The SCW Oscillator is a stereo dual oscillator using static Single Cycle Waveforms as its base sound source, these are then modified in the time domain with up to four effects per oscillator and in the frequency domain with up to three spectral effects per oscillator.

OVERVIEW

The module consists of two identical oscillators: A and B. You switch between the oscillators with the A and B buttons at the top left corner of the module.

The octave knob (OCT), semitone knob (SEMI) and fine-tune knob (FINE) for oscillator A sets the main frequency of the module. The same controls for oscillator B sets the frequency offset for oscillator B. The phase difference between oscillator A and B can be set with the PHASE knob in oscillator A. Oscillator B instead has a HZ knob, this sets a linear frequency difference to allow for constant beating between the oscillators regardless of pitch.

You can change the oscillator to an LFO by turning the OCT knop of oscillator A all the way to the left. In LFO mode it ignores the pitch input signal and links the frequency to the BPM.

WAVEFORMS

Each oscillator has two waveforms: left and right. You set the mix between the left and the right waveform with the position knob (POS) in the lower left section of the module.

The waveform names are displayed at the top of the module above the waveform display and the effect knobs. To change a waveform click the triangle shaped button to the left of the waveform name (or click on the waveform name). Some options in the drop down needs further explanation:

  • BASIC - the basic waveforms
  • ADVENTUREKID - waveforms from adventure kid (more can be found here: https://www.adventurekid.se/akrt/waveforms/)
  • R_WARE - waveforms from R_WARE
  • LOAD SINGLE CYCLE WAVEFORM - this lets you load a single cycle waveform from your computer.
  • SETTINGS
    • INVERT - inverts the wave
    • REVERSE - reverses the wave
    • SPLINE REPEAT - make the wave smoother when using any repeat option
    • 1 - resets repeat options
    • 1 + 1 - repeats the wave according to the label
    • 1 + 2 - repeats the wave according to the label
    • 1 + 1 + 1 - repeats the wave according to the label
    • etc...
    • DELETE - deletes this waveform (only available if you have added more than one waveform)
  • ADD WAVE - adds an additional waveform

The small arrows "<" and ">" to the right of the waveform name is a shortcut to change to the previous or next waveform, if you have a standard waveform it will pick from the standard waveform list, if you currently have loaded a single cycle waveform from your computer it will change to the next waveform in that folder.

EFFECTS

Each waveform can be modified with up to four (time-domain) effects. Each of the four effect slots has the following controls:

  • L and R button to enable the effect for the left and right waveform.
  • FX parameter 1 knob - the main control of the effect. Usually this sets the effect amount.
  • FX parameter 2 knob - modifier amount for the effect.

SPECTRAL EFFECTS

After the effects are applied the left and right waveform are mixed (POS), see general oscillator settings section below. The output of this is sent to the three spectral effects. The spectral effects work in the frequency domain and modify the amount of the individual overtone bands of the waveform.

The SFX knob and button lets you change the routing of the spectral effects. The available options are:

  • SERIAL (SRL) - the filters are serially connected. With the knob at its mid, you get the output from SFX3, you can mix in SFX1 by turning the knob left and mix in SFX 2 by turning the knob right.
  • PARALLEL (PRL) - the filters are connected in parallel. Turning the knob left will emphasize SFX 1, turning it right will emphasize SFX 3. All three filters are used unless the knobs are at its extremes.
  • ONE TO TWO (1-2) - filter 1 is connected to filter 2 and filter 3. The knob sets the mix between filter 2 and 3.
  • TWO TO ONE (2-1) - filter 1 and 2 are connected to filter 3. The knob sets the mix between filter 1 and 2.

GENERAL MODULE SETTINGS

Waveform Length - Above the V/CV input a button lets you change the waveform length (default is 2048). Longer waveform length allows for more overtones, this changes the range of the spectral effects since they always work over the range of available overtones. If you are using spectral effects, try different waveform lengths, it can drastically change the sound.

Update Frequency - The button right of this sets the update frequency. This sets how often the module recalculates the waveform, if you need fast CV for effects and spectral effects you should set this to a low number.

The SAVE button lets you save the waveform of the selected oscillator (use this to create your own library of single cycle waveforms).

The MIX knob sets the mix between oscillator A and B. With the button below you can change to individual outs for oscillator A and B.

STEREO AMOUNT knob - sets the stereo amount.

STEREO MODE button - sets the stereo mode, the available options are:

  • NONE - no stereo
  • PHASE - adds a phase offset of up to 180 degrees between the left and right channels.
  • MIX - adds a mix offset (between oscillator A and B) of up to 50% between the left and right channels.

SUB AMOUNT - sets the mix between sub oscillator and MOD output.

SUB MODE - settings for the sub oscillator. The available options are:

  • NONE - no sub oscillator
  • A - sub oscillator uses the wave from oscillator A
  • B - sub oscillator uses the wave from oscillator B
  • MIX - sub oscillator uses the mix wave
  • INVERSE - toggles between normal wave and inverse wave
  • REVERSE - toggles between normal wave and reverse wave
  • -1 - sub oscillator is 1 octave below oscillator A
  • -2 - sub oscillator is 2 octaves below oscillator A
  • -3 - sub oscillator is 3 octaves below oscillator A

MOD AMOUNT - sets the mix between mod output and oscillator output.

MOD MODE - Available options:

  • RING MODULATION - ring modulation, multiply oscillator A with oscillator B
  • SATURATED RING MODULATION - ring modulation with saturation applied to the two signals.
  • AMPLITUDE MODULATION (RECTIFIED) - multiplies multiply oscillator A with the absolute value of oscillator B.
  • AMPLITUDE MODULATION (OFFSET) - multiplies multiply oscillator A with the magnitude of oscillator B.
  • MAX AMPLITUDE - takes the absolute max value of oscillator A and B
  • MIN AMPLITUDE - takes the absolute min value of oscillator A and B

OUTPUT

  • PHS - phase out, can be used to sync other oscillators or to sync an oscilloscope
  • L - left audio out
  • R - right audio out
