Signal Flow

The synthesis part goes like this, for each cycle:

  • Any active wave-shapes get summed up
  • That signal get analysed for spectral content
    (can be none if no wave-shape layers are enabled)
  • Spectral magnitude curves either add-to or multiply with the magnitude spectrum
  • Spectral phase curves add to the phase spectrum
  • The modified harmonic spectra get transformed back into a signal
    (the time-domain)

Note that there are two sources of sound in Cycle: wave-shape layers and spectral magnitude layers in additive mode.


The entire signal chain:

  • Synthesis part creates signal
  • Declick & Volume Envelopes is applied
  • Voice is combined with the signal of other voices
  • Waveshaper
  • Impulse Response Modeller convolution effect
  • Delay
  • Reverb
