I picked from the manual if i tune MG to 164.77Hz (=E3) it is slightly detuned to Osc1. In fact it is 1 octave below Osc1, or did i anything wrong?

I've got a nice detuned three-osc-sound if i set Osc1 finetune=0, Osc2 finetune=-0.08 and MG freq=330.88Hz (=E4).

Greetings Daniel

Hi Daniel.b,

It might be a typo in the manual -- are you sure the footage of osc1 and 2 were set to 8'?

Hi Mike!

Okay this would be the point. The Oscs in my patch are set to 16'. I thought this would be the standard tune? Because in the initpatch the oscillators ar also set to 16'

I believe 8' is the standard footage for the oscs, at least what the manual considers the reference tuning. But its not a big deal, as long as you get the basic tuning you like its easy to switch between octaves in ablpro..!

Okay, i've tested it. If i set Osc1&2 to a footage of 8' the MG (at 164.77Hz) is 2 octaves below the other oscillators.

Not a big problem at all, but i was a little bit irritated if i tested the tutorial from the manual at first.

Oh but I think the tutorial is trying to show how to build three osc patches, its intentional that the third is tuned one oct below the other two.

Okay, probably i misunderstood the manual. :D

I had other things in mind. Big sawleads, locked-hands style chords and stuff like that... :)
