Oscillator A uses a sine-wave generator and a choice of triangle, saw or pulse, whilst oscillator B uses pulse and triangle generators.
Each oscillator has a variable shape, it is also possible to add drift to the waveform adding greatly to the harmonic content, the outputs of both oscillators are also hard wired to a Ring Modulator with its own output to the mixer.
Each oscillator can be set to track midi data or run in free flow mode.
As well as generating multiple waveforms and ring modulation each oscillator can receive modulation from the VLF Multi Generator and it's independent LFO, plus the Tuned Noise Generator can be used as a modulation source.
The Vintage Generator is a polyphonic design, but the way that the oscillators respond to midi data can be changed between Poly, Mono and Unison.
Switchable hard sync will lock the oscillators together in phase, allowing the modulation and sync sources to still take effect.
VG-1A is used in WRAITH-SQR and VG-1B is used in WARITH-MINI.
The VLF's two waveform generators produce triangle/sine (switchable) and pulse (de-tuneable) and have the same variable shape and drift capabilities.
It can be set to track midi or free run.
The VLF's LFO runs independently and is used as an additional modulation source, it's frequency can be effected by the VLF.
The output destinations for modulation are osc a-b, vlf a-b plus filter cutoff of Ladder Mode.
It also has it's own output the mixer.
Sequencer Sixteen - Seq 16 M
The sequencer will run in poly, mono and unison modes, but it will only generate mono information.
The SEQ 16 M is the master control of the sequencer and is used to adjust the overall settings of gate, touch and timbre, clock rate is adjustable against the main tempo and the direction of the sequencer is also adjustable, any number of steps can be set from 1 to 16, plus you can offset the start position and activate random.
On WRAITH-SQR the poly, mono, unison and glide controls are placed here, they move over to the Vintage Generator for WRAITH-MINI.
Each of the 8 steps alters the glide and pitch of any note information active at that point, each step length can be altered from 1 to 64 beats giving a maximum 512 beats, the number of steps can be set from 2 to 8 plus the clock rate is adjustable against the main tempo, in edit mode the sequencer will sit at the selected step.
Extract is four 2-pole filters working against each other to produce a band-pass and a simultaneous band-reject filter, both with resonance, adjusting both the high and low filters will create a band-pass state, by altering the invert dial the filter will crossfade over to a band-reject state.
The output of both the high and low filters are then passed onto two mono phasers each with its own LFO and feedback switch.
OTA-2 is placed after the main filters in series and can be switched in to produce an additional 8-pole 48db filter stage.
The filters can be set to follow tracking using the F-Mode switch and also follow the path of the ADSR.
Modulation of the cutoff frequency is set with the MOD-IN dial, Ladder Mode is hard wired to ADSR SIX and it's response is altered with the ADSR dial.
The way it responds to gate and pitch depends on the settings of the touch and timbre dials.
This is a six stage design with two decays and a variable slope, the ADSR is also hard wired to the J-ESQUE filter of OXYGEN8 and the LADDER MODE of WRAITH.
It will still have an effect when switched off. (i.e. not effecting the amplitude of the synth output but still effecting the filter)
The Master dial is a separate processor that utilises a fast response limiter for setting the output gain of the synth.
Each input has gain, pan, on/off and a solo switch.
