This patch began as a study of the use of the Caudal chaotic LFO to modulate parameters of the Plateau plate reverb. The patch required an audio input, I decided upon the Waves and SH-Osc oscillators from the Tiny Tricks plugin, with the further addition of the Annuli module (aka Rings). The rest of the patch is filled with my usual crew of modules (see the roster below).

Structurally the patch is quite straightforward. Complexity of the sound comes from heavy modulation of parameters on all the audio production modules, including the Caudal LFOs themselves. Everything else is simple routing and mixing. A special shout-out for the excellent Bogaudio EGs, particularly the DADSR(H) module for its 10x slow-down of the envelope, a great feature for long sounds such as the drone in this patch.

The players:

Autodafe – 1×8 Multi
Bogaudio – ADSR, DGate, DADSR(H), S&H
Frozen Wasteland – BPM LFO
HetrickCV – Random Gates
Impromptu Modular – Clocked, Tact-1
JW-Modules – Quantizer
RJModules – Button
Southpole – Annuli
Squinky Labs – Form, ExFor
Stoermelder – uMap, Strip
SynthKit – Clock Divider
Tiny Tricks – Wave, SH-Osc

Wiqid Anomalies – Dual Attenuverter

My thanks to the team, they play a great game. Ditto to the devs. Shouting out gratitudinal calls to all members of the VCV Rack community for their continuing support and inspiration !
