Very interesting. But [envrms~] makes the patch work, rather than breaking it in this case. If you look inside the two [clinok_x~] units you'll see that the noise/filter section of the synthesizer on the left _without_ [envrms~] connected does not work!
[envrms~] is only connected "sideways" in fact - it does not play a part in the realisation of any signal or control parameter in this synth, so why it should cause the patch to work is quit baffling. It is as though [envrms~] is acting as a valve on the outlet of the [clip~] object, like siphoning petrol from an engine by sucking on a pipe.
