New Buchla-Format Algorithmic Oscillator Is Like Mutable Instruments Plaits On Steroids
1979 has introduced the Algorithmic Oscillator, a Buchla-format VCO based on Plaits by Mutable Instruments.
The successor to the 1979 DAO, the AO has more knobs, more parameters, and more I/O than the DAO, plus features not available on the original Plaits module.
The company calls the AO “an ideal standalone voice module for small Buchla systems.”
- High-fidelity digital oscillator (48 kHz, 16 bit)
16 synthesis algorithms
- Auxiliary output with complementary audio signal
- Internal VCF/A with variable LPG mode
- Voltage-controlled decay envelope*
- Dedicated knobs for envelope decay and VCF/A amplitude*
- Pitch quantizer (12-TET and Octave options)*
- Inverting attenuators for all CV inputs (0-10V range)*
- Envelope CV output (0-10V range)*
* Upgraded features not available on Plaits
