RYK Vector Wave | 4 Operator mono/polyphonic vector synth with 16 VCO's, 8 Env/LFO's and a Joystick.

"I started working on this video three days ago, right after I got the RYK.
Since I have committed to making a video every day in January, I had to work ahead a bit and study. It's hard enough to make a video under pressure, but working on a module you don't know is even harder. RYK's Vector Wav is so deep it makes it virtually impossible to make something decent. But I learned a lot while/after making this video and I think it's an enjoyable watch.

The RYK is an amazing machine and it can produce the biggest sound I've ever heard coming from a single eurorack module. In short, it's a 4 operator FM voice, but it goes much deeper. A voice is a wavebank of four oscillators, so there are 16 voices to play with. Each wavebank has two envelopes, two LFO's and six modulation targets. You can use it in unison and polyphonic with midi. With the expander you can drive three more gates and melodies in 'multi timbral' mode. There's just one word for the RYK and that is WOW.
