Dynamic List of Modular Synth Terms

Here is my ever growing list of synth terms:

Oscillator: Generates the base, starting sound.

Waveform: The oscillator can generate different shaped sound waves. A few of the most common analog are square, saw, and triangle.

Filter: A sound modulator that shapes the waveform after it has been created by the oscillator. The sound wave is shaped by letting portions of the sound pass.

Patch: The sum of all the connections within the modular synthesizer resulting in the final sound.  

I will be adding more terms as I continue post about my modular synthesis experiences, so check back often.
