Voice of the Mountain/ STG Oscillator drone


"A little more detail about the modulation feature of the new STG Soundlabs Oscillator. Actually two of them in 5U large format.
This a longer drone so you can hear the slow and subtle pitch modulation. They are capable of very stable tuning as wee as outrageously wide modulation. All this right on the front panel with a unique type of drift algorithm.
The drone is controlled by a pair of Q960 sequencers and a pair of STG Voltage sequencers for octave and semitone transpose. The video demo is in two parts. The first part is a display of the modulation amount and drift speed, as well as the semitone and octave switching. They are also capable of LFO functions and a smooth sweeping 'WIDE' setting.
The second portion is a long (10 minute) ambient chill drone with various delays and reverbs. The slowly drifting pitch modulation reminded me of distant horns so I had to visualize some mountain voices. I also added a drifty, noisy filtered background for atmosphere."
