The 4046-M, renowned for its ability to accurately track and lock onto the phase of incoming signals, divides its oscillator signal into two distinct harmonic voices. Each voice can be manipulated into a range of intervals, offering a rich sonic palette. The heart of the 4046-M lies in its unique and primitive modulator circuit, capable of producing a spectrum of sounds from the wildly abstract to the strikingly functional.
