getting rid of wobbles

Post by philmb » Fri Jun 05, 2009 11:13 am

hi guys. What do you lot think is the best way of geting rid of that "wobble lfo" effect when layering osc n detuning them in a synth.. for example, when i'm tryin to make a "reese bass" i have a couple saw tooths n detune them... n you get that wobbley affect.. (oh n whats the technical term there???)
Thanks..

Yeh, just seems the sounds i like are always in the "wobbly" region.. I've been using the filter n a bit of eq n limiter to sort it out... Just wondered if there was a "propper" way to do it.. cheers mate.

yep that is caused by the negative and positive interference of the waveforms. you could try altering the phase of the oscillators, but that would only cause the "wobble" to happen later or sooner, not get rid of it.

It could be beats which is more a fluctuation of a waveform...
but i think it due to phasing.
you can do two things
take the synth you layered and delay the signal by 25ms
or detune them with in a amount to get a noticeable difference
