What actually generates the wavetables?

Just wondering if anyone's still out there!

Been looking at the TI's wavetables under a microscope at differing octaves, and I'm left wondering how the individual waveforms are generated.

Some have...

Actually, sounds like it could be a oscillator phase issue. Are both oscillators enabled and mixed (summed) together?

They're never exactly the same speed, even if Osc2 detune is set to zero, so...

Anything to do with Sustain Time? Seems the TI doesn't have a dedicated Sustain-Time knob in the ADSR section like the older Indigo, so it'll be in your menus.

Hi, welcome.

By 1/2 ton, you mean 1 semitone? (1/12th of an octave?)

'Pitch' is used for semitones, but if you need something smaller you need to modulate 'Detune'. So Osc3detune, not Osc3pitch....
