The "other side" of syncing

Post by briandc » Fri Jun 03, 2016 12:01 pm

Hi all!
Usually, on subtractive instruments, I have come to do syncing like this:

set osc 1 to sine
set osc 2 to square-pulse
activate sync
detune osc 2 up a couple of octaves
set the osc mix to only osc 2
modulate the pitch of osc 2 (either by LFO or pitch envelope, if available)

to get this:

BUT,
if I modulate the pitch of osc 1 instead of osc 2, I get a result like this:

:)

Indeed! My wife even got scared..!

Of course, if this synth had a pitch envelope, or a way to control pitch detuning through velocity or aftertouch... there'd be more control..
