sys.6 | radium is a saw oscillator with pulse width modulation to generate a dirty fuzzy/buzzy saw sound. See the images and audio examples for further reference. The oscillator can be detuned by 2 octaves (in notes) up/down or by -1/+1 semi-tones.

The controls and their functions from top to bottom:

  • Top white knob: Sets the pulse width amount.
  • Detune knob: Sets the detune amount for the saw oscillator. Detuning the oscillator makes the sound richer when mixing it together with the pulse waveform.
  • Range switch: Sets the range of detune for the saw waveform from -24 to +24 notes (4 octave range) or -1 to +1 semi-tone.
  • Pitch: Is the input for the pitch/note.
  • PWM.CV knob and jack: Is the input to use a CV signal to modulate the pulse width from 0.05 to 0.95.
  • Out: Outputs the oscillator signal.

(!) Clicking the planet.6 logo at the bottom removes the drive from the waveform output.

  • The CV-led has 3 states. If the incoming signal is negative, the led blinks blue, when positive it blinks green.
