2. Cantabile Lite 1.2 (doesn't matter)
3. After some extensive fiddling around with the synth yesterday, it seems I've noticed some 'gradual' issues that happen to the output when the "Unison" module is within the modular workspace.
It appears to have an inconsistent phasing that's highly audible, particularly on initial load of a patch that uses not too much detuning. As one plays around over time, the phasing of the unison voices become "consistent" after a minute or so. (The heavy flanging stops.) This may be a problem in cases of bouncing audio, where the unison phase is highly 'condensed' until after a minute of usage.
4. Here's the patch using. though I'd rather you listen to the MP3. The recorded example demonstrates the following:
---Playing a line with the patch already loaded for a while. (no changes done at all.)
---Playing the same line with the patch just reloaded. (notice the difference?)
---Playing at random from that point until the sound becomes normal. (the phase/output tone does not change from that point.)

Question (Seperate issue):
I'm not quite understanding the concept of "Symmetric" and "Straight" settings, however I've noticed that they're the same "pitch" on initial usage. But over a long period of time, either Symmetric would detune down, or Straight detune up. I can't address this as a problem, but I was wondering if you could shed some light on this one.
Thanks in advance.
straight, means that the frequencies are only smeared straight up, so only the same and higher frequencies are contained in the resulting output.
I think I was experimenting, and kindof liked both methods.
(I anyone has suggestions for more intuitive naming, just let me know.)
...but the phasing problem you describe sounds like the result you will get if trigger is enabled on the Osc1 (or Osc2) module.
Every time you trigger a key, the phase of the waveform will reset and it does this in all voices (incl. unison voices), so you can get quite large outputs, and it will take a while before the frequency-drift has smeared out the voices sufficiently. You can get around it by disabling "trigger" on the Osc.
Also this only happens when one 'loads' a patch that uses unison.
Thanks for the info on the detuning types, however is it supposed to detune the 'entire' sound upwards/downwards over long periods of time?
As for the MP3, it works for me. (ignore the [url] stuff; it's just an indicator that it's the entire url between.)
I might consider initializing (non-trigger-enabled) OSCs to some pseudo random phase to get around this problem, but I hardly think this is an issue that needs to be fixed for version 1.0.
Let me know if you agree, or not?
I'll check that patch now
Maybe some kind of extra delay on patch load when calculating the 'optimal phase spread' may help, course this could kill fast patch-switching with GUI closed.
