The detuning creates a new balance between the 2 osc and what comes out is a recieved new tone with made with the principes of duality. Then listen and sit back and think about the universe and the creation of all things. The universe is made by the concept of duality. Every part of energie needs its counter energie the result is called balance. Balance is when the negative and the positive energy has the same amount of value. If they are not balanced, then things are moving and re-balancing until they found balance, this movement is called time.
So the dual concept and the re-balancing (time) is creating everything you see, atoms, planets, genders, night/day, love/hate and even sound (think about sine-waves. Everything is collected in circles, circles are nothing but just a vibration between the 2 duality poles, remember the rebalancing.

So what do we do here then?
We are here to have experiences in a world of duality, its like holiday you can feel really great if you know what bad is (duality). if everything would be great, then we wont realise it because you have no relative point as a reference. This is what 2 detuned saws are saying to you.

cool huh?

what about duality vs. non-duality? is that a trilogy?

With regard to the original post, it really depends on what you're trying to achieve. I'm still assuming you are actually joking, but - just in case you're not - I suggest that you don't detune them too much in relation to each other. I only say that because I've heard two saw waves over-obviously detuned (with a high cutoff value) in this manner in a number of musical styles (dnb, techno, house) and I hate it. I should say however, that if you were to use two SINE waves and set the cutoff on low, detune them about a semitone apart from each other, set a pitch modulation on slow (to get the drop bass sound) and play in the low octave range, you got yourself a crazy-nice sound. Works wonders in Photek/Johnny L style minimal dnb.

But I still reckon you were jokin'

Then you get an uneven beating sound due to phase cancellation. That's why you need 3 detuned oscs.

Last night I tried holding down a key on this weird ass thing my friends call a piano.. scared the shit out of me. So I went to bed... Feeling better today, but decided to leave the piano thingy till at least two people have called me a PRO!

Then I'll go and rebuy everything I own to make sure that its got PRO or PROFESSIONAL written on them, BECAUSE I'LL BE A PRO AND IT HAS TO BE WRITTEN EVERYWHERE!




I need another ice cream...




Thanks for listening!

Give us some tips lads. What works for you?
It is no wonder why some many slutz cannot comprehence the question.
For the question itself can only be perceived by a level 42 intellectualigence.
I shall decompress.

The issue at hand is that of 'purity'
"You have 2 Osc and you detune them...than what?"
Form follows function, a truth that we's distracted by the 'if-than' logic.
The more that one adds to the form (in this case the 'crank'ing of resonance, 'than release', and halfway attack) the further you deviate from original purity of form.

The eternal conflict between the 'Saw' Waveform versus the 'Said' Oscillator is symbolic of the pure joy of transcendent minimalism and the SA(i)D chaotic oscillations of our broken self destructive natures, always looking to adjust our decay before the attack comes down... down... down...

If you're using a soft synth and it has one, I'd recommend you hit the "random" button next.

Hmm, I'm not quite following the thread...

Two counter forces of the universe in constant struggle, multiverse, Chuck Norris was born to restore the balance... Is this a new Moorcock book?
