Continuing the discussion from Instruo Cs-L:
Hello, I thought I’d start a topic dedicated to complex oscillators, their makers, differences, and most importantly the sounds they create.
My naive assumption is they are all derived from the buchla 259 [contains 2 oscillators, a modulation bus, a wave shaping section, and a wave folding (timbre) section]. Edit: great overview videos here: https://vimeo.com/137696291
I don’t own any distinct complex oscillators currently but have been patching them up from elemental parts.
Would love to know how you patch them, innovations and other complex-like patches. (see also: 2 x Mangrove vs complex oscillator)
So I don’t come empty handed, here is my attempt at one I created on the ER-301. I modified a preset created by @Starthief over at the Orthogonal Devices forum to use phase modulation for linear FM (https://forum.orthogonaldevices.com/t/starthiefs-custom-units-feedback-keeper-complex-osc-wavefolder-etc/2851).
complex osc 004.unit
complex osc 010.unit (73.3 KB)
- fixed RM/AM section
- added wave shapable modulator
- added wave folding final section
