- See Sawtooth Waveform.
- Sawtooth Waveform
- The name comes from the fact that the waveform resembles with the
form of a sawtooth of a wood saw, it is slowly going up to then
steeply fall down. The waveform is simple to achieve in electronics,
commonly done by slowly charging and capacitor and then very fast
short-cursuit it to let the voltage fall happend.
- Mathematical function, see Sine Waveform.
- Sine Waveform
- The Sine waveform is a waveform following the mathematical
function of sin. To the ear will it sound like a very pure
tone. Througth the Fourier theorem we can show that any repetive
function can be fully explained as a set of sines of diffrent phase
- Square Waveform
- The square waveform has got it's name from the fact that it is
similar to an square. It has two levels, they are equally long in time
and they are alternated with very quick jumps (very steep
slopes). Square wave can also be viewed as being an 50%
- Sustain is a term used for envelopes.
It is the level that the decay will strive for. One can speak of a
sustain phase such that the envelope is very close to the sustain
level and the decay changes are very small. The sustain phase will end
when the trigger ends it. Normally can the sustain level be controled.
- See Synchronisation.
- Often shorted to sync.
- Synchronisation is when two normally independent events have been
forced to occur in a ordered time structure. It is said that two
events is in synchronisation when they follow an predecided time
structure while they are said to be out of synchronisation when they
do not follow and time structure. It is common for synchonisation to
be as simple as to say that the events should happend at the same time
or possibly with a fixed time delay.
- The process or work needed to be done in order to get two or more
events to apear to be synchronious.
- In VCOs it refers to a synchronisation process in order to get the
waveforms phase to be syncronised from some source.
