I’m not sure if this is a bug or if it’s intentional, so I wanted to check here first.
If you use two sinusoids, and make osc 2 modulate osc 1, osc 2’s sound is played. This seems undesirable, because you can’t control the shape of the frequency modulation as you could in dexed as a good FM reference point. The modulation source will always be audible, since it’s level is linked to both it’s sound output and its modulation intensity.
I don’t hear the behavior you’re describing. I can set osc2 level to 0 and still FM-modulate osc1 with it. Bringing up the level of osc2 just mixes in the sine without altering the sound of osc1.
Sorry, this was an error on my part. It seems I was using the sources in reverse.
If I enabled osc 1 and 2, and I wanted to use 2 as the mod source, I would set it to FM osc 1. Reading it out loud it seems like a command to osc 2. Telling it, “Frequency modulate osc 1.” In reality, it seems to work more along the lines of “Be frequency modulated by osc 1”
I appreciate the reply!
Ah I see why that could be confusing. I might rename that…
Interesting; the alternative interpretation never occurred to me because all the other options in that menu clearly alter the current oscillator’s waveform. Names like “FM by Osc2” might remove any ambiguity.
