Author Addac VCO 701... worth it?
DonKartofflo
GOD i really don't make any easy decisions very frustrating

For two Months now i#ve been thinking about which oscillator I should get for my first eurorack, sometimes I think "thats it" and then the next beast comes round the corner and my world breaks down help
my newest oscillator love is the ADDAC VCO 701, a copy of the club of the knobs c 921 oscillator quite a pricey and complicated Module.. 400 Eurobucks is it eek!

Was listening to some sound samples of the raw waveforms:

c 921 Waves

And loved the sound..
but really, for 400, I could also get me two pittsburgh oscs or two vcobs which is a hard competition for every single vco.

So maybe you guys have a listen and give me your thoughts if the ADDAC module is worth it's exorbitant price thumbs up

not tried it, and maybe this is unhelpful, but there's really no "bad" oscillators - if it's holding you up from even getting started, I think you should just take the plunge and get something. VCOb sounds great (I have tried them) and yeah - being able to get two for the price of one is probably more important than the ADDAC one even being subjectively 'better'.

The oscillator on the youtube video it's the COTK C921B, not the C921.
The C921 offers you more possibilities.

i've already had the pleasure try the ADDAC C921 version and i can tell you it sounds really amazing.
That said, when you see how much trimming is involved to tune everything tight you'll understand the price.

I'm pretty sure André will release audio demos very soon thumbs up

you'll probably have a more enlightened opinion about this VCO over the 5U forum, since this module has been around on that format for a while
DonKartofflo
oh that's nice that some user experience come into play here Mr. Green
if it's that fat, and really good sounding, i'm willing to enlarge my vco budget hmmm.....

i was wondering why there are no audio demos, even no official addac ones confused

how would you describe the sound?
lightworks
well, it's really hard to describe the sound without falling on silly cliches like "it's super fat and rich, awesome bass etc..." but i think it really is seriously, i just don't get it

I don't own one yet, but i'll definitely get one at some point.

I have no experience with the oscillators you stated above, but i think you should just find the one that matches your needs and go for it!

There's a new video online about the VCO:

Reptil
sweet sound!

I suggest as you're just getting your system going, 2 oscillators are better than 1. Get ones that can double as LFOs later down the line and have more fun with FM, doubling, harmony, detuning and the rest. See if you can find a pair of something in BST or 2 different kinds.

1 oscillator can get pretty boring quick, don't forget basic stuff like mixer, attenuators, etc....

the sound is just so beautiful in that demo ADDAC.

How are you getting polyphony? Are the oscillators tuned that way or are you using some module to get polyphonic mode?

Love how musical the demo is : )
__ag
Thanks Ian!

The polyphony comes from the 3 independent channels of ADDAC501 Complex Random in Quantized Mode!

all the very best

DonKartofflo
Purchased it and will do some sweet demos very soon thumbs up
It is the most beautiful euro module i have ever seen (apart from the addac fixed filter bank. that red is godly!) applause

That's wierd... the 5U version of the C921 is only €285 for the complete
full-tilt module
. Usually Euro versions of modules are less expensive.
Modcan certainly is.

Any chance of a demo of a single 701 ?

I think it may be because addac is a very small manufacturer who builds pretty small batches. COTK in comparison is a pretty big 5U manufacturer, so he can buy stuff in larger batches and sell more...
It looks nice next to a certain dual wavetable vco btw hihi

His and my demos of the 701 are here.

It's worth every cent this osc.
tiny333
Thank you flo

Yeah i know i have just caught a bad addac bug

Saving as we speak

Xx

thumbs up
flo
This Addac bug that you speak of, it's bugging me for some time as well... hihi

You will not regret it though...

Speaking of the 701s, I really would like to hear them going thru a ladder filter like a108, rs100s or mf101. Inserting a .mix in between would be the cherry of the cake.... hyper
tiny333
I noticed your bug flo

You lucky man what units have you got atm ??

Im selling a bunch of stuff atm to fund an ultra wav

The 8 selectable samples just make that killer
