143-1 drone

I'm playing a modular duo set with Andy Ortmann tonight, and will be including this 143-1 patch in my bag of sounds:

I read about it on the forum last year or so, and bring it out whenever I'm looking for a steady, subtle 4-note drone, with control over pitch and mix of tones. If you've got a 143-1 (and you should! One of the true Doepfer gems) and are looking for a brighter option, take the End of Attack outs (square waves) and mix them externally-- this is available simultaneous to the more subdued Mix Out drone, by the way.

The forums are littered with interesting 143-1 patches... I'll put together a compilation post of them soon!
