Way to reduce the pitch mod lower than 0.10?

Post by polybonk » Tue Apr 10, 2018 5:54 am

0.10 is still quite a lot when it comes to the pitch of the OSC. I was wondering if there was a way to get it lower.

Like for example if there was a control I could use to modify the amount lower?

If not then something like a 1% modifier would be good. IE a control that changes the amount to cover all the way from 0.10 to 0.00

Hi - I agree - the .10 is not granular enough. Especially when I try to emulate something like the tight phasing of Mini Moog oscillators.

What I have done in those situations is I send the MAXVAL to a mixer and use the mixer to modulate the pitch of the oscillator. You can reduce the the amount in the mixer and also the % that is modifying the oscillator. This allows for some very fine control.

Other ways off the top of my head:
- Set the Control to MaxVal and then set the Strength between 0% and -50%.
- Run the modulator signal through a spare mixer and adjust the mixer level down. Then use the mixer as mod source of the oscillator pitch. If you don't have a spare mixer maybe you can press a VS into service.
