Patch 010 - ADK Shaker

In a similar vein to Patch 009, I have pilfered all the settings for this shaker patch from a stock
factory patch for the Subtractor synth in Reason. Although I actually lifted the settings from the Tamburine (sic) patch, you'll see in my write-up of the next patch (actually a tambourine!) that these two patches are very similar.

Starting with the init patch, I dialed in a typical percussion amp envelope (instant attack, no sustain, moderate decay / sustain) and switched Osc 1 to noise with a bit of built in LPF that Osc 1 provides. I then added a high pass filter with a lot of resonance (thanks Subtractor for the settings!). It is already starting to sound shaker-like, but not quite. I didn't like the sharp attack and after slowing this down a touch the sound suddenly sounded just like a shaker. Finally, this patch was really quiet so I added more noise through the mixer and we were done.

Here are the settings (starting from init, shift+3):
