i don't remember a whole lot of it, but my old matrix-6 had 4 selections for
sync, 0-3, with 3 being hard sync, 1 being soft sync and 0 being off. i
usually set it for soft sync and detuned one of the oscillators most of the
time. it seemed to give a richer sound than hard sync did, especially when
modulating one of the osc's with an envelope of an LFO.

i know the high-end VCO of the doepfer a-100 has a soft sync input. does
anyone know if this module is out yet? i'm curious as to how it sounds.


three things to remember about me:
1) i'm not a dj
2) i have no intentions of becoming a dj
3) i'm not a washer and dryer repairman either
