    Basically wondering what kind of things i can do to give my pad some more 'feel' to it. Dont know to much about the ES2 apart from LFO modulation and envelope modulation really. Cheers!

    This is for a Dubstep tune BTW. More of a Skream like tune

    Like movement? Try to familiarize yourself with the vector mode, I find it can be really powerful but it's kind of hard to get your mind around.

    At the bottom of the ES2 there are a set of macro control knobs. Experiment with the knobs and automate them, you'll be surprised with the results.
