Experimentation is the key.

That's what makes synthesisers such fun.

Just an idea, maybe try an LFO with S/H.

Looks like in the first video he's using the ARP 1613 sequencer running very fast doing the notes in a random order, triggering high pitches on the 2600. Very like what Zamise suggested with the LFO sample and hold, except it's not random as you're limited to 16 notes max. Pretty cool :)

I'd imagine Jarre used the Synthi AKS for this though? Same functionality, pretty much.
