Setting the carrier pitch

Let's take a look at this Carrier oscillator and how it works. So the Carrier oscillator is a bit different than some of the oscillators we have seen in the other synths, just because it only generates sine waves. So if I play a note on here, we can see that the waveform is the sine waveform. If we look on this Analyzer, there's really only one component of the sound, just the fundamental frequency. So I'm playing an A note to 220 hertz, that's really it. If you look at other types of waveforms, like a sawtooth waveform, you see a whole lot of other harmonic components to the sound.

The sine waveform is pretty characterless, but the good thing is that the Modulation oscillator that they call the Modulator, that's what's going to be creating the texture. So it's the modulation between this Modulator and Carrier that's going to create the shape of the sound. So it's okay that this Carrier oscillator only generates sine waves. One thing that's interesti...
