Sample text

5 A mix with no excursion (all the contents of the mix are almost at equal volume) work along similar principles to compressors but rather than compress a signal by a ratio, they stop signals from ever exceeding the threshold in the first place. This means that no matter how loud the inputted signal becomes, it will be squashed down so that it never violates the current threshold setting. This is referred to as ‘brick wall’ because no sounds can ever exceed the threshold. Some limiters, however, allow a slight increase in level above the threshold in an effort to maintain a more natural sound.

The second wheel, modulation, is freely assignable and offers a convenient method of controlling any on-board parameters, such as the level of the LFO signal sent to the oscillator, filter or VCA or to control the filter cutoff directly. Again, whether this wheel is assignable will depend on the manufacturer of the synthesizer. On some synthesizers the wheels are hard coded to only allow oscillator modulation (for a vibrato effect), while some others do not have a separate modulation wheel and instead the pitch bend lever can be pushed forward to produce LFO modulation.

Select sawtooth waves for two oscillators; if there is a third oscillator that you cannot turn off, choose a triangle for this third oscillator. Next, detune one sawtooth from the other until the timbre begins to thicken. This is a tutorial to grasp the concept of synthesis, so keep detuning until you hear the oscillators separate from one another and then move back until they become one again and the timbre is thickened out. Generally speaking, detuning of 3 cents should be ample but do not be afraid to experiment – this is a learning process.
