Synth layering and filtering

Hi guys. So I’ve spent quite a bit of time working on a way to create some richer sounds for the style of music I want to create. I wanted an easy way to layer multiple detuned oscillators/voices as well as simulate a cutoff envelope/lfo. I’ve included a link to what I’ve come up with below. However, I’m struggling to dial in the kinds of sounds I’m looking for and feel that I might be starting to enter a world of audio engineering that is just too far beyond me! I’d love to know if anyone else has tried and failed/succeeded in a similar endeavour. I’m starting to think I might be better off generating midi notes and sending them to a VST.

I made some ‘preset’ sounds using define and synth_default.
I have some organ and pad sounds, and something that resembles a rhodes piano.

The code is here:
