Modular Diary – 070

I thought it would be fun to go back to the beginning and make an Audulus patch of the Putney-Revox setup that initially got Rob Hordijk going with his Blippoo/Benjolin/Rungler circuits.

I remembered that Robert Syrett had put together a VCS3 inspired oscillator a while back and thought that I’d use that as a point of departure. My first tryout is the basic setup with two oscillators and two delays. It’s fascinating how much one can get out of such a simple patch, especially when bringing the waveshaping into play.

I made a second version with a square wave on the second oscillator so as to get a little closer to the differences between the two VCS3 oscillators, also spending a some time with the iVCS3 app taking a look and listen to what exactly is going on with them.

A next step could have been to try and recreate the VCS3 oscillators more accurately, but then I noticed Robert Syrett’s recent µWaveBender and thought I’d try out a quick version with the (anti-aliased) Audulus node oscillators and the µWaveBender. The principles of the original in an updated form.
