How to modulate tri~ , saw~ , react~ phase?

March 3, 2011 | 8:12 am

Hello forumers,

As topic suggest, I’m fairly new to Max Msp, and I’m building an FM synth for my assignment. Usually i would not post on forums, unless i can’t find the answer through Max Msp’s help patches / manual.

Here is my issue : when i start making phase modulation on cycle~ object, I’ve noticed that, every other oscillator (aside from cycle~ object) does not have a phase inlet, which renders me unable to modulate the oscillators phase.

Surely, there is a way around it, and so my question is: What steps do i have to make to ‘unlock’ this phase inlet for tri~ , saw~ , react~ objects ?

thank you for your time,

the help screen (option-click) for cycle~
shows u how to give cycle~ a new wave form
the example is a saw _ but u can generate a buffer for any wave u desire

then u can modulate the phase

you can also use clip~ to turn a sine wave into a square wave.

I see now, how it could be done, I guess i misread the help file. I really appreciate your answers, helped me a great deal ;D

thank you
