Useful to simplify path design (unison, lfo etc), and so performance.
A must have feature!

That would be cool. It's the reason why I mainly use Chris Kerry's OSCs, performance is an issue when building big projects.

A freeze pin would also really come in handy, for LFOs.

If i understand you right, use a many to 1 switch and hook the oscillator on one pin and a fixed values set to 0 on the other. Or else the EVM SE oscillator has one (in the free section).

Yes, that will great but ALL oscillator phase must be reinitialized in same time with the sync pin or Jeff will add also a reset pin...

The oscillators phase must be reseted with the sync pin (if exist) :

-when the Prg Change
- if the state of one of them  change (on/off) even the phases should not be correct and the sound became very little...
