This video explores ways to use Subharmonicon’s patchbay to expand the functionality of the instrument.
The biggest advantage to semi-modular synthesizers is the ability to quickly alter the way an instrument works through the use of patching. Subharmonicon’s 32-point patchbay allows users ways to expand, change, or rearrange what the instrument is capable of doing. The oscillators, suboscillators, filter, VCA, rhythm knobs, envelope triggering, and clocking are all controllable via inputs in the patchbay. Simultaneously, users can access outputs for the CV and Gate signals of both sequencers, the global polyrhythmic trigger pattern, master clock, both envelopes, and the individual outputs of all six oscillators. Exploring Subharmonicon’s patchbay can be a nice way to find new inspiration, as well as teach your instrument a few fun new tricks!
