Oscillator sync is a popular effects for creating edgy synth leads.
ON (up position): With this type of modulation, the phase of oscillator 2 is forc-
ibly synchronized to the phase of oscillator 1. This adds harmonic overtones to
the frequency of oscillator 2, making a complex waveform.

Ring Modulation outputs the sum and difference of the frequencies created by
the two oscillators. Adjust the pitch of Oscillator 2 to create non-tonal and me-
ON (up position): Oscillator 1 is used to ring modulate oscillator 2.
The mixer is used to set the relative levels of the three signal sources—
Oscillator 1, Oscillator 2, and the Noise generator before they enter the
VCO 1 knob
VCO 2 knob
These knobs control the output levels of oscillator 1 and 2.
Use this knob to set the output level of the noise generator.
Noise (white noise) can be used on its own, or mixed with the Oscilla-
tors to create percussion instrument sounds, or sound effects such as surf.
