Electronic sound tools creator Vermona have announced availability of their uniCYCLE voltage controlled oscillator, a six-waveform VCO (Voltage-Controlled Oscillator) Eurorack module.
Vermona have adapted and reworked the oscillator circuits from their flagship ’14 ANALOG SYNTHESIZER to Eurorack small-format modular system usage in the uniCYCLE voltage controlled oscillator, a compact (10 HP-wide), high-performance, and stable oscillator.
Besides classic sawtooth, triangle and square offerings, the uniCYCLE voltage controlled oscillator generates sine, even, and a special sawtooth with doubled frequency for a total of six waveform outputs. PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) is not only available for the square wave, but also even (a shape that only has even-numbered harmonics) can be transformed into a sine-like wave, while the doubled saw turns into half-pitched triangles.
There are also six outputs, including LIN FM (Linear Frequency Modulation) and EXP FM (Exponential Frequency Modulation) as well as H – SYNC – S (hard and soft sync).
A space-saving single knob allows access to the uniCYCLE voltage controlled oscillator’s frequencies in three different modes. Tune either controls the low frequency or audio range, respectively adding or subtracting exactly one octave. In this calibrated mode it provides a ‘dead-zone’ around its center position, making it easy to access all three octaves without needing a center-click.
