SKU: SPUTOSC1 Categories: , Brand:


The SPUTNIK OSCILLATOR is a voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) with a dynamic linear frequency modulation (FM) input and a unique variable
waveform section. Wave shape outputs include sine, triangle, sub-octave pulse (2 octaves below the primary frequency), and variable waveshape.
The waveshape out is a crossfader between a sine wave and either square or ramp wave via control voltage (0V to +5V) or a front panel knob. Both the waveshape section’s square and ramp have a distinctive harmonic character different from most VCOs.

The Oscillator’s FM section has an input for linear FM. The FM section’s range and control knob allows a spectrum of responses from subtle pitch modulation to complete chaos.
