I’ve been playing around with the demo of Bazille which just released and thought I’d share a little experiment to help illustrate how basic patching works. Click the image above to pop it up in another windows.
In this patch called “FM Shred” I’m using OSC 2 to frequency modulate OSC1. Here it is step-by-step
- I patch the output of OSC2 to the pitch of OSC1 and turn the bi-polar gain knob left so it take the pitch down.
- I patch ENV2 to control the volume of OSC2.
- I patch the groovy sequencer to modulate this pitch of OSC2 so do some motion. I switch “Time Base” to Hertz, and then use the divide button to slow it down a bit. I programmed a few step (rotate the knob to create a series of steps to morph between).
- I map LFO1 to modulate the Sequencer and turn up the gain on the end-point so that the LFO causes the Sequencer to rotate and morph between steps.
- I patch ENV3 to the filter and turn up the gain and patch LP12 to the main OUT 1.
- I patch the output of OSC1 to the filter.
- Finally (see image below) , sweeten things up a bit, I switch to the “TWEAKS & FX” tab, turn on the delay and adjust delay params.
Bazille’s special introductory price of $89 (+ VAT in the EU) has been extended until October 15. After that, the regular price is $129 (+ VAT in the EU).

Indeed FM can sound like aliasing – and I do love gnarly sounds like this – obviously – lol.
Awesome you produced a horrible aliasing sound with bazille.
