Hello all,

I am a very happy, proud new owner of the Take 5. So far, I'm really, really enjoying it!

However, I could really use some help making a patch that shows off the Filter Drive. In some cases, it feels like the knob is backwards (drive present all the way CCW), other times it feels even less useful than the Audio Mod on the Rev2 (which at least can make a difference in a patch.

I know it's early days, but I sure would like some confirmation that something isn't wrong with this feature.

Anyway, back to noodling and playing with all the fresh mod sources!

EDIT: More noodling answered my question. Drive can be heard best when the filter Resonance is up high and you're sending OSC 1 or OSC 2 through it. It sounds like it "knocks the peak" off of the resonance and reduces the self-oscillation... But that's not entirely true because with no input into the filter or just OSC 1 Sub, the filter doesn't quite behave that way.
