How can I use the BGA Unison module with a polyphonic oscillator and allow for chords? I have the MIDI-CV set to Polyphonic 16 channels and switching through ‘Reset’, ‘Reuse’ and ‘Rotate’ provide no change. The cables are wider which represents polyphony chain, but I am only able to play one note at a time. According to VCV VCA, Unison is using up every channel simultaneously. Is this not possible, or is the only option a “specialty” oscillator with integrated unison, like XFX Waves? Any advice is greatly appreciated.
I think that is the case. Bog unison can not handle poly input. Making your own polyphonic synth with unison can be done like this (max 4 voice poly in this case). Use any VCO you like.
Knobs controls the unison (drift).
Alright, thank you!
I thought the purpose of the Unison module was to do all that in one fell swoop, but I’m mistaken. thanks again.
The simplest patches for true unison are with Surge XT osc at the moment. They have a voice count control and go up to 16 voices, all available polyphonically, I believe summed stereo at your mixer.
The Surge VCO unison modes are wonderful, also check out the drift setting in their context menu.
Yes, I agree!
Most of my favorited modules are from Surge XT, BGA & Vult at the moment. Really cool modules. I just wanted to see if there was a convenient way of adding unison to any polyphonic oscillator such as Vult Bleak for lush pad sounds. But, I guess I’d just have to get redundant and have 9 instances of Bleak and hope my processor doesn’t explode.
Thanks for all the replies!
