The Additive Oscillator

The Additive Oscillator

The Additive Oscillator section of RE4ORM is where you select the waveform of the built-in additive synthesizer. The additive waveform forms the starting point of your sound. Changing it will alter the character and timbre of your presets. Additive Oscillator waveforms are organized by timbre in a group of folders so you can find what you’re looking for more quickly.

Selecting and Modifying Waveforms

You can select a wavetable by using the left and right arrow buttons in the wavetable selection window. You can also click on the wavetable name itself to see a selection of wavetables organized in categories by type of sound.

The change the wavetable even further you can use your mouse to click and drag on the waveform itself. After releasing the mouse you will hear the results of your changes. Pressing the SHIFT key while editing the waveform will duplicate parts of the waveform rather than shape it. Pressing the CONTROL key (COMMAND on Mac) while editing the waveform will change the amplitude of part of the waveform.

Renaming and Saving Waveforms

You can rename and save your waveform edits and reuse them in other presets. To name a waveform, press the Control key and click (Mac) or right click (Windows) on the name of the waveform until it highlights. Type in your new name and hit the return key. Your wavetable will be saved in the User folder of the wavetable categories. To see the wavetable categories click the wavetable name itself and a menu will appear.
