Dove audio is proud to announce a completely new concept in waveform morphing for it’s new oscillator module for both Euro and MU(MOTM and dotcom) modular systems.
The Window Transform Function (WTF) is a radically different way to morph between two waveforms, create a hybrid mix of two waveforms previously unheard of.
Pre-production prototype module in euro-rack format.
The concept is a relatively simple one, two waveforms are used (front and rear) and are synchronous. A ‘window’ can be opened in the front waveform allowing a portion of the rear waveform to be ‘inserted’ into the front waveform. It is also possible to have dual windowed waveforms (as shown in the picture above).
Below is a drawing showing the resultant output when windowing a sawtooth with a square wave.
Example WTF output wave in Yellow, with a red square wave for the front waveform and a blue sawtooth for the rear
Front wave, Rear wave and Window width have full independent control via CV.
A video showing the window transform function in use is given below;
The oscillator also has a tuneable noise feature, demonstrated in this video;
Two short audio demos can be found here –
The WTF oscillator will first be available in both Euro-rack and MU(dotcom and MOTM power) modules via our Kickstarter campaign, here –
About Dove Audio (www.Dove-Audio.com)
After a 12+ month break the world of synthesizer design Paula Maddox is back with a new company and fresh new ideas in the form of Dove Audio. She has a proven track record spanning nearly 20 years for delivering high quality and unique designs to the industry.
Dove Audio aims to produce unique and innovative audio products for the electronic music enthusiast and professional alike.
I plan on having Paula on a show in the Near future to discuss Dove audio and the WTF oscillator.
Kyra is initially scheduled for full production launch at The 2019 NAMM Show, January 24-27, in Anaheim, California, competitively priced at €1,899.00 EUR as a desktop/rackmount model (with a keyboard version to follow later in 2019).
Nebulae v2 is a granular sampler and DSP platform. Its phase vocoder audio engine provides elastic audio, which can be time stretched, granularized, and mangled to no end. With independent control over pitch and speed, and granular controls such as overlap, window, and density, finding new sonic territory is only a knob turn away. Nebulae can use live audio input, a recorded buffer, or audio files as the source material for its powerful audio manipulations. The live input buffer can record up to five minutes of stereo audio at 48kHz, 24 bit. In addition, up to 75 MB of stereo audio can be loaded simultaneously through the USB port. No naming convention or special formatting necessary; just plug and play. Nebulae lives a double life as an open source DSP platform with an extensive library of off the shelf alternate instruments. You can turn the module into a lush reverb, spectral delay, or tape-style looper simply by loading a new file onto the flash drive. Do you want to tweak one aspect of an existing instrument, even the default functionality? No problem. No prior coding knowledge is necessary to tweak and refine existing firmware to your liking or start with one of our templates. Alternate firmware files can be written with Pure Data, Csound, SuperCollider, and even bare-bones C programs.
