Some tips I've learnt in my week of ownership:

- If you find the output of your Blofeld is too quiet on your patches you wrote from 'Init', find the Amplification page (quickest way is to hit the button that takes you to FX and then scroll the main page wheel backwards) and turn down "Velocity". This was bugging me for days!!
- Many standard modulation destinations have their own internal slot for choosing a modulation source and depth (for example filter frequency, osc pitch, amplification) - use them instead of dedicated modulation slots
- the 'Init' patch has both FX set to 'on' but mix set to '0'. I don't know if the DSP shortcuts "mix=0" to "don't compute", but just to be safe consider turning them to "bypass" if they're unused to save CPU.
