The Oscitron is an 8-bit wavetable oscillator for Eurorack. It is based around the Atmegatron audio engine but also has a lot of different features, which make it more suited to the modular environment.
One of the key differences is the ability to capture wavetables via an audio input. There is also a “continuous capture” mode which produces vocoder-style effects.
The resolution of the audio engine can be altered from the Atmegatron’s 32 sample wavetables, down to 16 and up to 128 samples, creating radically different timbres. There is a clock input that can be routed to many different parameters. There are 5 CV inputs for controlling the most common parameters. 16 patches can be stored internally.
As with the Atmegatron, different software can be uploaded to the Oscitron. A port of the Odytron software is ready for release in the first quarter of 2017.
Pitch and Filter CV inputs are 1v/oct.
All other CV inputs expect unipolar 0-5v CV signals – Sequencers, Random Voltage Generators, Function Generators (Maths etc..). Some attenuation may be required.
Bipolar CV signals such as standard LFOs will need to be attenuated and offset, to make them unipolar. A dedicated module from Soulsby for this purpose (Uni-Five) is available on special order.
