Soulsby Oscitron Eurorack VCO Demo part 1

Soulsby Oscitron is listed as a 8 bit oscillator, but I think that is underselling what this thing really is.

The truth is this is a Vocoder, oscillator, wave shaper, phaser, bit crusher, and much more all in one module that can be freely hacked and updated. The wood ends are the first sign that this is a module unlike any other. you can use those wood end checks to hold new faceplate cover templates in place as they are released essentially updating the whole faceplate as you go. This is a truly novel approach to the idea of a multi function eurorack module. The menu system is easy to navigate while having quite an impressive depth of features. For that reason I have decided to handle demo videos of this module in parts. enjoy the first part in this series below! for more info check out Soulsby Synths. price is roughly $299 at USA dealers

Animodule Lil Monster VCO Eurorack module gets taken for a spin!

Animodule is a small Eurorack and MU format analog synthesizer module maker. Based out of Pennsylvania, they create hand built analog masterpieces that shake houses and dominate mixes.  The Lil Monster VCO is a hand built Triangle core OTA based oscillator with HUGE pulse width modulation and excellent features such as sync, and exponential / linear FM. It’s calibrated for 1v per octave so it will work with most standard analog synths. The Circuit board is etched using a C&C machine so these are not some mass market hunks of junk. These modules are built to last and really feel well built. the knobs have a strong sturdy placement the pots are not wiggly it just feels like someone actually put care into what they were making. Respect it.

Take a listen to its intense sound in this short video here and stay tuned for more articles featuring this manufacturer.
