But rather than playing with all 4 different slots available, I decided to stick to a single slot and make a more ambient concert, sometimes even sounding like cosmic whales!
The challenge was to take out the most I could out of a single patch to make an interesting performance, and I honestly believe the result was pretty interesting!
So, in this post, I will try to explain how I made the amazing patch that created all the sounds you heard in the concert, which I also shared together with my performance (just follow the previous link).
I named this patch 4FMDropper and it is a significantly more complex patch than what I've shown you so far, as you can see from the following image:
And it could have actually been more complex, but if I had used more modules, I wouldn't be able to actually control all the parameters available from the interface of the Clavia Nord Modular G2X...
This made me decide to stick to a simpler structure, so that everything could be controlled using only the Clavia Nord Modular G2X.
One of the main inspirations for this patch was the classic Serge modular system, which I'm not fortunate to own (yet!).
If you heard about this amazing modular synth, you'll likely heard about the DUSG, which is an amazing multitask module that can be used as an LFO with variable rising and fall slopes.
A way to recreate this function of the DUSG is using the EnvADR module in the Clavia Nord Modular G2, and connect the End output to the Gate/Trigger input, like shown in the image below:
