    An electronic circuit designed to generate a period electrical waveform at a particular frequency. Oscillators are found in computers, wireless receivers and transmitters, and music synthesizers. Early synthesizers used oscillators as the raw source for creating sound, using filters and envelops to shape the sounds.
