Synthesizer Patch Prompts

Share a brief patch idea!

  • Sparse gate signal gating an audio input (I like using AM or FM radio) into a delay with feedback at 100%. Can also use a 2nd sparse gate to turn the feedback to 0%. After a bit some sort of rhythmic pattern will develop.
  • Sequencer CV output controlling the frequency/time of its own clock input. With a 2 step sequence, this generates various levels of swing. With more steps you can get what I’d call “off-meter rhythmic patterns”
