NAMM 2020: 4MS Ensemble Oscillator Sounds & Interview

Published on Jan 18, 2020 Perfect Circuit

"4MS's new module is sixteen oscillators in one, enabling everything from additive synthesis to complex FM, chords, and more.

Dan Green from 4MS walked us through the concept behind their newest module, the Ensemble Oscillator. Designed in collaboration with Matthias Puech, Ensemble Oscillator is a polyphonic oscillator with internal provisions for FM, phase distortion, additive synthesis, and wave folding. Based around user-definable scales, it breaks away from "swarm" oscillator concepts in favor of exploration of quantized harmonic intervals, be they conventional or unconventional.

The sheer power of sixteen simultaneous oscillators cannot be overstated—but when combined with all of the internal options for cross modulation, wave shaping, and phase distortion, the Ensemble Oscillator becomes a source of immense sonic potential: from sparkling arpeggios to dense drones, chaotic noise, and beyond.
