Mod Matrix :

Source Desination Parameter Amount
LFO1 Filter Cutoff 100
XYPad1X Filter Cutoff 100 (not that important but gives a manual way to control filter)
XYPad1Y Filter Q 100
XYPad2X LFO1 Rate 100 (very important this is controls the wobble)
XYPad2Y LFO1 Amount 100 (very important this controls the wobble amount)

And I have the effects off

On the Performance Page :

Send FX Reverb : to taste
Leave the XY Pad 1 at X 0 and Y 0 unless you want to add some of your own manual cutoff.
XY Pad 2 is your wobble control. start at about X 20-30 and Y 70-80 and move it around to taste, and of course automate this in your sequence or record your automation.

Also one tip, if you want a grungy bass without killing your kicks, make some nice tones with these settings with no wobble, and resample them, then apply high pass filter to them to take the bass out, and use the sample instead of the OSC. and pair it together with a nice deep sine wave on another eden, play the same notes, and you will get that classic dubstep deep bass with wobble. I used this approach here. -(of course with 1.2 we won’t need to resample, just add eq to the fx chain)
