After quite a lot of times of getting 'close to acid' but not quite, I finally found a winning patch! Missing link was my new MS20 filter which really has the extra coloring to bring the 303 vibes in. Also used a freshly build diy compressor that helped color the high end too of the acid lead. Oscillator is a dead simple triangle wave (its acid after all). SEQ8 through Quantizer fixes the pitch, while topograph's third channel fixes the gates. This gives it that weird wobbling pseudo-glide feel that translates very well into the acid. I split the signal in two, one half going straight to the output, the other going through my compressor and to the output. Than i fade both in and out for parts with less or more low end. Oh and they go through the delay module as well.
Now only to get a slew module for some true acid slide mayhem!
Kick is the FMOS with a very short env for the pitch. On top of the kick, there is an extra higher square tone through the wasp, also with a short env on the filter. Gives it just the extra thump to make it knock.
Snare is a bit bland (but i ran out of filters!!!!), just white noise through a vca. In retrospect should have blended in some tone with this one!
'Hihatts' are also controlled by the same gates as the lead, coming from the algodrone through a short decay. I let them go loose in the ending section, giving some more industrial sounds!
Everything through the SVFilter for some small small extra coloring.
I want this compressor! Could you post some schematics for this?
I used a cheap pcb clone of the Ross Compressor, which in itself is an adapted, more stable version of the MXR Dyna Comp. Here is the schematic of the pcb. And here is a more comprehensive electrosmash breakdown of the core of the circuit.
It all functions around one LM13700 used as VCA, which 'compresses' itself through feedback from an envelope follower circuit (made of some transistors and leds). All standard parts tho if you have a LM13700 laying around!

Glad you enjoyed it!! Def was going for that warehouse feel, last big show I went to before lockdown was 999999999 (and more: KRTM, Kobosil!) at Rimbu @ Kompass. Was definetely trying to channel that vibe.
But like you dropped in another thread earlier, the huge mainstream succes of techno, and harder techno, can be quite weird at times. I felt out of place at some shows before too, between the coked out fitness bro's and business techno suits. But at the other hand its getting a lot of new blood in the community and making a lot of 'smaller' parties possible! It just feels like two parallel fanbases sometimes haha.
Bro's are imho ruining music for everyone, whether it's techno or sludgemetal, the moment bro's enter venue you better brace yourself for some testosterone driven douchebaggery. After all they managed to kill Dubstep as a genre.
