Here's a slightly more aggressive modular jam with some industrial timbres; something of a throwback, in fact. You might notice that I recorded with the lights out for some ambience. Pretty slick, am I right? I'm using most of my rack here, and I'm starting to feel like I could do with a few more modulation sources. Thoughts? Enjoy and carpe diem!

Patch notes:

There's a lot going on here, so bear with me. The electro synth line heard in the opening is from the Make Noise DPO, whose pitch is controlled by the Intellijel Metropols and with an envelope from the Doepfer Quad Envelope Generator shaping the mod bus index. The fold parameter is struck by the Intelligel Plog and also modulated by another of the Quad Envelope Generator's envelopes, also being struck by the Plog. The FM bus is modulated from one of the outputs on the 4MS Pingable LFO by way of Maths. The shape parameter is also modulated from the Quad LFO. The Final output of the DPO goes to Optomix and then to the Make Noise Erbe Verb. I wish I had done more to modulate the Erbe Verbe for some fun, dark sounds. There's always next time! The square output is sent to the Make Noise LxD for a vactrol bongo sound

The Intellijel Shapeshifter receives pitch from the Make Noise Rene, which is given a rapid clock to generate a sort of freaky arpeggio. This is output to Mutable Instruments Clouds. The signal is periodically frozen and the position is modulated the Shapeshifter's second voice which is set to a noise bank. Patching the Shapeshifter and Clouds up this way produces some really nice airy drones that play semi-tonal chords.

Percussion is driven largely by the Ornament and Crime in Euclidean mode, striking the Tip Top Audio 909 bass drum, as well as both exciting and accenting the Make Noise Mysteron. The Ornament and Crime's CV1 and CV2 control various Euclidean rhythm parameters and are modulated from the 4MS Pingable Quad LFO. The closed hihat comes from Tip Top Audio's HATS909, struck by Maths, and output to Chronoblob for some glitch delay.

Plog receives various clocks mostly from Pamela's Workout and the Deopfer clock divider as well as the output of Erica Synths Sequential Switch.
