Name for a phenomenon where a patch programmer or performer is attempting to set two VCOs to frequencies that are close together, to achieve phase shifting effects, but instead the two oscillators become synchronized. This occurs because the two VCOs are imposing transients on the power supply during the core reset cycle, and if one VCO is close to its reset voltage, the transient from the other VCO's reset can case it to reset also, which effectively phase-locks the two VCOs. The problem is most seen in modular synths that have insufficient power supplies or poorly thought out power wiring, but it can also happen in integrated synths if the designer does not take care to prevent it.
