Subject: Re: [motm] Wiard Mini Wave as a 3rd VCO

Weird. I just got through turning my MiniWave off and found this email from
you... (cue Twilight Zone intro...)

I'm waiting on my MOTM 300 which is backordered, but I finished building the
420 a couple of hours ago. I set up a patch using the MiniWave, the 420, my
recently built 110 VCA and my not so recently built 800 EG. I used an SH101
as the sound generator and the 800 +OUT to sweep the 420 and the 800 -OUT to
sweep through the wavetable in the MiniWave. I must say that I'm very
impressed! I used the envelope on the SH101 set to a slow attack which cause
some crunchy digital noise to show up due to too low of an input (I guess).
Sounded pretty cool!

Can't wait to get the 300 in to show the MiniWave who's boss! : )
