Pulse Width Modulation for Square?
« on: October 22, 2016, 04:20:22 AM »
Just a silly crazy idea, but I imagine that doing PWM on a square wave in FM-world could be neat. What do you think? Is it feasible? :)

Preenfm2 use only precomputed waveforms for performance reason.
So PWM would not be straightforward to add.

I'm not sure adding waveform that people usually find in "substractive synth" would make it a better FM synth.

I suppose so! Still, allowing variable waveforms could introduce quite a lot of interesting harmonic variations. But I understand it would take a huge amount of effort to implement- Thanks for taking the time to answer :)
