super sawtor is the module designed to produce unison like waveforms from the incoming signal. the best results are achieved using sawtooth, triangle or sine waveforms as an input signal. unison spread has
been tuned to give almost the same type of harmonics smearing as the famous roland jp80x0 supersaw oscillator. thus feeding the super sawtor with a sawtooth waveform will result in a typical supersaw
though having some common features with sawtooth animators, super sawtor gives that vivid tension of the supersaw waveform, which is different to imitation of the multiple oscillators sound most sawtooth
animators capable of doing. the main difference is in the approach used: sawtooth animators tend to recreate continuously moving phase shift of the slightly detuned / drifting oscillators; super sawtor in its
turn creates additional pitched shifted harmonics to the input signal, which gives a different sonic character compared to sawtooth animators.
it is also should be mentioned that super sawtor is a completely analog circuit free of aliasing.
no external modulation sources are required for proper operation of the module. however the user can add changes and modulation to the manually set "spread" amount by using "cv" input and adjusting "cv" knob
to the desired degree.
mix control internally mixes the input signal (0 dial position) and the supersaw output.
input level: -5v … + 5v (can also accept inputs ranging from [-2.5v… +2.5v] to [-15v…+15v] using onboard trimmers)
output level: averages around -5v … + 5v
output impedance: 1 kohm
module depth: 3 cm or 1,5"
power consumption: +45/-45 ma at +/-12v dc through euro standard 10 pin connector.
4 notes chord:- lowest bass notes recorded unprocessed, three upper notes processed through eq, compressor and reverb.
4 to 6 notes chord:- raw super sawtor output at 40% spread amount recorded to a daw, mixed, processed by eq with automation plus reverb.
classic: super sawtor output at 30% spread amount, ar vca.
super sawtor bass line: raw output at 50% spread amount with 12 db analog lp filter and ampvca
point of view – “white shadow” cover.
4 notes chord, 4 super sawtor instances are used at 40% spread amount, upper submodule’s output recorded to l channel and lower submodule’s output recorded to r channel. first part of the demo is unprocessed, the second part – filter sweep.
raw super sawtor output. spread amount is changed from 0 to 10 (from min to max)
first there is one ordinary saw sent to the supersawtor’s input, then i gradually add another saw to the input which is detuned compared to the first saw. when boths saws are at the same level i start to change the spread amount. raw output is recorded
