I feel like whoever came up with the concept and DSP for this is brilliant, but should have worked with someone who can build a very clean, clear, readable, intuitive UI that makes such an unusual synth design accessible. Or else it should have been a modular oscillator with some a lot of the editing stuff trimmed back, maybe -- it's got a vibe that would fit right in with The Harvestman stuff and I bet it would sound amazing through an LPG.

Waverazor Dual Oscillator Module Brings New Types Of Synthesis To Eurorack


A firmware for 1010's platform that runs that 80s neon GUI isn't what I had in mind -- I was thinking more of a 12HP thing with about four knobs and CV inputs, which uses the synthesis engine in a sort of curated way. So I'm... not quite cautiously optimistic, but I will watch this one.

(And of course this is announced after I decided I had too many VCOs and started downsizing my modular. :hihi:)

The Waverazor Dual Oscillator module runs on a modified Series 1 platform, but it's a standalone product at the moment. While we have a special licensing partnership with 1010music, MOK is still a separate company and our firmware cannot be loaded on 1010's modules, or vice versa. Sorry, we know that's not what you want to hear... On a hopefully positive note, we do like 1010's swappable firmware feature, and we would like to support something similar to that for the future MOK modules we have planned.

All the best,

Cheers for the clarification. Shame its not going to run on a stock 1010 module as firmware, but I guess its understandable from a commercial perspective.

Just got around to checking out the demo and I'm liking it! Will need to read the manual in-depth soon though. It's amazing how many different sounds you can get out of just one template patch. And using a sequencer to modulate a parameter like Mutant AM, etc...is really nice. 8) I do tend to prefer more hard/digital like sounds so that helps as well...I can imagine the Waverazor would be the ultimate drum synthesizer as well. :party:

Anyone else using Push (v1) and having an issue assigning Waverazor parameters to the Push rotary knobs? Looks like it automaps around 16 settings or, which is about 2 banks. I average around 8-10 banks per synth so definitely need more control over the synth...to heck w/ the mouse. :lol:

Latest OneSynthChallenge featured Waverazor... if you like you can check out my entry, it's multiple WR instances, no other VSTi, lots of free DAW FX, created with Bitwig. At the End of the track I even use WR Oscilators as FX Unit, by routing in Audio into one OSC and playing the FX with Midi notes...
