With the 2 modulation mixers you could create complex modulations (including the 3 Oscs as sources) and then use the mixers as a complex mod source in the 3 oscillators (for AM, FM and/or PM).
I don't know anything about poly-ana, are those audio rate modulations and can you then modulate the level (non audio rate) with an EG?
Well i meant using the 3 Oscs as a source which means audio rate.
In Poly-Ana the 3 Oscs could be routed to several parameters.
In each of the 3 Oscs this includes (those could be used all at once for each Osc):
3) Waveform Mod or Dest Mod
4) PW Mod or Phase Mod
Amounts go up to 10 which is a very high value. An AM amount of 1.0 also corresponds to a value of 1.0 in e.g. Serum but you could go much higher in Poly-Ana.
First in Poly-Ana i used a maximum amount of 10 and was confused that the result is totally different.
The 3 Oscs (audio rate) could be also routed to:
- Filter 1 Cutoff or Filter 1 Resonance (both if you do not use a filter envelope modulation too)
- Filter 2 Cutoff or Filter 2 Resonance (both if you do not use a filter envelope modulation too)
- Amplifier 1 panning or Amplifier 1 Volume/Amplitude
- Amplifier 2 panning or Amplifier 2 Volume/Amplitude
All those options mentioned got a dedicated drop-down menu with multiple mod source options that also include the oscillators (OSC-1 to OSC-3).
For more complex modulations you could combine up to 4 mod sources wit hthe 2 "modulation mixers".
Each of the up to 4 modulations could be a multiplication(*) or addition (+) and each of the 4 steps has an adjustable amount.
The result of the mod mixer could the selected as e.g. "Mix-1" or "Mix-2" in the mod source drop-down menus of the parameters in the lists above.
In the mod mixer you could combine an oscillator output with e,g, an envelope to modulate e.g. the AM amount. For example for the AM in Osc 1 instead of Osc 2 as a mod source you then choose "Mix-1".
