Have a play around and see what sounds turn up, its always good for a bit of inspiration for new presets.

You should see all your modules again on screen, also notice at the bottom the display says. Some polyphonic synths on the market are plain CPU drains as each and every voice consumes resources all of the time.
It is very customiseable, as you can even specify the maximum polyphony, and both the note stealing and note protection algorithms you need for your specific biddule.
Its job is to listen for all notes that enter it and dynamically dispatch each and every note it receives to one of the clones.
Thanks for that, never thought about this. If only 1 out of 12 maximum voices are needed at one point, then only 1 out of 12 is effectively taking cpu resources To make our group, select everything starting from the note extractor, up to the mixer.
