The Quantize Module In Bazille
Because of how Bazille is designed it has some different options available. There are some modules that you wouldn’t find in most other software synthesizers.
Today we’ll be looking into one of these; The Quantize module.
The quantize module is something that goes a long way back.
Older synthesizers could easily change in pitch when you moved them or even when the temperature of the room changed!
This caused the problem that your carefully programmed patches suddenly didn’t sound that good anymore.
You could calibrate the oscillators again and spend hours fine-tuning all your synths, but a better way would be to use a quantizer.
A quantizer is a device that forces all incoming signals into per-defined values.
So when you insert a quantizer between your pitch modulation and your oscillators and you set it to a value of 12, the oscillators are always getting perfect semitones!
So it is mainly a handy tool to use, but you can also use the module for more creative approaches.
For example, try setting the quantizer to a value of 1 and send some heavy modulation through the module, it will force all incoming signals to a value of 1, which can give great (and also loud) results!
So experiment with this on filter cutoff, pitch, resonance, phase distortion or basically anything you like, be careful though, it can get loud!
