Which Oscillators are in your modular kit (the 2020 edition)?

What Oscillators are you rocking in your modular rig, right now, in February of 2020?

I'm light on dedicated Oscillator modules. All I have that isn't a part of a Semi-Modular/etc is:

* Cranial Saw

(Shameful, I know. I will say 10 Hail @ Derp s and make sure to buy more in the coming months).

I don't have much in the way of really new eurorack VCOs. Here's what I have in each active case.
4 x Synth Tech E330
1 x Modcan Triple Osc
3 x Happy Nerding HM VCO
1 x Plaits
1 x Qu-Bit Chords
2 x Happy Nerding HM VCO

And I have several other euro VCOs lurking about and LOTs of 5U VCOs . . . .

I wrote the title as Modular and not just Euro specifically so you'd feel welcome to include your 5U. Please do. Oscillators are Oscillators, as long as they're Modular (here in this thread at least).

1 x Noise Engineering Cursus Iteritas Magnus
2 x Noise Engineering Basimilus Iteritas Magnus
1 x Noise Engineering Manis Iteritas Magnus

1 x Martin Jan Koehler's MU Plaits build
2 x Moon Modular 501D
3 x Mos-Lab 921-B
1 x SSL 1420 Scat-Talker
1 x SSL 1440 Radio Music
2 x SSL 1200 VCO
1 x Synth.Com Q167 LFO++ (LFO but goes high and tracks 1v/oct)
2 x Electrosmith 3340 VCO
1 x FSFX 107: Supra Resonator (aka Rings)

Some eurorack VCOs I forgot to mention:
2 x TipTop ONE

1 x Studio Electronics QUADNIC
1 x Mutable Instruments Rings
1 x Synth Tech E340 Cloud Generator

Oscillators :
Doepfer A-110-2 x2
4MS SWN (six oscillators + six audio-capable LFOs)
Pittsburgh Modular VRL (out of rack)
DFAM (out of rack)

Now, in the rack, there are other potential oscillators :
RYO VC-Sequencer (can be operated at audio rate)
Disting MK4
Mutable Instruments Warps
Mutable Instruments Stages (easter egg mode)
Mutable Instruments Kinks (noise output)
Grayscale Permutation (at audio rate)
Malekko Dual Borg

When I think about it, that's quite a lot of possibilities for not so many modules

I got these in the racks right now

Rossum Trident
Mutable Sheep (Tides)
Mutable Warps
Roland Dual VCO (Malekko)
Instruo Tona
Klangbau TZ VCO

Pretty happy with this setup. Not sure it will change anytime soon, but modular...

Using a wide definition of "oscillator" but only including modules that track 1v/o (or use MIDI):

Intellijel Dixie 2+
Intellijel Plonk
Qu-Bit Chord V2
Pittsburgh Modular SV-1
Synthesis Technology E352
Mutable Instruments Tides
Mutable Instruments Elements
Mutable Instruments Rings (x2)
Mutable Instruments Yarns (MIDI)
Mutable Instruments Ripples (in self-oscillation)
Make Noise 0-Coast
Roland Aira Scooper
Roland Aira Demora

For honourable mention:
Make Noise Maths
Make Noise Wogglebug

Mutable Instruments Braids
Mutable Instruments Braids Clone
Intellijel Shapeshifter
1010Music bitbox Sampler
Doepfer A-110-2 Basic VCO

I'll probably get rid of the analog VCOs because square and saw waves bore me to death.

Nice to see both of these in the last two posts. I finally pulled them out and put them in their own dedicated keybed. They are robust enough to do so!
