I'm looking for a detailed explanation of how the grain and formant oscillators work.
I've read the manual and seen the boot camp videos.
I would really like to see a detailed explanation of how they work. Twiddling the knobs has been great but enquiring minds want to know.
BTW I love creating some grain oscillator sound and then dropping the pitch all the way. Very cool
The grain oscillator lets you control how to slice dice and rebuild the selected wavetable shape. To see exactly what you are doing I recommend watching the audio through a scope plugin (if your SW doesn't have one included you can download smexoscope). The same way, the formant oscillator acts like a phaser effect on the oscillator shape, which is best viewed in the frequency domain - so you'll need a frequency analyzer plugin.
Hope this helps.
I've got smexoscope I'll take a look.
So.... formant filter as fancy phaser effect. I'll take a look at it with that mindset.
I want to be the absolute master of Virus programming when I grow up.
