Arp Axxe Pulse Vintage Analog Synth Sawtooth Waveforms

Text from the video :
  • The Axxe has sawtooth and pulse waveforms. This video hightlights each waveform and uses modulation source to vary the pulse waveform width.

Arp Axxe Self-Oscillation

Text from the video :
  • The filter on the Arp Axxe has the ability to self-oscillate, and act like an independent oscillator, producing a clear sine wave tone. While this is a very simple sound, it is also very appealing. I used a vintage Roland spring reverb on Arp Axxe as well.
