WAVE
[Saw, Square, Triangle, Sine, Vox,
DWGS, Noise, Audio In]
Selects the waveform for oscillator 1.
Saw Wave (
):
This is a sawtooth wave. This wave-
form is shaped like the tooth of a
saw, and contains a rich overtone
spectrum.
You can use this to create numer-
ous instrumental sounds such as
string and brass sounds, or typical
analog synth sounds such as synth
bass or synth brass.
Square Wave (
):
This is a square wave. It has a rectan-
gular shape, and strictly speaking is
actually square only when the top and
bottom of the waveform have the same
width (a "pulse width" of 50%). If the
pulse width is other than 50%, this is
also called a pulse wave.
A square wave is used for woodwind
sounds such as clarinet, and for
wooden percussion sounds. A pulse
wave is used for plucked-string
sounds and reed-type sounds.

3. OSC1
(Oscillator 1)
The oscillator generates the waveform that is the basis of the sound.
The timbre has two oscillators. The settings in this section are for oscillator 1. "WAVE" (knob 1) selects the basic waveform for oscillator 1,
and "CONTROL 1" (knob 2) and "CONTROL 2" (knob 3) modify the waveform. For example if you set "WAVE" to Saw (
"CONTROL 1" value will modify the sound, changing the waveform as shown in figure 3-1. Adjusting "CONTROL 2" will apply LFO1
modulation to the waveform specified by "CONTROL 1," producing additional change.

    I couldn't get separate keys for my miro korg.

    I had to buy the whole key assemble

    ​I needed one ocatave of white keys
