Modular Ambient Chords

"Modular Ambient Chords
I created a patch with the following modules: A-155 sequencer, A-147-2 VCDLFO, A-140 ADSR, RT-311 Swarm Oscillator, RT-451 Dual Multimode Filter and the RT-1701 'EFFEXX' Multi FX processor. I was so surprised by these floating ambient tones that I forgot to check the ISO settings of my DSLR camera. As a result, I received a noisy video footage. It really looked bad. So I decided to replace that footage with some Landschaftspark clips - which are not really much better. Anyway. It's all about that modular patch. So just close your eyes and listen to the modular ambient patch.
What the patch does: I have two audio signal sources. One audio signal is the output of the envelope generator and one signal is a chord from the swarm oscillator. These signals are fed into the inputs of the RT-451 Multimode filter. The outputs of the filter are fed into the EFFEXX Multi FX unit. The envelope signal source is triggered by the LFO. The LFO also triggers the step sequencer. The control voltages of the step sequencer control the cutoff frequency of both filters, the delay tuning of the EFFEXX string filter and the pitch of the swarm oscillator. I am changing the following parameters during the performance:
The reverb level.
The string filter frequency.
The modulation depth and speed of the string filter delay time.
The delay feedback.
The cutoff frequencies of the multimode filter.
The speed of the LFO.
I hope, you enjoy this litte ambient track."
