Mono compatibility of the binaural setting

Hi George,

Great to have you here.

May I ask if you’ve done any testing for mono compatibility of the synth? I ask because many people these days are (unfortunately) listening to music on mono Bluetooth speakers - in fact, we have one in the kitchen that we use.

Hi and thanks for your question. When pulling out the right jack, the synth signal sums to mono on the left jack. This allows us to test the mono output on all of our patches. They do not sound the same of course, but some of the fears about phase cancellation can be mitigated because left and right oscillators are not detuned relative to eachother in binaural mode, only their partials are dephased, this results in amplitude change when mixing left and right and will change the sound, but to our ears it is still nice. This is a bit different for the filter self oscillating resonance that can be detuned left to right with the LR phase control. This has a tendency then to 'beat' on some patches, however to my ears at least this is often quite nice.
