The Audio Mod feature
One of Absynth's very cool features is the possibility to intermodulate parameters so that e.g. the amplitude/loudness of one Oscillator will affect other parameters, be it of the source Oscillator itself or a parameter of one of the other Oscillators. Try e.g. loading a loop with sharp transients into Osc 1 or make up a samplejump sequence slicing up a sample and then modulate the pitch, the filter Cutoff Frequency or any other parameter available in Channel B or C by using Osc A as the modulation source (see screenshot).
I will post some more patches making use of this great feature within the next days, I keep on using it, also in soundscapes and experimental sounds as it makes the patches become much more alive and dynamic.
