Great synth indeed! Very easy to use. Upgrade price is fair, too. (As Strobe 2 owner)

How does cypher 2 handle unison spread? I see it has unison, but the width knob is for filter pan spread. Is there a way to adjust unison spread?

Simply assign a Unison mod source to the ‘pan’ knob.

But the complete procedure is this, in case you don’t know:
1. Set the unison voices to your liking
If you set a lot of voices then you may need to turn up the poly voice count up in order to have enough to play polyphonically.
2. Select ‘Unison-+’ in one of the Mod Slots
3. Assign it to the master fine tune - as much or as little as you want. This provides the main unison sound.
4. Then assign union to pan.

The fun only starts though, because now you can assign the ‘unison’ mod source to anything else! One trick is to use the unipolar unison source and assign it to oscillator pitch by setting an octave. This gives another oscillator! :) so even though Cypher has 3 main oscillators, we can get 6 distinct pitches from it.

ah! thanks Himalaya, been having a play with cypher 2 this morning and didn't know if i was missing something. i was only using one filter so the width knob didn't make sense. :)
