This is rad. Love the bass line and just how textural it all is. Feels like musical weather effects. The middle section really stands out for me.

By the way, what's a DPO? I mean what you used for the kick and bass. (Sorry if it's a stupid question.)

Thanks!  I was pretty chuffed with how this one turned out.  Just the opening girth and grit of the groove. Yum.

This is the DPO.  It's an analog complex oscillator.  Love it.

The 7-TET scale has a really interesting sound. Bass is unrelenting!

Excellent! Beautifully weird and effective. The slow beat works very nicely here...

Sounds great, I really hope I can get my modular tracks to sound this full one day. Excellent use of the Mysteron too.

Thanks man!  For that full sound, the DPO is killer.  Analog in all it's beautiful glory.  The digital Mysteron and Mangrove cuts through it all nicely.  Combo works well!

Thanks Vince. Appreciated!  I really loved it too.  Somewhat close to normal yet still far enough removed to sound totally unique.  Hopefully I'll get to experiment with that some more.

Sounds amazing! I don't know much about modular synths but what you got going here is top notch from a tonal and mood standpoint!

Love that raw karplus - perfect
