We have two new VCOs out now in our 1.0.9 release, and they couldn’t be more different from each other.
Kitchen-sink is a one operator FM module with an ADSR, but adds hard-sync, multiple waveform outputs, a waves-shaper, and voltage-controlled waveform morphing.
Kitchen-sink uses oversampling to control the aliasing, like most good FM oscillators. It is fully polyphonic.
Kitchen-sink also has a “hookup modulator” command that can save a lot of time by automatically adding patch cables between two instance for two operator FM. Kind of like the very clever way NYSTHI auto patches FM modules, but different.
Substitute is our tribute to the Moog Subharmonicon. It is 8-voice polyphonic, and each voice has two independent VCOs, each of which has two programmable subharmonic oscillators for a total of 6 oscillators per voice.
A built-in quantizer gives a choice of traditional equal tempered scales or just intonation, which meshes well with the scales implied by the subharmonics.
The CV on Substitute of course can control the VCO mix, but also control the divisors of the sub-harmonics, which can sound really crazy.
Substitute uses MinBLEP to eliminate the aliasing of the pulse and saw outputs.
The VCV plugin library workers must have been working overtime this weekend – this new build made it into the library very quickly. Thanks!
