A warm analog-sounding eight-note polyphonic synth that uses just ONE oscillator and various FX to create smooth warm synths and basses. It also includes a SECRET WEAPON to create experimental sounds that will feed your inner experimentalist. Didn’t know you had one? Read on!
OSC 1 is in itself a 4-waveform oscillator featuring Sine, Triangle, Sawtooth and Pulse (with variable pulse-width). So far so standard. However…
THE SECRET WEAPON
OSC 1 also includes a deliberately incorrectly wired patch that creates a feedback loop distortion effect called “Wire”. This simulates the crackling and erratic jumps in volume caused by a dodgy jack-plug in a guitar amp. On a sine wave it produces gargle and on high value pulse waves it goes mad. This is perhaps the USP of this instrument. Use it responsibly!
