Hello everyone! I love to make strips of Rack modules that are useful as modular bits to quickly throw together functional patches. It seems I like to make these strips more than actual full patches, so I’ve decided to clean up and release a new strip from my collection every day until… who knows!
Today’s strip is one I’m really proud of, it’s a supersaw-based synth lead that’s intended to be played on a velocity-sensitive keyboard. To me it sounds a lot like a heavily distorted guitar through a screaming wah-wah pedal. Usually when I make a mono lead it doesn’t sound all that special to me, but this one stands out, and I love the expressiveness using the modwheel, velocity, and portamento all together.

If you use one of my strips in your patch give me a shoutout! Also I’m always looking to make the most CPU efficient strips so if you have ideas for improvements in that area I’d love to hear it.
