Stacked & distorted patch on the Rev 2 // Sequential Prophet Rev 2 + Valhalla Shimmer

"I say it all the time but maaannnn I love this synth. This one is built up as two layers with a bunch of mod wheel changes.

Layer A: Only Osc 1 is used - pulse wave, slightly reduced pulse width, muted by cutoff and with a little bit of resonance, decent amount of oscillator slop. Frequency modulation from LFO 1, cutoff modulation from LFO 2. The mod wheel on this layer opens up the filter, reduces the frequency mod, reduces resonance and reduces oscillator slop for an overall cleaner sound to contrast the (eventually) heavily distorted Layer B. There's aftertouch modulation on the LFO2 amount and cutoff though that is used sparingly in this video! The on-board effects slot is running BBD delay.

Layer B: Only Osc 1 again - initially heavily muted by filter cutoff. The mod wheel again opens up the filter, but cranks up the gain on the distortion on the on-board effect slot. It also slightly reduces the VCA Env Amount to stop it from overpowering layer A!

Overall, you get this lovely, soft sound to start - but it transforms into a rich, thick, glorious distorted patch with just the mod wheel!

There are no external effects up to 02:00. Beyond this, Valhalla is used to show the patch in different ways, all the way up to 100% reverb where you get a cool M83/Vangelis-esque pad.
