I’m very excited to start working with Waldorf Largo! It's shares 98% of it's architecture with Blofeld so it's been great experience to work with the architecture in soft synth form. I’ve actually created quite a few patches and thought I’d share one of my more crazy atmospheric patches called “Dolphin Jump Gate” as it shows off the awesome comb filter and FM on the Largo.
I have the filters setup in “Serial” mode. Filter 1 is a comb filter which colors the sound and Filter 2 is low pass to control brightness.
- Velocity controls Filter 2’s envelope velocity. Since filter 2 is set to a high-pass filter there more velocity you play with the brighter the overall sound.
- Mod Wheel controls intensity of LFO1 which modulates Cutoff for Filter 1. Sweeping modulation cause a shearing effect. Mod Wheel also modulates Filter 1 panning.
Try playing some chords to create sub-harmonic “beating” effect. Turn the FM paramer up for Oscillator 3 to get even more sparkle.
