VOICE EDIT MODE / 3: Full Edit. 3-1: Oscillator
The five parameters provided here all affect how the AWM waveform assigned to
the voice is reproduced, thereby determining the basic sound of the voice.
Mode (Oscillator mode)
Range: fix, norm
Determines whether the selected wave is reproduced in the normal (variable
pitch) or fixed-pitch mode.
Normally you want the pitch of the AWM wave (or waves) used in a voice
to be controllable from a keyboard or other type of controller, in which case
the “norm” mode should be selected. In some cases — sound effects in particu-
lar — you might want the same pitch to be produced no matter what note you
play on the keyboard or other controller. In this case, the “fix” mode is appro-
priate. The Note parameter described below can be used to set the note pro-
duced when the “fix” mode is selected.
Fine (Fine tuning)
Range: -63 … 0 … +63
Allows fine tuning of the selected AWM wave. Each increment corresponds
to approximately 1.17 cents (a “cent” is 1/100th of a semitone) so the lowest
setting (-63) shifts the pitch down by almost three quarters of a semitone,
while the highest setting (+63) shifts the pitch up by the same amount.
A setting of “+0” produces standard concert pitch (A3 = 440 Hertz).
Please note that this parameter is used to individually tune the current
voice. Overall tuning control is provided by the master “Tune” parameter
available in the UTILITY mode.
