Here's an old, but enjoyable, video on creating a sequence on a range of really nice vintage equipment. Seeing him juggle 1/4" patch leads across such large distances makes you remember how lucky we are, especially when his doesn't quite reach
Pretty much everything he does can be translated onto the AE Modular (although in some cases, we'll have to wait until a few more modules arrive). Happy Watching.
I had the good fortune to get to play with an ARP 2500 while staying at a mate's home a while ago. The patch matrix is super easy to learn. My little patch doesn't sound as good as in the video above though.
After this experience I actually like my AE Modular even more because it can do all the things that the ARP can and doesn't take up half my wall at home!
