  7. Exploring the Tonality of Instruō Neóni: An Analog Oscillator with Through-Zero FM Functionality

    The Instruō Neóni is an analog oscillator with through-zero FM functionality that sets it apart from other oscillators in the Instruō product line. Its precision soft sync and directional hard sync modes, nonlinear wavefolding, and internal modulation routings make it the most tonal FM sounds imaginable. Unlike traditional FM, where an oscillator momentarily stalls as negative voltage pulls its frequency down to 0 Hz, Neóni inverts the polarity of its waveforms until positive voltage pulls it back through 0 Hz. This behavior allows for complex waveforms with less non-harmonic sidebands. The module also has linear through-zero and traditional FM with AC and DC coupled functionality, split sawtooth morphing, individual waveform outputs, and LFO mode. Overall, the Instruō Neóni is an excellent choice for anyone looking to explore the tonality of through-zero FM.
