Reissue waveform loudness

Postby Marzzz » Mon Apr 29, 2019 12:17 am

For some reason, I am just now noticing that the triangle and sharktooth waveforms are significantly quieter than saw/square/pulse. I know they have less harmonic content/higher harmonics, but I am finding I have to turn up the volume somewhat to get a patch as loud as the others. For example, if I have the main output set at "2" I have to push it to "3" to balance the loudness. Am I just imagining things?? I somehow don't remember this happening previously. For the record, this is with low amounts of Emphasis (resonance) and filter fairly wide open.

yep I believe that is normal & due to the harmonic content

I just tested mine & it does the same

Yeah, I thought so- I must have been either going senile, or haven't used the triangle/sharktooth waveforms much lately!
