It’s a pleasure. thanks.
Thanks to everyone who made videos using the new VCOs. It’s very gratifying to see them in action.
I’ll have one soon. It’s more of my phazing stuff but I was using the ole FM-OP and decided to swap it out for the Kitchen Sink. It’s good, though I should probably check what some of the options actually do in the manual.
Not too many surprises in this one. It has a certain “similarity” to the FM OP, one could say. But there are probably aspects of the wave forms and the shape modulation that reading would probably help.
Actually I’d allowed myself to become confused. It’s the other new module that I hadn’t understood.
oh, ok. That one is confusing
These are great additions!
Does Kitchen Sink do through zero linear FM?
It certainly does! That’s what the input called LFM does. Actually, to be 100% honest, it uses through zero linear phase modulation, which most people call “FM”. There is a brief section on the manual about this called " A pedantic note about FM vs. PM", Here’s a link if you are interested: https://github.com/squinkylabs/SquinkyVCV/blob/main/docs/kitchen-sink.md#a-pedantic-note-about-fm-vs-pm
Always great to see VCOs that are brand new in VCV’s arsenal Substitute made me curious about the Subharmonicon and a little puzzled: @Squinky.Labs, doesn’t the Subharmonicon has one pitch information for each VCO (i.e. 2 V/oct inputs)? I’m asking you because Substitute only has one pitch CV which drives both main voices, as far as I understand from your manual. Did I miss something? Thank you again!
EDIT : I think I’m completely wrong here. They are 2 different seq but the sound is the same from both (made from the 6 osc)
You missed something just merge two v/oct into one poly and the resulting out will be 2 different outs. Bruce will explain it better in the next post
EDIT 2 thanks Lexander, now it works :
This works if you send two different polycables to the Vol inputs of each oscillator; one should have 10V on channel 1 and 0V on channel 2, while the other should have 0V on ch1 and 10V on ch2. This way you can turn off osc 2 on ch1 of the output, and turn off osc 1 on ch2 of the output.
On the Subharmonicon, the V/Oct for oscillator 1 is normalled to oscillator 2. So Substitute isn’t inaccurate in this sense, it’s just missing a jack.
Yeah, I’ll be the first to admit it doesn’t have every feature that the moog has. I think in most cases where you want to have two independent sides it’s pretty easy to just use two separate instances? And of course the poly methods work, too.
I like them! I won’t embarrass myself by talking about them in technical terms, but here follows a gratuitous vid of 4 minutes of noisy wild knob turning, feat. the two new oscillators.
haha - This sounds really cool! And thanks for playing with the new modules. Squinky Labs approves this message.
Excellent explanation, thank you! I previously tried the poly cable in pitch CV but didn’t quite get it! Thanks for your explanation!
What is that psi op module ? I can’t find it in the library. Also your drummer is probably addicted to meth, maybe it’s time for an intervention. Also also, bouncing wires are hilarious.
Psi Op :
And for @Aria_Salvatrice a question, what is this module ?
Now kids! Follow the dancing cables.
