Ouroboros Subharmonic Drone Synthesizer

Published on Feb 12, 2020 Ouroboros Electronics

Don't miss the third video in the playlist above: Ouroboros System I + TR-606 • Techno

"The Ouroboros Subharmonic Drone Instrument takes a fundamental frequency and produces 5 different tones which are each an octave below the one before it. The large knob sets the fundamental frequency, and then the row of six knobs adjusts the volume of the fundamental pitch and it’s five subharmonics. Below max volumes the square waves will sound softer and mix together smoothly, and at full volume they will become grittier. There is also has a 1-pole low pass filter and a master volume control. It has a 3.5mm mono jack output, and is powered by a 9v battery. It is housed in handmade cherry enclosures with a linseed oil finish and a stainless steel bottom.
The enclosure is very slim (slightly less than an inch thick) yet extremely sturdy due to rounded edges, a natural protective finish and steel backing.
This synth is a one-off and is now available for $200USD plus $8 shipping within the US or $28 shipped internationally. To order - contact

Reverb added via Eventide Space in the first part of this demo. No effects or processing were used in the second segment."

Side note: there are other pieces of kit named Ouroboros.
