WALDORF PULSE + (PLUS) SN 96240276

"The Pulse has V. C. O.'s . Voltage controlled Oscillators , pure analog !

Wolfram Franke at Waldorf says:
the three waveforms are made differently, and only have one thing in common -- they aren't processed by a D/A converter. The oscillators are not digital, but analogue. The pulse waveform is controlled digitally; the clock stipulates when the pulse waveform has to be at its maximum or minimum point. If you use pulse width modulation or cross modulation, this is also generated by the clock itself. The clock has only a 0 and 1 position, so the Pulse's cross modulation is mathematically identical with ring modulation. The sawtooth waveform is voltage-controlled; the voltage is generated from the D/A-converted clock signal, with additional parts creating the ramp. The triangular waveform is the most complex one; it's a combination between the sawtooth waveform and additional parts that process the down-ramp.

The PULSE sounds different because it is newly engineered for MIDI control of everything, pre-NRPN. It is far more stable than 70's analogs.
Yet with correct programming this thing can sound HUGER THAN A MINIMOOG when you use the LFO's and MOD properly. The Pulse's VCOs are THICK."
