As was the case with the Subtractor, Malström patches are organized by their intended use, including the following: Bass FX Mono synths Pads Of course, none of these presets is set in stone, so to speak. You can modify a poly synth patch to be used as a pad, or a mono synth patch to be used as a bass synth.

You can select a graintable either by using the scroll buttons of the graintable display or by clicking on the display itself. If you click on the display, a pop-up menu will appear, displaying a very long list of available graintables to choose from (see Figure 10.3).
