VOLTAGE.

      I'm glad you guys like it!

      Caveat: The SoundCloud streaming player introduces some weird aliasing that's not in the original file... so the download sounds MUCH better than the streaming version. That goes for all files I've listened to on SC.
