An obscure clue indeed, given that you provide no link to the track you mention, nor even your SoundCloud home page. Nor Vimeo.
We need to connect Rings to a social media account to unlock its full feature set?
Here is @fourhexagons Vimeo video. I appreciate the full patch layout in the description.
Thanks, audiohoarder. And oh man, BennelongBicyclist, point taken. The Vimeo channel is here: https://vimeo.com/channels/modularsynthesis
It’s maybe this
I tried this on my rings, on ominous voice(green light flashing) with damping and brithness full and the even ouput into the in, and you’ll have a nasty oscillator
Thanks to fourhexagons for the green light
Bmhot: I'm pretty sure that's just the FM modulator (sent out of Even, while the FM product is sent out of Odd) being sent into the audio input, with Position adding frequency or phase feedback. It is nasty for sure, but I don't think this is an Easter egg. Doesn't sound likefourhexagons’s demo, anyway, which had a flavor of Braids’ HARMS model.
Someone should do a “Hot or Not?”-style MI “Feature or Easter Egg?” website.
t2k: Why not letpapernoise know about that thought?
you mean a website with Easters Eggs to get the MI Ester Eggs ?
Who knew that Stereolab had early access to a Peaks prototype?
OMG! They also had early access to Rings’ Easter Egg!
Fully expect the next Boards of Canada LP to be full of MI sounds, when it’s released in 3-5 more yrs…!
EDIT; oooh off by 2 days but here it is, BoC remix of Mike Patton with some modular noise that could be MI! At 3:40 and on…
That sample /recordings been available for donkeys on connet and irdial project lots of good ones there but nice one bb
pichenettes> OMG! They also had early access to Rings’ Easter Egg!
That’s a clue! Come on Rings wranglers, find the Easter egg, before Easter.
The krautrock training soundtrack is a hoax, but a tasteful one
Oh wow, Rings’ Easter egg is machine consciousness?? Might be tricky to administer the Turing test with those 2 buttons…

Um, maybe, but the real clue is buried somewhere in the Stereolab oeuvre. Maybe it’s a recreation of a Jenny Ondioline? Or a French disko [sic].
Hmm. Judging by Olivier’s reaction to that clip posted, I’m going to guess that ring’s super secret mode is an organ/tone wheel emulator. Oh, and now I’m in the mood to play some stereolab.
Am I warm in guessing that there are more concrete clues in this document? http://www.keith-snook.info/manufacturers-averts/HFS69-Stereo-Test-Disc.pdf
