Syncing Audio Oscillators to Vidiot


Is this possible? Is there a way to sync an audio oscillator (I have a DPO) to one of the Vidiot’s oscillators or the video sync its self? I’m gonna try tonight when I get home, but wanted to see if anyone here has done anything like that.


Definitely experiment with this! Open experimentation is part of why our patching format shares the same connectors and is safe to patch with audio synths.


I will report back with my findings!


Didn’t have much luck syncing. I was trying to use the vidiot’s horizontal square wave out. Looking back, I think I need to try again, but gain up the square wave more. Here are some results that I got using the horizontal sine to FM the DPO. I also got carried away with mixer feedback :slight_smile:


Awesome! Yes, see if you can amplify the signal. The Bridge module does this, but any amplifier gain can probably work in this case. Some sync/reset inputs only respond to signals around a 1.6V threshold (so the 1V output of the Vidiot won’t reach it.)
