Back at Winter NAMM 2019, MOK and 1010music revealed their brainchild: the Waverazor Dual Oscillator module. The device is now available, offering crunching leads, glitched-out basses, cinematic droning and more.
The above sounds are a product of MOK’s patented wave-slicing synthesis, which has come to Eurorack for the first time. Wave-slicing is a new approach to sound generation that entails the splicing of waveforms into “twisted and aggressive new timbres”, says the brand.
At the module’s core are two oscillators, each containing up to eight wave slices. You can shape each slice with dedicated controls, including wave pitch, volume, phase and DC offset. With a string of distinct slices, you’ll be able to create a “Frankenstein-like multi-segment waveform”, according to 1010music.
For deeper exploration of wave-slicing synthesis, you can tap on two interesting Waverazor modes: Multi-Sync and Mutant AM. The former caters for numerous hard-sync points within or beyond a single cycle, while the latter boasts amplitude modulation sequencing shaped by each slice’s selected waveforms.
Another notable feature is a touch screen for X/Y sound-manipulation and visualisation of selected waveforms. Rounding out Waverazor’s features are an audio input – for “slicing up” external sound sources – and 20 modulation CV inputs.
