On HFO range

Post by Ortseam » 02 Feb 2019 17:53

Hello!

As I use Karma more and more, some new questions appear.

While playing with HFO I noticed that it's real range is 44Hz ... 16 kHz, while the Manual in HFO parameter table says: "Rate (0.26Hz-16kHz)".

Which of two is wrong? (or maybe of three, taking me into account :) - maybe I do something incorrectly)

As to me, I'd like the Manual to be right as the frequency below 44 Hz might be highly welcome when building e.g. a kick drum sound by this module.

Thank you!

Hi Ortseam!!

So glad you are using the synth. Love all the cool feedback. :D

Actually, you are correct. It is a bug, and part of the bugfixes in 1.20 is:
  • Bugfix: HFO rate could not go below 44Hz in FM Mode. Fixed.
However, I believe this fix was only for FM mode. Is that correct or did I miss something?

Thank you so much! I love Karma and so happy to hear it's getting even more beautiful! :)

This bug presents at any HFO mode and type of connection (as far as I could see). BTW at left knob's left position the module screen shows "Rate: 0.26 Hz" but actually it's 44 Hz


By the way, is it right that when I try to modulate Osc1's "freq" knob by HFO (it doesn't matter in FM mode or not) the amount of this modulation affects not only the amount of higher harmonics produced but also the Osc1's fundamental tone pitch?
Here's what's happening when you turn HFO's 'amount' knob:
