More Oscars

More Oscar sounds - and this time more trippy! I figured out how to use the internal sequencer (not easy, but fun once you get used to it) and how to lock it to a clock from my computer. All sounds from the Oscar, a bit of delay from the Bel BD80

An exploration into additive synthesis on the 1983 OSC Oscar duophonic synth. I created a few simple harmonics and played two layers in duo mode, so there are 4 voices with each pair going through a digital delay line (BEL BD80). I then added a long reverb using the Lexicon 224

The video is made by me filming the sound going through an oscilloscope then messing it up with a vintage video mixer

Here is lovely little Oscar:

This is a demonstration of the Emu Modular doing something unique. It has a module called the Triple Latch which if patched in a certain way will divide down the pitch of an audio input by one octave. As there are 3 latches available it can create 3 downward octaves. So I patched an oscillator into latch one, then into 2 and 3, and the original signal and the divided ones into an Emu mixer to get 4 octaves from one VCO. Pretty cool! I used the ARP2500 sequencer to send the Emu a pattern, and used the Emu Voltage Controlled Transient Generator to vary the envelopes (using other outputs from the ARP Sequencer as CV sources, which locks it into rhythm). There is also an LFO'd notch filter and a very early Ibanez digital delay mixed in

Here is a description of how the Triple Latch works:
