Ritual Electronics Anima dual VCO - waves sound overview with Altar Filter

Dziam Bass

"Hello All.
today I have a small waves overview of Anima dual VCO from Ritual Electronics .

I reviewed some waves and pitch in the video so that you could see the power of this oscillator, in the second part I added a small sequence and also the Altar filter from Ritual .🔥🔥👌

Anima is Dual voltage controlled segments generator. AD / ASR envelope, LFO, Digital Oscillator and more.
Anima draws its roots in the “west coast” analog function generators and updates them in the digital realm. This take allows for extremely precise 1V / Oct tracking (10+ octaves) when in cycling mode, and for the control of the rising and falling segments (aka attack and decay) curves without affecting timing + a few more tricks.

The 1V / Oct input turns Anima into a very capable digital dual oscillator - when in cycle mode - with two types of frequency modulation and voltage controlled waveform crossfading. Cross patching is highly recommended for harsh mayhem synthesis!

The Curve parameter goes well beyond the usual Lin / Log control. It morphs smoothly between several curvatures (including the classic log, lin and exp) without affecting the rising and falling times.

For maximum versatility each channel of Anima has an output polarity switch, making it 0 to + 8V in unipolar mode or -5 to 5V in bipolar mode, suitable for audio or bipolar CV generation.

Altar is a voltage controlled 3-pole, 18dB / octave state variable filter.

Altar The configuration of the filter can be smoothly crossfaded from BP to LP to HP. This unusual filter type arrangement brings out very nice harmonics and nuances. It is really suited to CV control. The CV input has an attenuverter. Resonance is under voltage control with attenuverter as well allowing for great timbre modulations. It is particularly useful to recreate accent patterns à la 303. There is a gain at Altar input to beef up your signal which then distort the filter core. The filter tracks 1V / oct for 4-5 octaves and can turn into a very sweet sine oscillator

Thanks for watching and have a nice day!

"Anima is a dual voltage-controlled segments generator. It can be an AD or an ASR enveloppe, an LFO, a Digital Oscillator and even more. Breath life into your modular patches with continuously evolving sonic modulations."
