How to make the oscilator sound more dirty?

For example 3xosc or other synths the waveform sound more dirty. Mybe its distortion i dont know but it sounds diffrent. How do i make this?

For sines and triangles feed some of the output back into it phase upto about 0.25 any more and it heads towards white noise.

Try taking the output of the feedback and feeding it into the filter cutoff mod to dirty up the filter.
As I said the feedback only sounds good on sine / tri osc but the feed into filter will work for all waves.

I've used a seperate osc so you can choose the type of growl.
