MOK announce that the Waverazor Dual Oscillator module is nearing completion and will be shipping in June 2019. This complex and innovative oscillator module’s patented waveslicing synthesis presents a novel approach to sound generation that splices waveforms into twisted and aggressive new timbres.

For the first time, Eurorack modular synthesists will be able to explore MultiSync and Mutant AM, two new synthesis techniques made possible by the Waverazor oscillator design. In addition to the classic hard sync sound, MultiSync allows for multiple hard sync points within a single cycle, or out beyond a single cycle, while Mutant AM provides a tapestry of amplitude modulation sequencing, created by the waveforms selected for each “razor” slice.

“Waverazor provides 20 inputs for CV modulation and two additional inputs for high resolution voltperoctave tracking, including FM,” said Taiho Yamada, co-founder at MOK. “Those inputs can then split off into 80 different simultaneous parameter destinations. It’s amazing to hear how organic, lively, and frankly, how much mayhem is possible with this dual oscillator module in a mature modular system.”

Each of the two oscillators in the Waverazor Dual Oscillator module can contain up to 8 wave slices, creating a multi-segment “Frankenstein” waveform that produces extended harmonic content. Each individual slice has independent control over wave pitch, volume, phase and DC offset, allowing a single oscillator to contain a multitude of timbral colors. Even the “razor” itself can be adjusted, with parameters for its own slice frequency, step size multiplier and duty cycle. Moreover, the Waverazor Dual Oscillator module provides a central oscilloscope that enables precise waveform creation. Four endless knobs make it possible to morph multiple parameters at once, while the touch screen enables X/Y performance controllers that allow you to manipulate your waveform with the swipe of a finger.

MOK is an innovative music technology company focusing on new forms of audio synthesis and  effects. It was founded by Rob Rampley, Taiho Yamada and Chris Compton, designers and developers whose resumés include such acclaimed synthesizers as the Quadrasynth, QS8, Andromeda, Ion, Micron, Fusion, Venom, BioTek and Waverazor.

MOK’s hardware engineering platform and its worldwide distribution are provided through a special partnership with 1010music. MOK software is distributed by Tracktion Corporation. The Waverazor Dual Oscillator module is available for live demonstration at Superbooth #E257, FEZBerlin, Germany. Video demo online here .
