The Waveplane oscillator is a new dimension in wavetable synthesis. It allows 6 dimensions of movement for the output wave being generated giving unprecedented amount of motion in a wavetable oscillator. It’s designed to fit in your modular synthesiser, either in Eurorack format or MU format.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The oscillator generates four simultaneous waveforms and, at its simplest, it lets you seamlessly morph between four different waveforms using the X and Y controls. Along with the X and Y controls having CV inputs, each of the four waveforms has its own wavetable, providing you with 6 dimensions of movement for the output wave being generated, giving unprecedented amount of motion in a wavetable oscillator.
Each ‘corner’ wave has 32 waveforms which are arranged in wavetables. There are, of course, the usual suspects – sawtooth, sine wave, triangle wave and square wave. The remaining 28 waveforms are all newly created to mimic certain types of sounds, like vocal formants, distorted waves, metallic sounds and many more.
You can select the waveform for each corner; each corner has independent control voltages enabling you to create incredibly rich sonic textures.
You can also invert the waveforms on the right of the or at the bottom of the waveplane, this lets you create more rhythmical wavetable style sounds.
CV CONTROL OF WAVEFORMS
We’ve added the ability to change all four waveforms independently using control voltages. Used in conjunction with a sequencer or multiple LFOs, this gives you an incredibly powerful sound source full of previously unheard of sonic power.
For the Eurorack version the waveplane oscillator module requires 16HP of space and needs 50mA from the +12V rail, 50mA from the -12V rail and 100mA from the 5V rail. The module must be supplied with a regulated 5V supply rail in addition to the +12 and -12 rails.
The MU ‘dotcom’ version is 3U wide and requires the same supply current as the Eurorack version, 50mA from the +12V rail, 50mA from the -12V rail and 100mA from the 5V rail. The module must be supplied with a regulated 5V supply rail in addition to the +12 and -12 rails.
