Krisp1 TZ-VCO

Post by Stereotactixxx » Sun Jun 19, 2016 12:15 pm

Hello 5U wigglers. Pictures of the new Krisp1 TZ-VCO have previously been published both on FB and here on Muff's. I have been fortunate enough to get to spend a couple of weeks with this very competent and well featured VCO, shooting and recording some of my experiments. Five of the patches are strung together in this video. I hope you will enjoy!

It sounds great!
Is he designing circuits now or is it a build of someone else's design? If so, whose?

First off A huge thank you Stereotactixxx for making the demo's the only input I have had in them is making the VCO so :hail: :hail: :hail: Stereotactixxx

Nar it’s not my circuit design I wish I was that bright! I had some input with the features but I know when to get the smart guys in 8-)

The TZ-VCO Has been designed by the same guy who did the OCTO Quadrature LFO

We have been working on this for well over a year now and Phil has done a stunning job

I hope to have them in the store Im the next day or so but will post here when they are
Cheers :guinness:

Wow!!!
Great demos!
In some places, it looks like you are bringing the BD drum in and out via the frequency control on the filter (pinned high can't hear it, bring it low and the drum appears).
Love that and also the unmuting via patchcord insertion.
Wonderful demos, and worth listening to as cool tracks on their own.
Really really super great stuff!!!

Right on... Estonia, home of Arvo, as well.

Kind of the same as this, then?

yup with in my opinion a few improvements as the larger PCB allowed for said improvements :)

I hope to add this to the K1 systems at some point which is MOTM compatible but this may be a while out

also as a note I just put the first few in store at a slight discount

The differences between the two oscillators are -
Different transistors used in the expo converter to match the standard set of parts Paul already uses.
The sine shaper is different from the first Liivatera modules, but is now the same.
The larger board allows the inclusion of trimmers for the modulation depth switch, which some users have asked for but I can't squeeze into the Eurorack design.
And it is a great demo video, it is very satisfying to see what people can achieve with these modules, and makes all the effort worthwhile, many thanks for that.

Thank you guys for watching my demo of the TZ-VCO. :chug:
In case anyone is curious about further sounds from this terrific oscillator, I've recorded five more patches.
You'll have to do without moving pictures this time, but to help you cope with the lack of visual clues, the TZ-VCO is the only oscillator used in the signal chain.
I have off course used other VCOs as modulators, and downstream from the TZ-VCO are the usual filters, VCAs and a delay.
Enjoy!

The small discount is set to run out soon but I have no finished units and need to restock
If you would like a TZ-VCO at the 240 GBP price and also would like to pay while the GBP is in the lowest position its been for 30 something years then Please send me an email before the end of June and I will do my best to get one to you in good time

Will you be bringing some to Cambridge next month? Might be an opportunity for folks attending to save on the shipping.
