Patch Notes #10 - Roland System 1M Hidden Oscillators

"Patch Notes #10 (check the description for actual patch notes) for the most recent Pulse Tips demonstrating the hidden oscillators in the Roland System 1M Eurorack semi-modular synthesizer.

Mutable Instruments Braids is the source of the pad-like sounds in WTx4 mode, sequenced by the Make Noise René playing back an 8 step sequence. The Timbre is modulated by a triangle wave from the Malekko Anti-Oscillator in LFO mode.

Braids is routed through Mutable Ripples LP4 to VCA mode, with both the VCA and filter cutoff modulated by the two ADSR envelopes on the Intellijel Dual ADSR module.

The bass is coming from the Make Noise 0-Coast, sequenced by the Korg SQ-1. An uncomplicated routing here, the SQ-1 is clocked by Tempi.

Tempi is also clocking René and the Dual ADSR. As well, it is triggering the Malekko Varigate 4, which is playing back the kick/snare/hihat sequences, via the Dual Borg kick drum setup we've explored in the past, a snare from the Noise Engineering BI and a noise-based hihat inside the Roland Scooper.

The kick and snare are routed through the inputs on the Scooper, while the hihat is routed virtually via the Roland Aira Modular Customizer App.

Tempi is also clocking the Sync Trig input on the Scooper, so that the input percussion signal can be sampled, looped and retriggered in time with the other sequences. The drum sequence is sampled and detuned to a lower pitch.

The lead is coming from the Roland System 1M, played live on the KMI Qu-nexus. The System 1M Osc 1 is set to the Sine FM waveform, while Osc 2 is set to the Synced Sine FM voice. Both are passed through the VCF/VCA/EFX signal chain in the synth, and out to the Mix 4 with the other voices and drums. Then routed through Warps running Parasites alt firmware delays for a bit of extra space."
