We have a new module out now, called Basic VCO. It is meant to be a small, no frills, VCO that is exceptionally clean, fast, and small.
At only 3HP wide it qualifies as a “tiny” VCO, but it does manage to pack in more features than you might expect, including octave/semitone/fine knobs, seven waveforms, and full PWM and pitch modulation with attenuverters for each.
Because Basic VCO only has to generate one waveform at a time, we were able to meticulously optimize the CPU usage for each waveform. The resulting CPU usage is very, very low.
We’ve also used all the tricks that we know to eliminate distortion and artifacts in the audio, so it has very little aliasing, almost no DC on any outputs, and not random clicking and popping.
In this release we also made in improvement to Kitchen Sink. The sensitivity and response of the wave-shaper depth was not good. It’s much better now.
