  1. Sputnik Modular's Variable Waveform Generator: A Buchla-Inspired Discrete Oscillator with Unique Animation Controls

    Sputnik Modular's Variable Waveform Generator is a Buchla-inspired discrete oscillator that offers unique animation controls, including a built-in waveshaper, saw animator, and drive circuits with attenuation amount inputs. The module features five dedicated audio outputs, linear and exponential FM inputs with attenuators, and good tracking. It also has a VCO/LFO switch and hard sync, which can work with any waveform for varied effects. Users can adjust the level of wave-folding, produce symmetrical and asymmetrical wave-folding effects, control the position of additional saw waves for animation, and more.

  2. Exploring Versatile Modulations: An In-Depth Look at the cubusynth-4vclfo Eurorack Module

    The cubusynth-4vclfo Eurorack module, featuring four triangle waveform Low-Frequency Oscillators (LFOs), is a versatile modulation tool for creating intricate and dynamic patches. Each LFO has a frequency knob and CV inputs with attenuators, allowing for precise control over modulation rates. Additionally, the "Aux" input is normalized to the four CV inputs, enabling simultaneous modulation of all LFOs with a single signal. Plugging a cable into a CV input breaks its connection from the aux input, providing more opportunities for experimentation. Overall, the cubusynth-4vclfo is an essential addition to any modular setup focused on creative modulation.

  3. Exploring the Capabilities of the Steady State Fate Zephyr Through-Zero Oscillator

    The Steady State Fate Zephyr Through-Zero Oscillator is a powerful analog VCO that combines features from the Spectrum VCO and the Zero Point Oscillator. The module features an 8 octave rotary switch, variable response TUNE control, dedicated SINE, TRIANGLE, and SAW outputs, and PWM Pulse output with two types of PWM. Additionally, the Zephyr has a voltage controlled Z-WAVE output, dedicated normal FM input, and a multi-mode ZMOD input with attenuator and INDEX VCA CV input. The ZMOD modes include true Through-Zero Phase Modulation, ZYNC (hybrid reversing sync with linear TZPM), and FLIP (hard waveform reversal). This module is a must-have for any enthusiast interested in exploring the capabilities of through-zero oscillators.
