The MiniBrute patchbay can route one element into another, but it’s also sometimes useful to simply break a pre-set routing. Osc 2, for example, is pre-routed to follow the pitch of Osc 1, but sometimes it’s useful to break this tracking, such as when using Osc 2 as an LFO. You can do this by patching one end of a lead into an input – in this case, Osc 2 Pitch – without connecting the other end to a modulation source. On the flipside of this, patching into an output won’t necessarily break the pre-set routing of that signal – eg. taking a modulation output from ADSR Out won’t affect the ADSR envelope’s routing to the filter.
