1 Turn on the Noise os­cil­la­tor and se­lect the S-Sound set­ting. Mod­u­late the Level us­ing a cus­tom LFO to pro­duce a shak­ing rhythm, set­ting the LFO mode to Trig so notes restart the mod­u­la­tion. Use a com­plex Chaos 2 LFO to mod­u­late the Noise Level fur­ther and add ran­dom­ness.

2 Ac­ti­vate Osc B, choose Har­mon­icSeries as the wave­form, and ap­ply rhyth­mic Level mod­u­la­tion. A saw-shaped sec­ond LFO is then used to mod­u­late the Pan of Osc B, adding stereo width. Sub­tle Drive and Fattening is then ap­plied via a High 12 fil­ter.

3 Ef­fects are then added to the patch: Di­men­sion, stereo De­lay and Re­verb all add fur­ther in­ter­est and stereo width, and an EQ tames un­wanted lows and highs. Fi­nally, all four Macro con­trols are as­signed to Osc and FX pa­ram­e­ters, pro­vid­ing tonal mod­i­fi­ca­tion on the fly.
