Synth Glossary

Frequency Modulation (FM):
Frequency modulation allows the output of one oscillator to drive the frequency of another oscillator. It can generate very complex sounds from very simple waveforms and is the basis of the Yamaha DX range of synthisizers and OPL range of synthesizer chips (used in Adlib and most other soundcards)....

CS-05
The CS-05 is a single oscillator monophonic synthesizer with a 3 octave, 37-note (C-C) keyboard. the voice architecture consists of a single VCO, a VCF, a LFO, and a simple envelope generator. The VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) has sliders controlling the level of it's two waveforms, sawtooth, and pulse. The pulse width can be modulated by the LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator). The LFO features a sample-and-hold setting and can modulate up into the audio range for FM sounds. There is an input and a trigger circuit which allows you to trigger a sound via an external audio signal.
