Sound experiment with only square wave

Sound experiment with only square wave sound from VCO fundamental module in VCV Rack. Challenging and limiting in music composition by applying basic waveforms, push the limit of creativity and sound design skill.

The square wave differs from the sine wave in that, besides the fundamental frequency, it also contains odd harmonics.The sum of these harmonics and the fundamental give it its square shape. As you can see, its cycle is equally divided into two alternating constant amplitudes above and below the baseline. That’s why it’s called a symmetrical wave and, thus, a true square wave. Otherwise, if the time the wave is above the baseline differs form the time below the baseline, the wave is not symmetrical and it’s called a “rectangular” wave.
