all right, thanks for your help guys, the last suggestion sounds for me 
mostly interesting, since i dont have any hw-synth here, so i got finaly 
smack making sound now, for the fisrst time.
in the moment, there are sn808 and sn 909 running, triggerd by gneutronica.

i ll experiment with this now for longer and make some more comments, 
thanks a lot for the support and cheers,

ps. i think it is not very easy to handle with, but enormous sound!
