Tone.Oscillator↳ EXTENDS Tone.Source
Tone.Oscillator supports a number of features including phase rotation, multiple oscillator types (see Tone.Oscillator.type), and Transport syncing (see Tone.Oscillator.syncFrequency).
CONSTRUCTORnew Tone.Oscillator ( [
.partials↝ Array #
The partials of the waveform. A partial represents the amplitude at a harmonic. The first harmonic is the fundamental frequency, the second is the octave and so on following the harmonic series. Setting this value will automatically set the type to “custom”. The value is an empty array when the type is not “custom”.
.type↝ string #
The type of the oscillator: either sine, square, triangle, or sawtooth. Also capable of setting the first x number of partials of the oscillator. For example: “sine4” would set be the first 4 partials of the sine wave and “triangle8” would set the first 8 partials of the triangle wave.
Uses PeriodicWave internally even for native types so that it can set the phase. PeriodicWave equations are from the Webkit Web Audio implementation.
.context↝ Tone.Context READONLY #
Get the audio context belonging to this instance.
.volume↝ Decibels #
The volume of the output in decibels.
.state↝ Tone.State READONLY #
Returns the playback state of the source, either “started” or “stopped”.
.unsyncFrequency ( )#
Unsync the oscillator’s frequency from the Transport. See Tone.Oscillator.syncFrequency
.syncFrequency ( )#
Sync the signal to the Transport’s bpm. Any changes to the transports bpm, will also affect the oscillators frequency.
.connect ( )#
optionally which output to connect from
optionally which input to connect to
connect the output of a ToneNode to an AudioParam, AudioNode, or ToneNode
.disconnect ( )#
Either the output index to disconnect if the output is an array, or the node to disconnect from.
disconnect the output
.toMaster ( )#
Connect ‘this’ to the master output. Shorthand for this.connect(Tone.Master)
.stop ( )#
Stop the source at the specified time. If no time is given, stop the source now.
.start ( )#
Start the source at the specified time. If no time is given, start the source now.
.unsync ( )#
Unsync the source to the Transport. See Tone.Source.sync
