Controls

  1. COARSE
    This knob dials in the coarse frequency of the oscillator across approximately 11 octaves. The yellow led indicates the rate visually.
  2. LFO/VCO
    This switch switches the Dixie II between LFO and VCO mode. When in VCO mode the oscillator operates at audio rates with frequencies between 20 Hz up to almost 60 kHz. When in LFO mode the it can achieve cycles from several minutes in length up to low audio rates of around 1 kHz.
  3. FINE
    This knob sets the fine tuning of the oscillator, its range is ±6 semitones on either side of center.

Inputs & Outputs

  1. 1V/OCT
    This is the primary pitch voltage control input.
  2. LIN FM
    Linear frequency modulation input.
  3. SYNC
    Flip sync input. When the input sync signal crosses 0V, the oscillator waveform will reverse directions.
  4. PWM
    This input sets the width of the PULSE output. The range is +/- 5 V. Note that the width can go down to 0% and up to 100% at which point no wave will be produced. With nothing connected to this input the pulse width is 50%.
  5. TRIANGLE
    Triangle wave output.
  6. SINE
    Sine wave output.
  7. SAW
    Saw wave output.
  8. ZIG-ZAG
    Zig-zag wave output.
  9. SQUARE
    Pulse wave output with a fixed 50% duty cycle.
  10. PULSE
    Pulse wave output. The width of the pulse is controlled by the PWM input.
