ZI VCO?

It's a popular request, but it still feels like a gamble to commit funds and time to prototyping my VCO ideas into a commercial product.

If you want a feature packed and flawless oscillator that tracks a million volts per octave,
There are a lot of them out there. Get one of those.

If you are interested in a strange drone machine with tubes no one has ever heard of being used for audio....well then I think you might find this interesting.....and a very beautiful piece of sculpture love love

Should I start prototyping this now?
Or should I wait until later?

There is no getting around it, this would consume a lot from your power supply,
but it wouldn't be anything that the robust supplies that synthesizers.com offers couldn't handle.

If I could sell 10, that would be great.
This is truly the definition of WEIRD

When I get the tubes, I'll take a picture.
There aren't enough words for the beauty love (trust me you will agree)

Based upon my user requirements, I'd have to ask if it could somehow ride in a Buchla natively or via MM format. Also, what would it bring to the party that would be different from the R-54/55 and Wretch?

I'd love to hear 'er!

Well..... For you I think we could work something out.
I would be willing to investigate the possibilities of it working in a Buchla power distribution system, but it would still consume a lot.
I think it is something you would be interested in checking out wink
It will still run on +-15 and +5, which the Buchla power system can provide,
but you wouldn't be able to run as many modules on the same supply.
Also....this one wouldn't fit in a "stackable folding" case smile

HAHA the golden question! lol

-Completely different tube(s)
-Different behavior and waveshape

Overall, The Wretch Machine Oscillator section is still the ultimate.
I have used a lot of Metasonix thingies, and that Wretch machine osc section thinger-ma-thing is pretty cool applause

This one would definitely score more points in the "it looks cool" category,
but soundwise and featurewise, The Wretch will still win.
The R54 is a lot different too, as it generates a sine wave and then that sine gets perverted into other shapes with the additional makeup gain,
This/these things I am interested in exploring would generate different waveforms and the tracking would be all over the place.
Lustmord would know what to do, but I don't think I can say the same about ELP lol

Send me an email and we can work out a skype or phone chat to talk more

I can't wait for some more details on this one!
mecanikill
Put me down for one! thumbs up
weinglas
we're not worthy

As you might have guessed wink, I am with Kent on this one. Want one so much for my little 2 Space or as a standalone. SlayerBadger!

Maybe it could track a little bit on audio like the wretch or the r54? But if it screams and growls, i am pleased! nanners

SlayerBadger! screaming goo yo w00t sounds very interesting!

cheers
blz
I'm game for one as well

Any update on the VCO?
Pictures or a possibly a price, so I know how much stuff I have to sell?

That looks like some seriously powerful voodoo... I mean weaponry... or... Something.

Can someone send me money so I can send it to Brian?

I just sent Ulf something that your going to want to give him money for.

hihi w00t

It's not a VCO though hihi

Sounds recorded direct:

first audio recording
Dark Ambient drone
Processing a wretch/retarded synch
Bananallama!
thermionicjunky
Fucking yes
blz
ok so when will this sexy item be up for sale good sir
weinglas
This sounds excellent SlayerBadger!

Could you tell us a little bit more about the patches of the three demo tracks, please?
zerosum
Thanks smile

First two are just adjusting the tune knobs with some delay from the Mangler on an aux send.

Third one is a Wretch machine being processed through the 2050/5823 osc prototype. No delay hihi
It gives you an idea of how it will sync/process external sources.

As far as availability, it will be a few months at least.
There will be some other modules that will come out first,
but this one is definitely the crowning piece, I want this thing to be done more than anyone else hihi I'm going to have two of them! w00t

screaming goo yo
Kent
That's one meaty motherfucker! thumbs up

The 2050 is a buzzy fucker, no doubt.
The 5823 is the screaming howler.

There is a lot of voltage on that PCB,
It's not safe to be handling,
the videos and sounds were made within
my first hour of seeing the prototype.

When I get something behind a panel, I'll explore and document more...
I guess I have to design a panel.... zombie

Thought I would chime in to say this sounds awesome! Chugging Beers
