on phoscyon you know how there is the sweep time, well you can hear it sweeping with res all the way. thats what the bassdrum is like on a normal 909. but i guess that isnt really a free running oscillator.

edit: when i get back to my house i will post a better example for you.

You're right - it isn't free running oscilator :)
I can tell You more: it isn't matter of envelope :D

It's just because of clock inaccuracy in 909.
We were talking and thinking a lot of this feature, but we've decided that drum machine should play with an ideal timing.

I don't know if we've made a right decision...

Make the inaccuracy an option and give it an amount you can set ?

yes! that would be great! maybe you guys can consider it for next update. what do you think Jacek?


edit: possibly control how much you want it to oscillate freely??

Hi. Just checked. Seems nice. It can add something which analogue assholes call "nonlinearity" :) Could be realy nice feature.

At least consider it. (as 2X oversample factor for synthesized drums. Something different then free running osc or whatever but imo can improve sound)

Regards!

I think we can add such option... like 'Analog timing'
In range 0-PWYW*

*- play what you want ;)

Regards

i am assuming this clock inaccuracy applied to all instruments in the 909?

To be more precise - per step.
Every instrument at one step should be 'moved' with the same amount.
