Picking up this thread again.

I have tried the various suggestions and it has definitely made the bass 
more sound fuller. However, The sound being generated is a constant 
drone or pulse. Fluctuating, rhythmic and melodic but still constant.

Does anyone have a tip for making the bass stop at set times.

For the purposes of this experiment I am using this chain:

Trigger->envelope->wavetable->moog filter->oscillator->compressor-output

Which creates a sound like this:

While this is actually quite a desirable sound for me I would also like 
to be able to trigger when it stops, not just when it starts.

Apparently upon the beginning of the barrage, the donkey broke 
discipline and panicked, toppling the cart. At that point, the rockets 
disconnected from the timer, leaving them strewn around the street. 
Tethered to the now toppled cart, the donkey was unable to escape before 
the arrival of U.S. troops.
