Sputnik Variable Waveform Generator

"The Sputnik Variable Waveform Generator is a Buchla inspired discrete triangle core oscillator. One major change is the inclusion of a hard sync vs. the typical triangle core soft sync. The module features 5 dedicated audio outputs (sub, pulse, sine, saw and triangle) and various animation controls such as built-in waveshaper, saw animator and drive circuits with attenuation amount inputs. It also has a vco/lfo switch, both linear and exponential FM inputs with attenuators and very good tracking."

For those that may not know, Sputnik is Roman Filippov's (of Black Corporation) other brand.

"Here's the new Variable Waveform Generator from Sputnik Modular. It's a discrete Buchla style triangle core oscillator with individual waveshaping animations, sub oscillator, linear and exponential FM, hard sync and LFO mode.

In this video we take a look at 19 patches to break out of the basics with your oscillators, looking at more advanced patches that demonstrate a variety of synthesis/oscillator functions and look at adding dynamic animations to your sounds right at the core of the patch. While this video focuses on the Variable Waveform Generator specifically you can apply these patches to other oscillators and wave shapers, so give them a go and feel free to let us know in the comments what's working for you.

Patreon supporters will have access to totally exclusive patch not featured in this video and an extended patch breakdown from one of the patches here (coming soon). Gain access to an awesome community and get access to exclusives here // https://bit.ly/DK-patreon
