Dove Audio WTF Oscillator Kickstarter now live. Modular Synthesizers

WTF Oscillator

Hello all,

After a break from the world of synths for a while (just over 12 months) I'm back with a bunch of new ideas and concepts. The first of these is the WTF Oscillator which is a whole new way of morphing from one wave to the next, something never done before.
It uses 32 waveforms, 28 all new and four classic (sine, saw, square and triangle) waveforms and everything is fully CV controllable well into audio range (around 2.5khz).

I'm about to launch a kickstarter (I'm just waiting for approval from Kickstarter) to raise money to build this. It will be available in BOTH euro-rack and MU format modules.

I recently showed this at the Brighton Modular meet and it was very well received.

Here's a couple of videos to wet your appetite, a full explanation of the new morphing technique will be given as soon as the kickstarter goes live;

Many thanks

You had me at "wavetable". There's no such thing as enough digital in modular as far as I'm concerned. Let us know when the Kickstarter goes live! I want in on this!

Hey Paula, welcome back!

One thing I wondered after seeing the videos is, can the start point of the window through the wave cycle be changed? It starts at 50% through (or 25/75 in dual mode).. if you open say 10% to the second waveform, could you then change the start of that gap to 20-30% from the default 45-55%?

This was something that I did consider, and for the next generation of modules (assuming this gets funded) I would definitely implement, but this would mean more knobs and a bigger panel.

I was fortunate to see the prototype in action a few weeks ago and it's completely brilliant. I don't even have a modular rig yet (well other than my Neutron gateway drug) but I totally want one...

They plugged the WTF on Sonicstate live yesterday. Probably a nice bump there. Best of luck with this fantastic product.

Thank you, I was watching

For the record, the modulation rate goes well into audio range, just over 2Khz to be precise.

DivKid has a video of the WTF VCO. Not wasting time I see.
