PoiZone - Oscillators

Oscillators

Oscillators are the basic sound sources of a synthesizer, Poizone has 2 Oscillators (A and B) and one 'Noise' source. Oscillators A and B generate SAW or PULSE shapes that can be futher modified. All Oscillator modulations are applied to OSC A, so that OSC A is a carrier and OSC B is a modulator for RM and SYNC operations (as described below). OSC B always generates an unmodulated sound - for example, this is why OSC B has controls for pitch while OSC A does not. These features together with 'Unison' in the Master Controls section and the Effects Section allow Poizone to quickly and easily create thick, lush textures or cutting leads.

BALANCE

The knobs in the 'BALANCE' section are used to mix between Oscillator A, B and the Noise source.
