I just got my Neutron today. What can I say? It's awesome!
Found a weird quirk that I can't quite figure out if it's like this on all of them or just on mine.. but the Width knob (for pulse width) on both oscillators are interlinked somehow, both affecting each other's oscillators pulse width. This is only true for the actual square/pulse though, not the "tone mod" shape.
Anyhow, here is a 11 minute+ jam with a simple arp melody
from the Arturia Keystep. If you scroll through various sections of the jam you'll notice quite quickly how incredibly versatile this thing is. I'm mainly tweaking filter, osc mix, filter mod depth, envelope depth, drive, VCA bias (for my resonance trick explained a bit later), resonance and both ADSR controls. I also mess around with the BB delay a bit. The basic thing about this patch is the LFO (unipolar) triggering both envelopes and the LFO is being synced from the host/keystep. It's a variable shape, somewhere in between the triangle and saw which brings a nice softish additional modulation to the filter when needed.
The resonance trick: I have envelope 2 inverted through an attenuator going into the resonance modulation. This way the resonance is always less when the filter envelope is fully "open" and more when the release stage happens.
Another specialty that I explore a bit later on in the jam is shape modulation of oscillator 2 by the LFO (through an attenuator so that I can control the intensity). This brings a really interesting texture to the oscillator which is set one octave above the first oscillator.
This is jam, a sound demo for people who wonder about the sound character and "weight" of the Neutron in more traditional roles. We all know it can do crazy ass glitchy stuff really well but I'm extremely pleased at how good it is for basic synth sound duties with it's own very distinct tonality. It's safe to say that I have absolutely nothing in my arsenal (plugin nor hardware) that sounds like it. This makes the Neutron extremely valuable in my opinion and this alone is bound to make it a future classic.
Here's The 11 minute jam
. The only additional effect added was a very simple 8th note ping/pong delay from Soundtoys Echoboy Jr (which I'm fading in at the beginning) and Pro-L2 catching a few stray peaks at the output of the mixbus. Everything else is 100% Neutron without any EQ or compression. This is about as vanilla as it gets. Recorded with my RME BabyFace Pro.
