I've fallen pretty hard for the 300 series in the past few months. It defines words like "mojo" and oozes character. To me, it has been the easiest modular to program and understand right away. Everything seems to gel very nicely together.
Also, the sound is MASSIVE! It's hard to describe, but it has so much depth and power. It can make all my other synths sound like weak bitches in comparison. It plays nice though too, and very beautifully at that (WFC=sex).
I recently acquired one of the old 311 controllers with the voltmeter from an awesome fellow wiggler, and it has opened up a whole new level of the system. I didn't realize how expressive joysticks could be! Okay enough drunken ranting. :guinness:
Here's some all Wiard stuff I've made so far, I'll post more as they come.

Some really great stuff in here. The second track on here is some of the best recorded Wiard audio I've heard before.

Awesome, thanks!
On Wiardmelt4 I had the epiphany of using the Dual Mixolator to pan a stereo signal two different directions in serial using different modulations on the different sections. *mind-blown*
I did that with both the tracks I layered and it ended up sounding huge!

Lush reedy FM action. :yay:
That's really beautiful timbre and patch behaviour. One of the nicest Wiard demos I've heard.
Reverb is also very good, which did you use?

Thanks! The Waveform City is really something else.
It's a combination of the RE-301 and Valhalla VintageVerb.

Wow. This is really nice. Thanks for posting. Always had a soft spot for Wiard and hoping one day I can get a 300 system. Even more so now, haha.

One take, waveform city into a broken Mutron Phasor into the dual filter while doing two different kinds of stereo panning in the dual mixolator.
