MOK Wavewazor Eurorack Module


Published on Aug 20, 2019 CatSynth TV

"We explore the new Waverazor Eurorack Module from MOK. The module features the same patented waveslicing oscillators found in the Waverazor software plugin, complete with a multitude of controls for manipulating the waveslices via the touch screen, knobs, or CV inputs.

We discuss the concepts of waveslicing synthesis, explore the interface, check out some presets, create our own sliced waveform, and go wild with the CV inputs, culminating in a performance with CV sequencers and external drum machines.

This complex and innovative oscillator module’s patented wave-slicing
synthesis presents a novel approach to sound generation that splices waveforms into twisted
and aggressive new timbres.
For the first time, Eurorack modular synthesists will be able to explore Multi -Sync and Mutant
AM, two new synthesis techniques made possible by the Waverazor oscillator’s unique design.
In addition to the classic hard sync sound, Multi- Sync allows for multiple hard sync points within
a single cycle, or out beyond a single cycle, while Mutant AM provides a tapestry of amplitude
modulation sequencing, created by the waveforms selected for each “razor” slice.
“Waverazor provides 20 inputs for CV modulation and two additional inputs for high resolution
volt- per-octave tracking, including FM,” said Taiho Yamada, Co-Founder at MOK. “Those inputs
can then split off into 80 different simultaneous parameter destinations. It’s amazing to hear how
organic, lively, and frankly, how much mayhem is possible with this dual oscillator module in a
mature modular system.”
Each of the two oscillators in the Waverazor Dual Oscillator module can contain up to 8 wave
slices, creating a multi-segment “Frankenstein” waveform that produces extended harmonic
content. Each individual slice has independent control over wave pitch, volume, phase and DC
offset, allowing a single oscillator to contain a variety of dynamic timbral colors. Even the “razor”
itself can be adjusted, with parameters for its own slicing frequency, step size multiplier and duty
cycle.
Moreover, the Waverazor Dual Oscillator module provides a central oscilloscope that enables
precise waveform creation. Four endless knobs make it possible to morph multiple parameters
at once, while the touch screen enables X/Y performance controllers that allow you to
manipulate your waveform with the swipe of a finger.
MOK is an innovative music technology company focusing on discovering new forms of audio
synthesis and effects. It was founded by Rob Rampley, Taiho Yamada and Chris Compton,
designers and developers whose resum├ęs include such acclaimed synthesizers as the
Quadrasynth, QS8, Andromeda, Ion, Micron, Fusion, Venom, BioTek and Waverazor.
The Waverazor Dual Oscillator hardware platform and its worldwide distribution are provided
through a special partnership with 1010music. MOK’s Waverazor software synthesizer is
distributed by Tracktion Corporation.
A Video demo for the Waverazor Dual Oscillator module is available online here .
