Well, for a start open up the demo patches in om and the smack patches
if you want to do some percussive stuff. Look at the om wiki that
explains stuff quite nicely. http://atte.dk/om-wiki Then read synth
secrets online on the sound on sound website.

Really great stuff there and it will help you to understand the basic
of modular synthesis. That with the example patches should have you
creating nice stuff. Add to the wiki as well so someone can learn from
your mistakes too! ;-)
