"Winterbloom Castor & Pollux

Twins that move in and out of phase, unique but of the same kind, bound together in the infinite universe.

Castor & Pollux is a Roland Juno-inspired oscillator. It contains two digitally-controlled analog oscillators implemented using a faithfully modernized version of the original Juno 106 design. Like its inspiration, it can give you that wonderful 80s sound with independent and mixed ramp, pulse, and sub outputs. But the twins do not stop there- the second oscillator can be used to layer in thick detuned sounds, harmonically complex hard synced waveforms, or as a fully independent second oscillator.

The cherry on top is the digitally-controlled chorusing that applies subtle pitch shifting to the second oscillator. This gives a sound that echos back to the Juno chorus circuit but with a unique twist.

Manufactured in the United States.

Pre-orders placed after February 2021 are expected to start shipping in May, 2021.
