(edit: replayed demo adding a 3rd patch)

Playing around on 2 A6 Andromeda patches I made last year. The SoundCloud compression is a bit brutal on these analog sounds... they are a lot juicier normally but this gives a good idea...

The first one is my main "learning" patch I made to explore and learn the general parameters and modulation routing on the A6. These multi destination modulations are set on Pitch Wheel, Mod Wheel and Aftertouch. A small detail I like is that when the modulations raise the resonance and LFO energy, volume is also lowered slightly at the same rate... so the more energetic effect is not in your face quite as much as it could be. I love on the A6 how the Pitch Bend Wheel can have fully different ranges and routings for down and up. On this patch, the down bend detunes the layers and the up just shoots all of it up a whole octave with no other modulation.

The second is another I made soon after. Not a lot of modulation but I like how the filter suddenly reduces on the key off at a rate faster than the amp envelope. Gives a springy key off sound.

Third one uses the "Peak" method of getting a faster LFO by using an envelope in looping mode. It's kind of hard to route etc but it's usable. Here is some high speed modulation.
