A great trick to add some variation is to link the speed of the LFO to pitch, so it increases as you play up the keyboard. Load Dune CM and initialise the patch by clicking the Bank B button. Turn the Osc
Mix dial to 50%, then turn the Osc 3 Level dial to max. Thicken things up by turning the Voices and Spread dials to max.
Turn the Detune dial to 10% to detune the unison layers. It’s thick, but it’s too bright – so drop the Filter Cutoff down to around 65%. Now head to the Output section and select Mono, and turn the Glide control up to around 90% to slide between notes. Now move to LFO 1 and Sync it to your host’s tempo.
Move the LFO Rate dial to 1/16T to set the LFO’s base speed. Now in the Mod Matrix, Set slot 1’s Source to LFO 1, Amount to +20 and Destination to Filter Cutoff – this makes the LFO wobble the filter. In slot 2, set source to Note #, Amount to +50 and Destination to LFO 1 Rate to make the LFO rate increase with note pitch.
