On the subject of plugins, I was just listening to a few of your (very
nice) tracked pieces on your website. In a couple of them it sounds
like you have a filter frequency automation (dn505 there is a 303-like
resonance tweak I think, and dumbstuff has a rising filter at the
beginning on the first bassline). I was not aware this sort of thing
was possible with Cheesetracker. Would you mind saying how it was
done? The only ways I could think of was by routing through jack rack
or a modular synth patch, but then I think you would have to record
the filtered track on its own as cheesetracker only has stereo
outputs, or alternatively by tweaking the plugins live?

All the best,
