I design the pot and 3d print them using a Selective laser sintering (not a crappy Fused deposition modeling). Then, they are inked in black. I cut a small piece of plastic to create the white marker.
They are glued to the fader for a good grip.

Definitely! Still, I'm personally gonna have to save up thanks to the UK's crappy post-Brexit exchange rate. :(

Now that's some good thinking there.

I put few video of the proto there :
https://vimeo.com/album/4565418/

I'm actually working on a "tutorial" video, and on the documentation.
I will solder a first batch next week. It should be ready in 1 or 2 week!

Hot damn. That is a capable machine. Awesome drone possibilities.

I loved the external audio modulation. You only used one oscillator, can all three modulate incoming audio simultaneously?

yes, it's a drone machine, but can also be glitchy, or used to create strange percussive noise.

This video shows only basic modulation in order to be didactic.
So yes, the 3 oscillators are identical. They all 3 admit 3 modulation fader that can be configured as FM/AM/PM or WS. For each fader, the modulation source can be 1 of the oscillator, LFO, CV in, joystick or audio in.
all of this in the same time...

The only difference is that oscillator 1 use audio in Left, oscillator 2 use the centre (L+R/2), and oscillator 3 use audio in Right.

I made a documentation :

The audio in signal can be used in 2 different ways.
• An envelop follower connected to the left input can generate gate signals in order to
easily synchronize the MMO-3 to an other sound machine.
• The audio signal can be used as a modulation source for the oscillators or the joystick.
the “AUDIO IN” modulation source is in fact 2 sources : the left and right signals.
When the audio in is selected to control the oscillator 1, joystick X- or Y- : the left
channel is used. The right channel is used to modulate the oscillator 3, joystick X+ and
Y+. The left and right average is used to modulate oscillator 2.


This is awesome.

Few months after the 1st orders, I'm very glad of all the positive feedback and comments made on the OCS-2 and MMO-3.
Lots of professional and amateur musician are using them to create amazing sounds.

Here is a selection found on social media :

I'm planning a more experimental percussive synth, with feedback and effects, but I did not finish to organize everything. So I did not really start the prototype yet.
I have no idea of the production date...

I made a small tutorial on how to update the synth firmware.
http://nozoid.com/update-your-synth/

There are lot's of minor correction in the last version of the firmware, and I encourage anyone to upgrade to the last version.
