Autodafe has also recently released OSCar for Kontakt, a recreation of the famous OSC (Oxford Synthesizer Company) OSCar for Kontakt, based on samples from an actual OSCar.

Autodafe OSCar for Kontakt

The original OSCar comes from Autodafe’s collection of analogue synths. 35 Soundsets have been sampled from the original presets in the OSCar memory. There are 91 total patches in the Kontakt Instrument.

The aim is not to 100% replicate the OSCar but to capture its sounds, its controls and its characteristics adding unique features that are only possible in the digital world.

Autodafe OSCar features an advanced Arpeggiator, which was quite simple on the original OSCar
Autodafe OSCar also features a Chord Mode, Glide, Mono Mode and Unison section. The original OSCar had the option to play “Duo” (duophonic) and had glide controls, with different types and times.

The ugly (but lovely), knob-stuffed and cluttered interface of the original OSCar has also been reproduced.

OSCar for Kontakt (full version) is available for 9.99 EUR.
