Ok, I’m confused. If I mix audio, say drums from Peaks, through Shades, everything works how I expect it to. If I mix oscillators through the Doepfer A-138M, the behaviour is as per an audio mixer, i.e. the waves don’t affect one another. However, if I mix oscillators through Shades, I get some kind of phase cancellation or something going on. Sounds great but I don’t know why it’s happening.
Sine into Ch 1 with no output.
Triangle from the same osc into Ch 2, output to mixer.
With the Ch 2 knob fully CCW, the sine sounds like it’s being waveshaped, or folded or something. I think I’d expect this with nothing going into Ch 2 because of the 5/10V thing. I think.
If I have sines going into Ch 1 and 2, and output from 2, I get phase cancellation.
I think this is all to do with why Blinds can be used as a ring mod, but regardless any useful insights would be appreciated. I’ve tried unipolar and biopolar by the way. Can Shades be used as an oscillator mixer if I don’t want them affecting each other?
