Square Earth Theory – audio slicer pedal square wave examples

I’ve quickly made this diagram to show how the square wave outputs from the two oscillators a and b can be added together using the various gates on the SET.

By the nature of the logic and with the oscillations both having 50% duty cycles the or gate will always allow the signal through more than the and gate. A only is simply the output of just a. In this mode the B led will not be flashing to avoid confusion. You could actually create the output wave from these examples with a single oscillator with a variable duty cycle, but in practice the dual oscillator approach creates many unique patterns you couldn’t create with a single oscillator.

    I think I understood that. Sweetness!
