What is Ovum? (And how might one use it?)

video upload by Oscillator Sink

"Ovum, from Crows Electromusic is an analog oscillator bank containing 5 freely tuneable oscillators. It is a simple instrument suited to drones and ambient, but becomes most interesting (in my opinion) when paired with other instruments. So join me on this calm voyage of discovery as we get to know Ovum and how you might pair it with other instruments.

Check out the Ovum here:

A quick introduction to OVUM, a new synthesizer from Crows Electromusic

"March 28, 2023 - Crows Electromusic, a new synth company from Vancouver, Canada, is thrilled to introduce OVUM, a standalone all-analog tool for exploratory sound synthesis. With individual controls for each function, OVUM gives direct control of five independent triangle-core oscillators. The instrument’s unique un-quantized interface is perfect for exploring pure tones, drones, and microtonal sound textures.


• 100% analog circuitry
• Five voices
• Triangle and square wave triangle-core oscillators
• One-control-per-function interface
• Unique control system
• Fully standalone, just add headphones
• Wood and aluminium enclosure
• USB powered
• Made in Canada

During development of OVUM we’ve had the pleasure of handing the instrument to people who’ve never touched a synth in their life - and then watch their eyes light up as they discover how easy it is to make strange and beautiful sounds when they’re unconstrained by conventional time signatures and musical scales. We think people of all ages, musical abilities, and experience levels are going to love this instrument.

OVUM is available now for $129 USD.

Crows Electromusic is a new synth company based in Vancouver, Canada. Started by Cory Alder in 2022. Crows’ goal is to develop new hardware instruments that challenge the established ways we interact with sound and music creation. Our first product, OVUM, is available for purchase now, and orders will ship starting April 15th.

For more information, please visit OVUM's website at or follow us on social media (Instagram, TikTok) at @crowselectromusic."
