Hypersaw Symphony, orchestral analog-emulated synthesizer – Page 4 – Instruments Forum

Alright I better describe how to make it so I am the first before someone guesses and claims they came up with it first.

Very simple.

Distribute the starting phases of all saws equidistant + [optionally] a tiny random fixed offset otherwise you’ll get a perfect harmonic and it will just sound like one sawtooth at a higher frequency.

Modulate the phases to a factor where all phases do not overlap.

Example: take 5 sawtooths. Phases will be 0/5, 1/5, 2/5, 3/5, 4/5. Now modulate the phases 0 [UP TO] 1 times 1/5 [as in 0 to 0.3 or 0 to 0.5, it’s up to you] so you can never have overlap or if you want some overlap 0 to 2 times 1/5. Now modulate the phases with random walk which can go from low frequency random to white noise, that will allow you to get sounds of supersaws to insane screaming pure white noise hypersaws.

The idea of a hypersaw came to me as I was trying to figure out a way to best distribute sawtooths with no overlap to prevent flanging and chorusing to maximize the desirable quality of a supersaw while minimizing the undesirable qualities.
