Nozoïd has released the OCS-2 synthesizer.
A spokesperson told us, "This little machine, dedicated to knob addicts, is designed by Cyrille Henry. In short, it's one of the smallest subtractive synths on the market but actually has a lot of controls and features. This little tech prowess, based on an Arduino micro controller, has a similar filter to Moog synths, 2 oscillators with 17 waveforms each, and has many options for modulation (3 LFO, ADSR, CV GEN...) that can be routed with a smart matrix system available on the keyboard. It's also semi modular, can be mounted on an Eurorack modules and the code is open source."
2 VCO providing 15 different waveforms
1 VCF : multi-mode, including a 24db/octave low pass resonant filter
3 LFO : 2 with configurable waveform, 1 with CV frequency control
1 custom CV generator with 4 algorithms : Attack Release, dual LFO, Random, Step
1 audio effects processor with 4 effects : Distortion, Delay, Bitcrush, Waveshaper
1 ring modulator
1 CV controlled mixer for VCO1 and VCO2
2 octaves keyboard with portamento
1 digital matrix to connect signals to modulation faders
1 stereo line-IN with envelope follower and gate control
1 MIDI input : note / velocity / pitch bend / modulation wheel / control change
3 analogue CV IN and 1 GATE IN
1 light sensor
