Next you need to run oscillators into your filters. I suggest you check
out Miller's documentation as it clearly explains how Pd works and what
it's all about.

There was a minimoog created in Pd once as part of a university course
somewhere.  It seemed pretty cool and you can control it with midi. I
don't have the link but I am pretty sure it's on the puredata plone
site somewhere.

For analogue sounding oscillators I highly recommend Roman's
blosc~ abstractions. They sound beautiful when filtered. Search the list
archives to find them.
