So tonight I started my first patch.
I created a standard saw osc with adsr patch - all is well.
Now I liked to add a sub osc to give it more oomph down low, so I added and mixed a square wave at one octave below, with its own gain control. (As I thought that's basically what a sub osc normally is?)
But when I fade in the sub osc, it doesn't sound like any low end is added - I mean, something has changed in the sound, but it sure isn't deep oomph
In cpwitz's Junebug Juno106 patch the subosc works pretty nice, but the patch is so complicated I haven't figured out yet what's happening.
I see he's mixing in a square wave one octave lower, but after that some sort of filter is applied that I haven't figured out yet - lots of incoming parameters from other operations.
How do I implement a nice sounding subosc for more rounded oomph in the low end?
