P12 SuperSaw?

P12 SuperSaw?
« on: March 15, 2016, 02:56:09 AM »
Hey all just getting back into synths after a long time away and had read in some early P12 literature that it would be able to do supersaw waveforms? Like the JP 8000 or Hypersaw on the TI2?

Did this ever happen? Is there a trick to selecting it?

If not what would be the best way to get as close to this as possible?

Thanks! Love the P12 its an amazing beautiful instrument. Cant put it down!

A single Layer will give you 4 saws, just detune them.

To get the 7 saws, just use the two layers, set 7 oscillators to saw and detune them.

One day the P12 may get the supersaw from the P2 but not yet.

Thanks guys! Hope DSI adds the supersaw sometime to P12.

I found a patch called Virus that is very close so I worked from that.

I think it is a DSP capacity issue, the super waves on the P2 use up more processing time than the normal waves and the P12 is already running at near it's limit. They don't want to just add the super waves and have the P12 glitching all over the place as it is running out of steam. So if possible other parts of the code would have to be optimised to make room for the super waves.

While it may be nice to have the super waves, the P12 already has a ton of sonic potential.  I would think the reason they added the super waves to the P2 was to compensate for the instrument being primarily monophonic.

I have a P12 and am considering picking up a P2 in the future due to it's CV outputs and more prophet 12ish goodness with a twist.  First thing though... Elektron analog 4!

The P'12 and the Pro-2 have the same DSP, but on the P-12, each DSP is shared by two voices.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but on the P12 wouldn't unison mode with a saw oscillator and slop or LFO modulation of pitch give a similar effect to a supersaw oscillator?
