Chapter 5. Building a Song > Phase Modulation

Phase Modulation

Now it's time to fatten the sound. The oscillator section of the SubTractor is very versatile—it allows you to adjust the phase modulation (“phase mod” for short) of each oscillator.

Huh? Well, each SubTractor oscillator can create a second tone—a copy of itself—behind the scenes. When the SubTractor combines this copy with the original tone, it creates a new, third tone. This is not the same thing as having four more oscillators. Rather, it's a process called phase offset modulation. What does it do? Despite its complex-sounding name, this process is simply a powerful tone-shaping tool.
