v1.2
- added another FM Mode
- fixed a bug where the wave select knob did not follow the buttons
- changed mod amount of FM, Phase and PW to linear

v1.1
- in exponential FM Mode the FM Amount knob now is quantized to semitones
- changed the FM Amount values to semitones (exp mode) and Hz (lin mode)

I will stay tuned! Very interesting! Thank you!

Since it is a single oscillator ratio is hard to realize cause you need the other oscillators frequency. I also can add a output for this but this would not work with other oscillator blocks. I'm working on a dual version ass well but i also have three other projects running and i am really unhappy about the modulation inputs. Two or even four inputs is a joke for complex modules but a solution is nearly finished so stay tuned ;)

Love this osc a lot...thanks so much. Is there a way to work in ratios like other FM oscs or just pitch?

A little manual with a description of the fm modes will follow asap.

Thanks for the update, it sounds great. It brings up the event watcher for me though, I'm not sure if it was saved inside accidentally.

Ok Trail I hate to say it but there is 1 small problem now, at some point the Coarse knob got a midi note assigned to it somehow. Pressing note 54 lowers coarse tuning to -48. To fix: Click Coarse knob, go to "Connect" tab, under Midi, select type - controller. Change Note/CC number to 0. Turn Midi In off.

Trail, thanks for including my snapshots. Nico, they can be found on the instrument itself, in the dropdown menu on the title bar. There are a few categories of snapshots, including one for each basic wave, one for the complex waves, a sound effect bank, and a "random" bank which is an assortment of all different snapshot types. I think the snapshots can come in handy to show off what this oscillator can do, but they're also useful for idea generation and random sound creation. Let me know how you like them!

The snapshots seem to be missing.

Thanks for your nice report Brett! Fixed the things you have mentioned. I'm on the forums but you can send it to reg.sltp[at]gmail.com as well.

Are you on the forums? I have about 300 snapshots for this divided into 7 banks. I'd like to send them to you so you can include them if you update this. I can see a couple small GUI imrovements you could do as well: the Coarse knob's mod wheel needs to be moved left 1 pixel, and the FM and Sync mode buttons are being slightly overlapped by shadows. Disabling the knob's shadows and painting them on the background itself would be the best solution here. If you don't plan to update, these are only minor suggestions. The block is great as it is, and I will use it! Thanks again for your hard work, and I'm looking forward to your ensemble.
