Getting to Know the Ultrabeat Oscillators

The Ultrabeat oscillators are used to generate waveforms. Oscillator 2 can use a sample in place of a waveform. The signal of one, or both, oscillators is then sent to other portions of the synthesizer engine for shaping, processing, or manipulation.

Other sound sources include a separate noise generator and ring modulator, which can produce additional signals to those generated by the oscillators. See Using the Ultrabeat Ring Modulator and Using the Ultrabeat Noise Generator.

Before the oscillator parameters are discussed, a few of the special features available to you in Ultrabeat’s oscillator section should be pointed out.
