OCS-2 is a digital, semi-modular, analogue style synthesizer.
Small, but very powerful and flexible, it provides an incredible sound quality.
Dedicated to knob addicts, this synthesizer is full of features that define its own unique sound.
Why is it so special?
First, the sound quality is impressive. This is not a cheap 8 or 16 bits synthesizer : it implements state of the art audio synthesis algorithms.
OCS-2 provides a lot more than a modern dual oscillator monosynth. There are a lot of unique features :
30 control knobs
Few atypical waveforms with incredible fat sound
LFO that can continuously change waveform
A CV generator with different algorithms to generate random to rythmic modulation
4 audio effects
A very powerful digital connection matrix
A light sensor to control sound with hand gesture
Incredible sound quality
What is inside?
2 VCO providing 15 different waveforms
1 VCF : multi-mode, including a 24db/octave low pass resonant filter
3 LFO : 2 with configurable waveform, 1 with CV frequency control
1 custom CV generator with 4 algorithms : Attack Release, dual LFO, Random, Step
1 audio effects processor with 4 effects : Distortion, Delay, Bitcrush, Waveshaper
1 ring modulator
1 CV controlled mixer for VCO1 and VCO2
2 octaves keyboard with portamento
1 digital matrix to connect signals to modulation faders
1 stereo line-IN with envelope follower and gate control
1 MIDI input : note / velocity / pitch bend / modulation wheel / control change
3 analogue CV IN and 1 GATE IN
1 light sensor"
