Well, suppose you have a set of filters in parallel. One way of coupling them would be to add a small amount of Output A to Input B, etc. Don’t recall this being done in an analog synth context. I think this would work best if there were nonlinearities in the filter response, though. Linear coupling might be a weak effect. Just some thoughts, haven’t tried anything like this.
