Werkstatt and Olegtron 4060

I've spent the last few days playing with my new Olegtron 4060 and my Werkstatt and thought I'd give it a mention here as these two go really well together. The first video below give a good overview of what the Olegtron is if you don't already know. The second give a good feel for what it's like to work with in practice.

The interest with the Werkstat is that it gives you at least two channels of modulation output directly on patch wires that can be linked straight into the Moog as long as you share a common ground. These effectively operate as two complex LFO's and give easy access to a wide range of timbral and rhythmic variations to broaden the palate of your Werkstatt. If you breakout onto a breadboard you've got even more room to experiment and combine with the example projects.

Combined with some of my other CV sources this has really taken my Werkstatt to a new level.

Strangely, given how well they work together, I can't find any videos of the Werkstatt and the Olegtron. Working together The video below however gives a good idea of the type of modulation produced although in this case it's going into the VCF in on a small Eurorack system.

This uses only one channel of modulation and is connected by the mini jack out rather than the direct patching that can be used with the Werkstatt.

The octave divider works like a clock divider on a modular making simple synced modulations easy. Once you start adding components however it can get a bit crazy.

The biggest challenge I have just now is getting some control over the level of modulation but it's a lot of fun if you like strange noises... :)
