"In today's stream we are going to take a brief look at the Capt'n BIG-O, an all analog oscillator from Cre8audio.

Capt'n BIG-O is a meticulously crafted module designed for those with a deep appreciation for the raw beauty of analog waveforms. This module offers a pure analog signal path, eschewing chip-based oscillators to deliver a pristine and warm sonic experience.

In a collaborative effort with Pittsburgh Modular Synthesizers, we embarked on a mission to encapsulate the essence of massive analog sound within a voltage-controlled oscillator module. This endeavor was met with initial skepticism, but Pittsburgh Modular eventually recognized the value of our vision.

Key Features of Capt'n BIG-O:
- Pure Analog, Original Design: This module boasts a fully analog signal path, ensuring the authenticity and warmth of your sound.
-Diverse Waveforms: Capt'n BIG-O offers a selection of essential waveforms, including sine, triangle, saw, and square, allowing for versatile sound sculpting.
- Flexible Wave Folding: The wave folder/waveshaper is thoughtfully designed to default to sine but can be patched to any waveform or external source, granting you creative control.
- High-Intensity Drive Circuit: Experience a robust 75x overdriven VCA with a potent 5V output, providing dynamic sonic possibilities.
- Linear and Exponential Frequency Modulation (FM): Explore a range of modulation options with both linear and exponential FM capabilities.
- Hard Sync: Achieve precise synchronization of your waveforms for tight and controlled audio synthesis.
- Pulsewidth Modulation: Fine-tune your wave's pulsewidth to attain nuanced tonal variations.

Capt'n BIG-O is your gateway to the world of analog audio exploration. Immerse yourself in the pure, unadulterated world of analog waveforms and elevate your sound to new heights. It's analog synthesis, redefined.
