The UniCycle generates six waveforms, which are emitted by individual outputs. Some of the waves can be deformed via the PW potentiometer and a corresponding CV input. In detail, the VCO produces the following waveforms:
- Pulse with variable width
- Sawtooth with double basic frequency – This waveform is only generated while the PW potentiometer is set to 12 o’clock position. With the control element turned all the way to the left or right, a triangle wave with normal pitch is produced. Hybrid forms provide complex harmonics.
- Even – This waveform consists exclusively of even-numbered harmonics. The harmonic content can be altered via the PW potentiometer.
For adjusting its pitch, the UniCycle features a tune potentiometer. Thanks to a wide “dead zone”, it is very easy to set the knob to its zero-point. A three-way switch determines the potentiometer’s control range:
- Hi – Tune covers the full audio range
- Oct – Tune covers a range of plus / minus one octave
- Lo – Tune covers the low frequency range, meaning the module can be used as a LFO.
Additionally, a fine tune potentiometer was implemented.
Pitch CV signals are fed to the UniCycle via a 1v/octave connector. Other inputs include:
- Linear FM
- Exponential FM
- Hard sync
- Soft sync
