A couple of weeks ago, Sylvia and I bought a Eurorack Oscillator module called "Twin Waves MKII". It's made by Klavis. We've been wanting to explore this interesting sound source for a while and finally got around to adding it to our System.
Twin Waves is a powerful, versatile Oscillator module which has 2 sound-generating sections. Both of them can be set as audio frequency Oscillators or as LFOs. At only 8hp wide, Twin Waves packs a lot of value for the money and the "MKII" version provides even more flexibility than the original.
While recently exploring this module's capabilities, I wanted to set everything back to the Factory Defaults. I followed the Manual on how to do this but was a bit confused by its description. I contacted Klavis and they said everything I did was correct. It was simply the Manual's description of what I would see that was not reflecting the feedback the "MKII" was providing.
They explained exactly what I should see on the module and provided details on what a "Reset" actually does within the Twin Waves MKII.
In order for me to remember this, I simply added the following information to the bottom of Page 19 of the Manual:
Twin Waves MKII
During the Reset, the screen does not scroll. All it does is show "DE" for a second or two. So, as soon as you see the Sine wave, it's done. The Reset does not affect the 3 modulation pots which are purely analog!
How can you be sure that the Reset did work?
After Reset, the first wave is selected everywhere (Sine for VCO and LFO in both sections) and all parameter tweaks are back to their middle position (when turning the encoder, the display starts from the thin line in the middle). Besides, all clocks, syncs, etc, are disabled.
I'm simply passing this information along, in case there are others who own a Twin Waves "MKII" and haven't discovered this yet.
