Waveform Module

The waveform module manages the voice oscillators. Each voice is comprised of 3 oscillators:

  • Osc1 – Center
  • Osc 2 & 3 – Side, one panned hard left and and the other panned hard right

Controls

Osc1 Page
  • Osc1 Waveform – selects the waveform for the centre oscillator
  • Blend – sets the balance between Osc1 (top) and Osc 2/3 (bottom)
  • FM Width / Intensity – applies FM synthesis to the centre waveform
Osc 2/3 Page
  • Osc2/3 Waveform – selects the waveform for the side oscillators
  • x2 – Doubles (raises by 1 octave) the pitch of the sideĀ oscillators
  • Width – Applies detuning to osc 2 & 3, top is 1/2 a semitone, bottom is unity
  • FM Width / Intensity – applies FM synthesis to the side waveform

Tips

  • FM synthesis is most musical on smooth waveforms on the vertical lines.
  • FM synthesis on waveforms with discontinuitiesĀ  can be used to create noise.
