That Doepfer Sound by and per se and published on 2014/03/17 09:38:15 +0000 An experiment using all of my Doepfer modules and nothing else! (Well, apart from some outboard delay & reverb). The first part is the A143-4 acting as both modulator/sequencer and oscillator. Two triangle LFOs go into the A185-2 (for mixing and offset) then into the A156 to create a sequence. The second LFO modulates the first, creating a complex series of slow arpeggios. The sequence CV is multed to the other two A143-4 oscillators, then the triangle of one and the square of the other go into an A134-2 channel for manual crossfading (the A134-2 doesn't have knobs, just CV in, so I use an A166 NOT out as a voltage source and attenuate that through the A183-1). One of the oscs resets the other, and the A143-4 sum triangle out modulates the slave osc's pitch, to create hard-sync timbral movement. The rest of the track (from about 3:18 on) alternates between two takes from two different patches. The first is a simple drone patch, using the A133 to fade, overdrive and ring modulate a couple of triangles from the A143-4, and the A134-2 to cross fade between them. The second is a mad beast of a patch, using every single Doepfer module I own. Two A143-4 VCOs creates audio, which is ring-modded, AMed and cross-faded in various ways by the A133 and A134-2. These outputs go into the A152's switch inputs, together with variants that go through the A160/161/166 combo to provide glitches and suboctaves. One A143-4 VCLFO clocks the A152, and another sends its tri through the A156 to control one of the VCOs. Then it's all cross-patched to buggery, with manual tweaking as well, to create all sorts of growls, chirps and quasi-digital glitchy nastiness.
