This is a variation on patch 2. with a bit more emphasis on the sequencer.
Many thanks to Benge for his awesome ARP 2500 videos.
In particular this one on the ARP Mix Sequencer module (the 1050).
Here is a pic of the 1050 module.
It's basically a 8 channel mixer. The channels can be divided into 2x4, 1x8, 1x7,1x6,etc
The cool thing is that they are gated to the sequencer so can be triggered on cue to the rhythm.
There are some eurorack modules (sort of like this) out there, but at the moment nothing as expressive (in my opinion). So there is a challenge to you budding analog engineers out there.
who lovingly restored this grand lady. Great job guys
