Erica Synths Black Octasource: first patch

Published on Jul 10, 2017 voltlife

"My first experiment with Erica's Octasource: using the 8 outputs to control the 8 harmonics of the Verbos Harmonic Oscillator seemed like a natural fit! Indeed, in both multi- and single-wave mode, it created interesting harmonic/melodic rhythms on top of the basic Moskwa sequence that drives the HO.

I also used a slower sequence from a Verbos Voltage Multistage to change around the wave selections in the Octasource, and some clock dividers to sync the LFO rate.

There's some clipping and clicking here and there (I told you it was my first experiment!). The clipping is largely because the Verbos HO can send out a very hot signal when lots of harmonics are on, and the clicks are because the Octasource includes some waves with sharp transitions (like pulses and saws). If you wanted to avoid that, stick to the smoother waves or add a tiny bit of slew. I've also added a bit of reverb and delay to fill out the sound, but it doesn't change the fundamentals of the patch."
