Novaflash updates Oxytocin (beta)
It’s been a while since I posted about this synth, but it seems this puppy gets updated at least a dozen times a month so it isn’t totally weird it doesn’t really look the way it did almost half a year ago.
There have been too many updates to list so I’ll just sum up the main features again.
- Sound generator (max 9 poly) featuring 2 dual VCOs (A+B), EG, sharpness, waveform shaper, 2 x LFO (each w/ EG), 1 adj. noise generator (w/ EG), 1 ring modulator, HP, BP, LP res. filters (3 flavors – 12 to 36db), distortion (21 modes) + soft limiter
- Main Amp and Misc includes a free EG (HADSR, positive or negative, velocity, 3 destinations), arp and Unison = max 3 voices
mono: granulizer (modulable), LoFi, Formant filter and 2 x VCF (ser/par)
stereo: delay (modulable, independant channel setup, gated mode), chorus, reverb (gated mode), spacializer (stereo expander)
- LFO: 4 x modulator each w/ EG, FX dedicated
- Step Sequencer, 2x 128
- MIDI Learn
Last time I tried this synth I liked it but didn’t find many useful presets included and it’s not the easiest synth to program so I kind of forgot about it. This time around the default 128 presets include many beautiful bread and butter type sounds, so if you didn’t like Oxytocin much before maybe give it another shot.
