AE Challenge 1 - Envelope as Oscillator

Published on Jan 11, 2019 TheTechnobear

"AE Modular - Patch Challenge 1

Theme: create sound from a module which is not an oscillator.

This short track uses AE modular to create a bass line that uses an envelope as a sound source!
(bass line is heard throughout, but most obvious during intro and end)

The basic idea is that an envelope can be triggered at 'audio rate' via its gate input, and output is then an audio waveform that can be shaped using the envelopes shaping parameters (attack/decay).
to add more variation, I used two square wave oscillators (2OSC) to drive gate 1 and 2,
the oscillators were at different frequencies, and I also modulated the pulse width with an LFO.

other sounds are coming from my eurorack modular.
some FX added in Ableton.

the video is just a handheld iPhone video of the gear used, and some visuals generated on the C&G Organelle.
Its only 720p as im testing out Lightworks as a video editor for the first time :)"
