Great addition, though I am covered with Korgs own emulation...

Looks ok. Will probably trial it as and when that bundle comes out.
Slightly confused on how there are 4 different waveforms, but a lot of the controls and ins and outs refer to just OSC 1 and 2. Unless I missed some way of defining OSC1 as a certain mix of the waves and OSC 2 as another?

As a Minimoog (clone) owner I think I’d miss being able to manually coarsely tune each wave to get fifths, octaves etc especially when it’s dead easy for a developer to add that.

Also, there seems to be an Analog/Digital switch which isn’t explained - is that some sort of way of simulating instability if you want it?

Hey WatchTheGuitar - let me chip in here - I'm Hans from RequestForMusic...
2VCO has 2 Oscillators that are both capable of outputting multiple wave types simultaneously...
So if you would use OSC1 only (although you don't really switch the second one off) you could mix SINE, TRIANGLE, SAW, SQUARE and NOISE together to create a total sound from that OSC1.
OSC2 normally follows the same pitch and wave settings as OSC1, but the DETune knob allows you to vary the pitch from OSC2.
That way you can slightly detune OSC2 OR use the MULT knob to multiply the detune effect so OSC2 can have pitch below or above OSC1 of up to more than 2 octaves.
So using a combi of DETune and MULTiply, that fifth or octave is easily obtainable.

Sorry if I forgot to explain the Analog/Digital switch:
In ANALOG mode the oscillators can drift slightly and the transitions of the wave's pulses are less harsh than in DIGITAL mode...
The drifting can best be heard when OSC1 and OSC2 work at the same pitch - especially using a SINE wave you can hear that one oscillator can almost 'phase out' the other OSC at times...
In DIGITAL mode this will not happen, because indeed the frequency stays stable... so - they have a slight sound difference, and indeed the slight drift is different...

I hope that helps??
Cheers Hans

I hope you'll have the opportunity to try the demo and hear what it can do...
I always like the 'old' analog fat oscillator leads, and this allowed me to get that - when you combine the slight detuning and some glide (which can be set to only affect one of the OSCs), such a lead sound is real easy to create...
And detune/multiply OSC to an octave below and use SAW as a wave and you could have some serious bass tone...
But you can always experiment and do some phase modulation as well...

If you do have the chance to try it out, please let me know what you think!
Have a great Memorial Day!
Cheers
Hans

I will trial the bundle, when do you think it’ll be out?
Also I think Memorial Day’s a US thing, we have Remembrance Sunday in November, but at least we get this coming Monday off as late spring bank holiday. :party:

I spent some time last weekend porting my Nonlinear Circuits emulations over to Voltage Modular. They were published today. It is a free and open-source bundle:
https://store.cherryaudio.com/bundles/n ... collection

These might not be for everyone, but I find these to be a ton of fun to use.

wow great, shared in the Voltage Modular User Group, that is quite active nowadays, with developers and users (of course).

The 2VCO is already out...

Ah sorry - I naively assumed you were in the US... I am in the Netherlands myself so no Memorial or Remembrance days like that... although we had some days off a couple of weeks ago...
Enjoy your Spring bank holiday!!! Make it a Modular one :) :wink:

VM has now real additive capabilities, in a very modular way, based/inspired on the synclavier, use it for experimental patching, or... everything is possible...

made by Request For Music, creart here on KVR.

TAO.png

demo it, use it!

The TAO in its simple form is an additive oscillator, but one with 28 harmonics. First dial in how many harmonics you want to use, then drag the slider to set the volume for a specific harmonic.

The real beauty of the TAO however shows when you use multiple TAOs. In that case you can use each of them as either CARRIER or MODULATOR. To do that, take the output of a second (MODULATOR) TAO in to the PM or FM inputs of the first (CARRIER) TAO. This way, when dialing up the PM, you end up with sounds that remind of the DX7 or Synclavier, where you could think of each TAO as an operator. By using multiple TAOs, you can recreate the 'algorithms' of the DX7 for instance, while still having more options because every 'operator' is also an additive synthesizer.


In Chinese philosophy TAO is 'The Way' Find yours using TAO!

How does feedback work in VM? One block delay?
