Happy Nerding - Super Sawtor [MOTM]
Super Sawtor is the module designed to produce unison like waveforms from the incoming signal. The best results are achieved using sawtooth, triangle or sine waveforms as an input signal. Unison spread has been tuned to give almost the same type of harmonics smearing as the famous Roland jp80x0 supersaw oscillator. Thus feeding the Super Sawtor with a sawtooth waveform will result in a typical supersaw output.
Though having some common features with sawtooth animators, Super Sawtor gives that vivid tension of the supersaw waveform, which is different to imitation of the multiple oscillators sound most sawtooth animators capable of doing. The main difference is in the approach used: sawtooth animators tend to recreate continuously moving phase shift of the slightly detuned / drifting oscillators; Super Sawtor in its turn creates additional pitched shifted harmonics to the input signal, which gives a different sonic character compared to sawtooth animators.
It is also should be mentioned that Super Sawtor is a completely analog circuit free of aliasing.
No external modulation sources are required for proper operation of the module. However the user can add changes and modulation to the manually set “Spread” amount by using “CV” input and adjusting “CV” knob to the desired degree.
