This oscillator is something special. From smooth & nuanced to dynamic & aggressive to wild & chaotic, the Serial-Function Oscillator is a shape-shifting monster. It is like a segmented organism that can be cut into pieces and regenerated at will, with modulatable segment counts ranging from 1-32. The start and end points give form to each segment as they are drawn on the visualization (there are also dials for precise settings). After a turn of the edit mode dial, a mathematical function can be chosen by dragging a segment waveform, and, in the next edit mode position, a modifier is specified to affect the mathematical path for tonal variation. Segment modulation adds further complexity. It’s not so free-form that it’s useless, while offering endless discovery — it sounds amazing.
It’s a giant, but it moves with agility. You’ll find intriguing possibilities with the nuanced controls, from multimode pitch tracking/ sync following to an internal noise source and an onboard amplifier to a number of exciting modulation capacities.
Try random things for immediate intrigue or clear your afternoon for endless investigation, and this device will accommodate. Add the Serial-Function Oscillator to your rack when you’re up for uncovering a world of unheard trigonometries.
Connect this expander module to the Serial-Function Oscillator for added modulation possibilities. With this unit, the oscillator’s individual segments (start, end, & modifier) can be modulated more directly. Just connect the three poly jacks (polyphony must be set to 8) so that each row of the expander’s inputs can link to LFOs or whatever (unconnected jacks leave the oscillator in its drawn state), resulting in a constantly shifting waveform with segments independently fluctuating over time.
