We describe progress in the measurement and control of the carrier-envelope phase-slip frequencies of pulses generated by a femtosecond optical parametric oscillator. Example applications of such control are presented and include the generation of a frequency comb spanning nearly three optical octaves, and the creation of a train of 30-fs pulses via coherent pulse synthesis. Future prospects for frequency combs based on femtosecond optical parametric oscillators are discussed.
