That's a nice idea too, like the sound example I guess in this setting the s/h will sample the key (respectively the cv of the key) you're playing when you hit the footswitch and hold it (for osc 2) until you hit it again - while osc 1 "moves" as you play (indeed nice with portamento). Great!Denms20 wrote:To compound on this a bit, I used to use a patch similar where I had a footswitch hooked to the S&H instead of the keyboard trigger. Then pull osc. 1's mixer all the way down so you just have osc. 2 and adjust the footage a bit (I'll have to find the patch diagram for this). What happens is it plays kind of like a PWM type sound until you lay on the footpedal. Then it makes the one osc. stay put, and the other moves, causing all kinds of harmonic tension. Then add long portamento and you really have some ripping sounds.pflosi wrote:a very funny trick with the MS20, the poor man's duophony patch. it's not only useful with ring mod, but particularly funny with it:
KBD CV out -> S/H in
KBD trig out -> S/H clock
S/H out -> VCO2 CV in
with this patch, the second osc will always play the note you played before. E.g. if you play a G, and then a C, the second osc will play a G when you play the C and this gives you a fifth chord.
this is very nice with the ring mod engaged.
There's an example here:

Also, another hint regarding ring modulation on the MS20: it's hardwired to the PW wave on osc 1, so regardless of the setting on osc 1, the ring mod is always osc 1 PW +/- osc 2. I say this because the pulsewidth setting on osc 1 changes the timbre for ring mod quite a bit even if only osc 2 ring mod is activated (i.e. mixed in on the mixer section), so don't forget to always mess with that
