Synth Secrets – Oscillator Sync

May 9, 2011

When two oscillators are hard-synchronised, then if the master frequency is lower than the slave frequency, changing the pitch of the slave changes the timbre of the output.

Now, the Waldorf Pulse: attack 0 means 1.9ms. 1.9ms is equal to around 523 Hz with this simple calculation: 1 divided by seconds = Hz So: 1 / 0.0019 is around 523 Hz. This in turn means: you can hear a click in the attack phase that has a maximum frequency of 523Hz which is already easily noticable. When you now turn the amp attack rate to 1, you have 2 x 1.9ms = 3.8ms = 261Hz. Ah, that’s hollower. But still too bright when you play a low and hollow bass sound. When you e.g. play a hollow bass sound with around 80Hz base frequency, you have to make sure that the attack envelope is no shorter than 12.5ms to prevent *any* click. And this is an amp attack value of around 6 on the Pulse!!

Waldorf Pulse – patch editors

VST-AU Pulse Editorā„¢

A real-time MIDI synth editor that allows you full control of every parameter of the sound on the Waldorf Pulse.

Looks nice but a bit pricey at 70 clams. I’ve made an X-station map and it’s working nice, but I need the precision provided by a software editor. That said, there are not many parameters, so I could knockĀ something-up in Synthmaker.

On the other hand, there is this free (non-VST) editor from Granucon.

Having lots of fun with the Pulse – very expressive monosynth that begs to be tweaked. The filter sings!
