Z3TA Sync Question

All right, I got rapture at my local music store and love it!!! I also downloaded the Z3TA demo and love it too... enough that I ordered it as well. I got stumped however, trying to make that osc sync sound you always hear from analog synths.

When I sync osc 1 to osc 2 and change the pitch of osc 1 or osc 2, nothing happens but pitch change. I then tried to fm modulate osc 2 with osc 1 and it kind of sounds like the sync sound I was looking for in the first place. What am I missing?

Thanks for your help

    Welcome to the forums, Steve. Check out the Sync Screamer preset [A072 in the original set], and see if that isn't a little closer to the 'hard-sync' sound that you're after. The first oscillator is a saw .wav sync'ed to Osc 2, and dropped an octave. The second is a square .wav, transposed up a major third. Moving your mod wheel shifts Osc 2's pitch. Right-click on the Effects button to take that out of the equation (temporarily), and hear the basic patch a little clearer. HTH

    Thanks b rock. That's what I was looking for. I'm still not sure why my patch from scratch did not do this but I'm new to Z3TA, I'm sure I'll learn.

    One of my favorite synths I ever owned was an oberheim Xpander. I should never have gotten rid of it. I have been looking for something that could approach it's routing flexability for some time now and I think I have finally found it in Z3TA. Even the manual refers to the matrix 12 which was the keyboard that followed the Xpander.

    Thanks for your help.

    BTW: Wish I would have thought of your signature line. Very clever.
