ORgone Accumulator MK2

Post by batchas » Wed Jun 19, 2019 12:29 am

I have a few Orgone Accumlator MK2 ready and calibrated (7 octaves). If anyone is interested, just send me a PM.



Here with some external effects on top:

Just got mine yesterday. I'm very happy with it!
I was mainly interested in getting some Autechre-y kind of tones like in these tracks:

http://soundcloud.com/d01/d-glitchean-d ... the-orgone
http://soundcloud.com/lampeo/orgone-acc ... the-orgone

I've found it's also a very fitting complement to the Bug VCOs. If you're not familiar with this module -- basically it is 3 wavetable oscillators (plus a 4th for modulation) and with CV, you can morph between these. It also has built-in, per-oscillator effects, a drum mode, something called "pulsar synthesis," and CV control over pretty much Everything. After spending a day with it, the layout is intuitive (despite having a pretty full panel). Complex, trippy, glitchy, musical, deep!

Big thanks to Robert/batchas. They are beautifully made modules. :yay:

Here with Tom's upcoming module (Quantizer left to the Orgone, not the LFO from old blue system at the right side):

Here some sounds made with the OA MK2 (without effect added) :

Excited for this one.

:hihi: does the video really match the audio? seems like the notes lighting up on the quantizer don't match what we're hearing.

Also was wondering, are you using one of your custom wavetable collections here? I still need to try those out sometime soon.

Yes the video matches the audio. I think the LED flickering due to the video make it a bit tricky to read.

On these videos I am using the "standard" wavetables collection present also on yours.

The sound palette on the Orgone seems infinite with all the parameters which can be changed on the module.

Killer stuff both of you!
The Orgone Accumulator sounds like a seriously powerful tool, really rich waveforms, paired with the quantiser :ninja: wowsers.
Must resist GAS. :help:

One more... Sorry Chris :mrgreen:
Also very interesting to use the Orgone in drum mode for something else than drums or percussions:

The last 2 waveforms on the Mod wave oscillator are quite special :)
Here an example when the Orgone is set to internal FM and the Index is set to maximum.

I found some recordings with the Orgone in action (drone kind of):




Here in drum mode:

Drum mode with effects afterwards and radio music:

Here used as an oscillator:
