| The Pittsburgh Modular DNA Symbiotic Waves is a powerful 8-bit digital oscillator and waveform processor. A unique dual oscillator system paired with a comprehensive waveform processing and modulation section. Even with all this power, the interface of the Symbiotic Waves module is as intuitive and easy to use as all of the analog Pittsburgh Modular eurorack modules. Nothing is hidden behind layers of menus, secret button combinations, or hard to understand graphics. This is naked digital synthesis.
The oscillator is divided into master (wave 1) and slave (wave 2) waveform generators. Each oscillator offers a wide range of operation without frequency stepping or zippering artifacts. The master pitch is set using the frequency and fine tune knobs. The pitch of the slave oscillator is tied to the frequency of the master oscillator but can be offset up to an octave using the wave 2 detune knob.
Each oscillator offers 16 different single cycle waveforms. The waves are fine tuned to celebrate digital aliasing and bit-rate artifacts.
Symbiotic Waves mixes the output of the two oscillators using a unique waveform processor. The processor combines the waves using 1 of 16 different methods. Each processor mode offers manual and voltage control over wave balance and a mode specific controller function.
