Odessa is an instant buy for me. All the things I love about wavetable synthesis but generalized and controllable. Cannot wait. :banana:

Looks neat. Sounds neat. Love the intense parameterization and attention to detail.

Looking forward to hear about the Leibnitz/Lipsk integration.

There's some really lovely sounds and textures coming out of there. I definitely want to hear some more focused demos though; I think there's a lot more potential for beauty and weird growliness and cyberpunk FMish squeals that's only being hinted at here.

It makes me want to explore additive stuff in WaveEdit/E370 a bit, to decide if I need this when the release date comes around.

As for Zadar: that wasn't the greatest demo of it; I'm not sure I understand how the chain stuff works but it seems like some aspects of the firmware aren't really settled yet anyway. I'd like to see and hear it more in practical use -- to get a feel for how controllable the shapes are for something ADSR-like, how well the curvature responds for AD envelopes, how it works as an LFO, and some of the more exotic shapes. But I like what I've seen so far.

Please be sure to let us know the results of your explorations! :tu:

That sounds phenomenal, and has me rethinking my plans a little...

highlight of superbooth so far for me, can't wait for it, and drezno/lipsk seems like another auto-buy.

true about the drezno/lipsk. was kind of confused when I first saw those modules and forgot about them... now looking more in details, they are pretty usefull for numerous tasks it seems. bit crushing and/or gates from signal/audio can probably get some amazing results.

will look deeper for sure.

Very well thought of additive engine!

Need more demos. They seemed to have just woken up.

omg this harmonic osc is so cool
i want to pair it with my shepeshifter :deadbanana:
i'm also curious about the implementation with lipsk
xoac win the superbooth

the quadruple adsr is cool aswell :hyper:

:eek: So thats my next oscillator sorted... I can imagine it would have a gazillion sweetspots with some finely adjusted wobbly CVs up all those modulation inputs.

Yeah I heard some incredible sweet spots in that video but they were so quick to crank it up to max partials and keep whizzing through stuff.

Hope we get another video with a more focused patch soonish.

This is displacing some of my momentum for adding a DPO to my system, but seems like they might also work well together. Thanks for the demo!

It seems to me that the Odessa and the DPO are two completely different beasts. I always found the DPO rather harsh, while from that brief demo I think the Odessa hardly needs a filter at all.

I think its a very smart move that they actually added the tilt inside the module as from the demo it sounds like it definitely needs a low pass filter, close by.

Mmmm ... finely adjusted wobbly CVs ... :banana:

Also, I noticed that we may now put to rest the question of how to pronounce "XAOC," as they quite clearly say "chaos" (as I suspected ...).

That only leaves the significance of those years on their modules (1975 variable spectrum harmonic cluster oscillator). Anybody have a clue what that refers to?

this looks super cool, but i'm looking forward to hearing a more musical demo. ill never understand squealing and screeching as demonstrating the capabilities of a module. its like test driving a car and just flooring it in neutral.

Looks like a possible must-have. Like others here, I’ve only become intensely interested at this point. I REALLY need to see/hear more before knowing it’s a definite must-have. Tons of potential.

I hope divkid and/or mylarmelodies and/or color my sound gets to make a video about Odessa.
