One with proper control over the master and slave oscs, not a lazy hard sync slider like in omnisphere. But different waveforms, exact pitches etc. I remember using a synth ages ago (DSI mopho I think) and I could create interesting sounds for example by gliding one osc between a third and a fifth etc.
Pretty sure you can do this with a lot of precision and flexibility in zebra. I'm actually having a though time thinking of other synths that can do this in the way you're looking for. Virus TI can, but that's an expensive synth to do one thing.
Thing is that usually sync options are limited to "analog waveforms". Aka square, triangle, pulse, on the synths I can think of. I bet you could get something very similar with the waveshaping tools in z3ta 2.
omg... I love synthmaster and I didn't even know you could do that with it. lol.. thanks
On the mopho you had 4 sequencers and could assign them to different oscillators. So you could sync the oscs and then play a melody with the harmonics of the master. For a monosynth it was great the polyrythms you could get with one sound. Miss that little yellow box's sound but it was no fun to program and sync.
Andantonius - I like the look of that a lot. The Cypher seems to have a smart "scale" tuning mode for the oscillators that cycles through the musical harmonics while turning the knob. The synth is designed for audio-rate modulation too.
The "Hard Sync" input on oscillators is actually just a reset input. You're using OSC2 to reset the phase of the OSC1: Whenever OSC2 finishes the cycle it will force OSC1 to begin anew. OSC2 therefore needs a sharp falling or rising edge, but OSC1 waveform can be more or less anything. Sawcore oscillators can usually just send the base saw to the Sync input while outputting the actual waveform that's desired though.
Also: IIRC that FabFilter Twin 2 synth does it. Not a massive fan of it otherwise since it tends to sound thin. Makes for fantastic layers for lead sounds but not much else.
Slow to medium speed lfos scanning through the waves, second osc tuned to a fifth, bit of unison + detune, hold a chord down and that is sick. Haven't even started modulating the osc pitch and adding a filter yet!
dude.. this is great, I've been getting some crazy tones with this.
They're going to release synthmaster 2.7 on August 1st. The demo is already up, and I checked it out. IT'S FUCKING AWESOME.
The most notable feature is some new oscilator "algorithms". These are on top of the already existent modes (basic, wavescanning, vesctor etc.).. it adds "bend +/-"(popularized by NI massive), and some other ones. "Bitcrushe" is interesting.
