What others would I need to get started?
Braids has a built in VCA so you wouldn't necessarily need something like that right away. You should probably have something to control pitch, whether that's a sequencer, keyboard with cv, function generator, whatever. I'm looking into using a LPF with my braids, because some tones can be very bright and an LPF can always be used to great effect. Modulation and trigger sources are a good idea, as well. Some wavetables require a trig input, I believe, though they can be set to auto-trigger on pitch change.
