3dPdModular Synthesizer

Various Shapes


This oscillator can produce all four standard waveforms (sine, triangle, sawtooth, and square) and any shape in between those. All parameters are controllable either manually or by CV.

Various Shapes is a VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) that can produce the four basic waveforms (sine, triangle, sawtooth and square), and any state in between them. All parameters ( frequency, cross-fade between sine and triangle, slope curvature, triangle breakpoint) can be CV controlled.

The phase inlet of the module is special because it can receive an oscillator signal, in which case phase modulation happens, but if the incoming signal is a phasor, instead of phase modulation the oscillator will do phase syncing with the incoming master phasor! Syncing can be either hard (the oscillator resets is phase when the master oscillator starts a new cycle) or flip (the direction of the oscillator flips when the master oscillator starts a new cycle). The two syncing modes can be cross-faded with the “SYNC” potentiometer, or with a CV signal in the “SYNC” inlet.

A three position slide switch sets the frequency range of the oscillator, making it a high-range, mid-range oscillator, or an LFO!

Three outlets are included in the panel, one for the bipolar oscillator signal, one for a unipolar version of the oscillator, so it can be used as a CV signal, and one for its phasor, so it can act as a master oscillator, syncing other oscillator modules!

Note that you must have one MAIN module in your system!
