The Holiday Synth
The Holiday Synth is the original Marsynth sound creation device. It is a four oscillator drone synth with plenty of sound shaping control. Each oscillator has independent volume and pitch control. Pitch can be controlled by either a knob or a photocell (light sensor). The Holiday Synth also has oscillator sync capabilities: oscillators 2 and 4 can be sync'd by 1 and 3 respectively (two pairs of sync).
The Holiday Synth's sonic palette ranges from low grumbles to screeching highs. With only one oscillator in the mix, the sounds can be fairly simple and consistent; great for deep drones. When two or more oscillators are mixed together, their frequencies beat against each other at varying degrees producing all sorts of patterns; great for chaotic rhythms.
