Sine Wave patch

This is the sine wave patch described in this article.

It nicely works as a lead or bass sound. Even though a few slight harmonics are recognizable in a spectral view of the sound, it does sound like a pure sine wave.

Sine wave oscillator

The Sub 37 offers the fantastic variable waveshape oscillators, giving you triangle, sawtooth, rectangle and pulse waveshapes, as well as everything in between.

However, the oscillators don’t offer a simple sine wave. In deed, a sine wave features no harmonic content except for the fundamental note, so it does not make much sense in subtractive synthesis. Still, it does have a very soft and pleasant character that I personally really like. Here’s a way to create a sine on the Sub 37.
