You may also use the DDS 2 module to process an external audio signal:
- Connect an external audio source to the audio input on the rear side of the Super 6 by using a stereo 1/4 inch jack.
- Press down a key or engage the hold mode. Turn the MIX rotary control fully clockwise so that only the audio signal of DDS 2 can be heard.
- Turn the RANGE rotary control to the leftmost position marked LFO.
- Flip the toggle switch to the upper position next to which it says AUDIO
IN in inverted letters.
- If you still hear an audio signal on top of the external audio signal, ensure that the output signal of LFO 1 in HF TRK mode is not send to the audio channel of DDS 2. If LFO 1 is in HF TRK mode and the mode toggle switch is set to DDS
2, LFO 1’s signal will be mixed in with the external audio signal your Super 6 is receiving through DDS 2’s audio channel.
Note: When you feed an audio signal into the signal path of the Super 6, it will trigger a gate signal as soon as it passes a certain threshold level, unless you select POLY 2 in the voice assign section.
As you may have noticed these settings activate DDS 2’s LFO mode. In this mode the audio signal of DDS 2 is bypassed to give way to an external audio signal, which is routed via the DDS 2 channel into the mixer.
You can control the balance between the audio signals of DDS 1 and an external audio source with the MIX rotary control in the mixer section. Here, the external audio signal simply replaces that of DDS 2. After the mixer, the external audio signal is routed through the voltage controlled filter (VCF), the voltage controlled amplifier (VCA) and the effects section all of which allow you to further modify and process the incoming signal.
You can also adjust the input gain of an external audio signal:
- Press the SHIFT button to the right of the patch and bank select buttons.
- Turn the MIX rotary control in the mixer section to adjust the input gain.
- Return to editing your sound by pressing the SHIFT button again.
If you don’t adjust the input gain manually, the gain defaults to a line input level that makes an external audio signal as loud as the Super 6’s oscillator signals.
The audio input also features a gate-trigger detector so that the envelopes and LFO 1 in reset mode will be triggered when an incoming audio signal reaches a threshold determined by the input gain level. The LED to the left of envelope 1 will indicate when an external audio signal passes the threshold. It will light up every time a trigger impulse is being received.
