DFAM-FOs patch for the Moog Subharmonicon

Simple patch to demonstrate how to use an external CV sequencer, such as the Moog DFAM, to essentially add LFOs to the Subharmonicon. This patch uses the PITCH of the DFAM to give vibrato, and the VELOCITY from the DFAM for tremolo. In the sample audio, it ends with the unmodulated Subharmonicon sequence so you can see just how much sound shaping this allows.

  1. Tune VCO 1, SUBs, and SEQUENCER 1 to a basic pattern, as desired.
  2. Patch DFAM VELOCITY OUT to Subharmonicon CUTOFF IN.
  3. Patch DFAM PITCH OUT to Subharmonicon VCO 1 IN.
  4. Tune PITCH pots on the DFAM to 12 o'clock on each step, and give a TINY bit of variation, from 1-4 with a slight rise, and 5-8 returning to the start position.
  5. Tune VELOCITY pots on the DFAM starting at 9 o'clock on step one, gradually rise to step 3 at 11 o'clock, then gradually back to 9 o'clock on step 5. Steps 6, 7, & 8 are full off.
  6. Start with a very fast tempo on the DFAM, between 12 and 1 o'clock. You have essentially shaped two seperate CV "waves" running at low frequences to provide modulation to the Subharmonicon.
  7. Tinker and enjoy.
