"Heavily modulated bass patch using one Z3000 oscillator with other two cross modulating each other and the filter parameters. The final output is processed with a Fold Processor and filtered with Z2040 low pass filter and a VCA on the output. A couple of Z4000s are modulating the filter frequency and the VCA. Z8000 is used to sequence the main
