Pulse Wave Dialog
The button brings up a separate dialog to allow creation of monophasic or biphasic pulses with adjustable levels. The first pulse is called A and the second B. The B pulse always starts immediately after the A pulse ends.
The default pulse is biphasic, with the A pulse positive and the B pulse negative.
When both A and B pulses are done, the remainder of each cycle is at the 0 Level. The cycle time is determined by the main wave frequency.
You can set Pulse B Width and Level to 0 to get monophasic (unipolar) pulses. If Pulse A Level is +100%, the pulses will jump from 0 Level to +100%. By setting 0 level to -100%, the effective pulse amplitude will be 200%. This may be useful when driving external circuits such as the Wide Range DC Pulse Converter, or the super-simple 2 Channel USB Plug-Type Sound Card modification discussed under Simple Sound Card Unipolar DC Modification... small, and less than US $2.
You can specify the pulse widths in proportional units (Percent or Degrees), in which case they will change as the main wave frequency changes. If you specify fixed units (Samples or Seconds) then the frequency doesn't affect the pulse widths, it only affects the baseline time at 0 Level between repetitions.
Wave=Pulse or Wave=4 sets the waveform of the current channel and stream to Pulse. Use prefixes like L.1.Wave=Pulse to specify channel and stream, here Left Stream 1. Note that this command format sets Wave but does not open the Pulse dialog. This is the usual approach for modifying Generator setups.
Alternatively, you can use Channel Select variable Ch to specify the channel and stream via Ch.Wave=Pulse, where Ch has previously been set to 0-3 (for L.0. to L.3.) or 4-7 (for R.0. to R.3).
To set Wave to Pulse and also open the Pulse dialog (if the Wave dialog is already open), use a D. prefix as in D.L.1.Wave=Pulse.
