RING: Oscillator 2 will be used as a ring modulator. By adjusting "SEMI-
TONE" or "TUNE" you can create metallic sounds with little sense of pitch.
This is useful for sound effects.
OSC2 Wave
OSC1 Wave
Ring modulation generates the sum and difference of the oscillator 1 and 2
waveforms. For example, select a pulse wave (PULSE for oscillator 1) as
the oscillator, set "TRANSPOS" to 0, and "SEMITONE" to 24. Then you can
adjust "TUNE" to produce a clear bell-like sound. Using a virtual patch to
modulate "OSC2.TUNE" from an LFO or EG can also produce distinctive
results.
SYNC: An oscillator sync effect will be produced. This is convenient when
creating synth-lead sounds.
OSC2 Wave
Sync
OSC1 Wave
Oscillator sync is a type of modulation in which the phase of oscillator 2 is
forcibly synchronized to the phase of oscillator 1. For example, select a
sawtooth waveform for the oscillator, and raise the "OSC2 LVL" setting.
Then use "SEMITONE" or "TUNE" to change the pitch, and listen to the
result. This will be easier to notice if you raise the pitch of oscillator 2 higher
than oscillator 1. You can also produce interesting results by using a virtual
patch to modulate "OSC2.TUNE" from an LFO or EG.
RING.SYNC: This will apply both RING and SYNC modulation simultane-
ously.

Specifies the detuning (pitch difference) relative to oscillator 1, in semitone
steps over a range of plus or minus two octaves.
If you want to use the sound of oscillator 2 as a component in the oscilla-
NOTE
tor 1 overtone structure, try setting it one octave or a fifth higher than os-
cillator 1. If you want to use oscillator 2 in harmony, you can try intervals
such as a third, fourth, or fifth.
Specifies the amount of detune for OSC2 relative to OSC1. A setting of ±63
produces a pitch difference of ±2 octaves, and ±48 produces a pitch differ-
ence of ±1 octave. Values near 0 will make fine adjustments in the pitch.
If the oscillator 2 "OSC MOD" is set to SYNC, adjusting "SEMITONE" or
NOTE
"TUNE" will affect the pitch of the overtones. It will not change the pitch of
the fundamental.
These parameters adjust the volume balance of the oscillator 1 and 2, and
the noise generator. These settings will be the input level to the filter sec-
tion.
Sets the output level of oscillator 1.
Sets the output level of oscillator 2.
Sets the output level of the noise generator. This noise generator generates
white noise. This is independent of the white noise that can be selected as
a waveform for oscillator 1("WAVE": NOISE.) This does not have filter or
resonance as the oscillator 1 noise generator does, but you can use the
FILTER section to create the same results as the noise waveform of oscilla-
tor 1.
Noise is used to create percussion instrument sounds, or sound effects
such as surf.
