2019 the year for analog THROUGH-ZERO
Recently a lot of new modules have arrived that explore the possibilities of through-zero frequency modulation and more (phase mod etc.)

I've been wanting to get a module for this, but can't seem to fully decide.

These are my first-impression choices:

1. Joranalogue Generate3
Has frequency and phase mod separately for odd/even and mix outputs

I love his modules, high quality and well thought out.

2. Ssf zero point oscillator
has 2 oscillators? Or they are separate outputs with morpheable waveshapes.

From initial demo's I preferred the Gen3 , but from the recent divkid demo's I preferred the sounds of the ZPO. But both modules have huge range, so might just be that demo happend to demonstrate sounds I prefer.

Anyone have experience s with these yet? Don't know if Mr Divkid himself lurks around here and would care to chip in.

Other contenders GODSPEED+ which is the digital tzfm core of their complex osc

Xaoc's ODESSA their new flagship osc can do tzfm too, and has a very original approach.

Was totally swept away by initial demo sounds, but more recent demo's less so, I fear it might be interesting but always have a specific character, much like the 4ms Resonator bank, which is uniquely original, but a lot of folks seem to get tired of it's signature sound rather quickly


Please share your comments and insight about these and other offerings

if a mod would care to change the title to 2020?

I like the Doepfer TZVCO's. They're cheap, simple, and fun. Stick a VCA between a pair, and you've got FM for days.

One oscillator.

I've been using FM Aid with Mannequins Mangrove, love detuning slightly and playing with Mangrove's harmonics.

FM Aid gives an atypical tzfm tone, but I like it.
