Hollow Sun Intros Oscillosine

Captures The Sounds Of A 40's Experimenter's Laboratory      02/03/11
Hollow Sun Intros Oscillosine


Hollow Sun has announced Oscillosine, a new virtual instrument that's described as "reminiscent of an oddball inventor's strange homebrew creation."

Oscillosine is designed to conjour the sights, sounds and smells of a 1940s experimenter's laboratory... glowing valves, otherworldly audio and maybe a hint of pipe tobacco.

The samples for Oscillosine are taken from a vintage tube Hewlett Packard sine wave test oscillator, estimated to date back to the 50s or 60s, maybe earlier.

Oscillosine uses Kontakt's modular synthesis facilities to create a compact sonic laboratory machine, capable of producing authentic sci-fi and vintage electronica blips and bleeps and klings and klangs and drones and squeals as well as smooth pads, solid sub-basses, mellow leadlines, etc., suitable for more modern musical genres.

The user interface is modezled on an old Tektronics oscilloscope. Its rather non-standard layout is designed to encourage "experimentation and serendipity to create sounds that are maybe unimaginable. It's certainly great fun to play with."

Audio demos are available at the Hollow Sun site.

Pricing and availability are TBA.
