Our system uses a 6-Volt 500mA center positive adapter. Our system is
regulated at 5 Volts.
The left and right waveforms allow several interesting standard waveforms.
Included are a few of the developer’s favorite sounds. The pitch
of these is played around the base frequency.
Besides selecting one of the preset waveforms, the musician has the opportunity
to “draw” the desired waveform using 15 linear slide potentiometers.
To remove the initial “click” sound, the first sample is set
at midscale. It is recommended that the musician set at least one sample
to full scale and one sample to zero scale. This allows maximum resolution.
The musician can select C, A, E or G base notes at different octaves.
The musician still has the opportunity to play any note; these are just
four base notes.
The range allowed is greater at low frequencies and narrower at higher
frequencies. (Logarithmic approach)
This section combines both waveforms from the left and right channels
into a new sound.
Add- adds left and right waveform and divides by two
Subtract – subtracts right from left (when left and right are the
same waveform, you will hear nothing)
Multiply – multiplies left times right waveform
This section is the final analog stage of the Waymon Synth. The musician
can create any low pass or high pass filter. Overlapping these two filters
creates a band pass or a band stop. Turning either knob forward moves
the filter’s critical frequency up and vice versa.
