Boxed Ear has announced the release of OSCar, a virtual synthesizer library for Kontakt 4 and 5 made
entirely with the OSC OSCar synthesizer.
Released in 1983 by the Oxford Synthesizer Company, the OSCar was a unique combination of analog and digital. The oscillators are a digital design with the capability of being able to build waveforms using additive synthesis. These feed into an analogue multi-mode filter design which was inspired by the Minimoog trick of looping the synths output back into the filter’s input to overdrive the filter circuits, resulting in a characteristically crunchy sound.
Included in the pack are 119 Kontakt instruments which cover a wide range of synth sounds, both monophonic and polyphonic: tough basses, gorgeous evolving pads, complex leads and a host of other synth sounds all stamped with the OSCar’s unique sound.
- 1.1Gb soundset.
- Over 2,300 samples at 24-bit, 44.1 kHz quality.
- 119 Kontakt instruments (Raw mono, Raw poly, Processed mono, Processed poly, Waveforms).
OSCar for Kontakt costs $49 USD/€39 EUR/£30 GBP inc. VAT. Requires Kontakt 4 or 5 full version. OSCar does NOT work with the free Kontakt Player.
