NBL Aliasaw Gate
This module is a sawtooth-shaped oscillator, featuring an adjustable non-interpolated “Hard” harmonic division. This function produces a unique sound, ranging from near-perfect ramp down to raw digital aliasing oscillator with various quantization errors. The Non-Band-Limited oscillator design results in a rich high-frequency harmonic content. The oscillator is retriggered by gate messages to start from the point indicated on the phase control.
Max. Polyphony: 13
This is an input for a frequency signal, which is used to control the pitch of the oscillator. Here you connect the frequency output of an MVC, Pitch2CV or note sequencer.
This function adjusts the pitch of its Oscillator up or down in semi-tones.
This function adjusts the pitch of its Oscillator up or down in cents (1/100 of a semitone).
This is an input for gate signals. Every time a signal is received at the Gate input, the generated waveshape “jumps” back, and plays from the starting position (set by the phase control).
This function sets the point from which the generated wave cycle will start its playback every time a gate signal is been received.
This is an input for a control signal (usually from another Oscillator or LFO), which is used to modulate the Phase (start-point) of the oscillator. The Phase Mod knob adjusts the amount of modulation applied to the Phase function, and is bipolar.
This is an input for control signals (usually from another Oscillator or LFO), which are used to modulate the Frequency of the oscillator. The FM knob adjusts the degree to which the control input modulates the Frequency.
This function quantizes the number of cycles of the generated waveshape. This process is required for accurate pitch tracking. It creates an aliasing effect that can be varied by changing the saw division value. The values 1024, 2048, 4096 and 8192 are recommended.
This is the audio output of the Oscillator. The waveform emerges here.
