9216 Sawtooths

When 12 Oscillators isn't enough... here's 9204...

The story

Christian gave us 12 Oscillators from his Colossus. So I wondered what a few thousand would sound like…

So here are 9,216 Sawtooth oscillators arranged in neat ‘virtual mic’ groups of 1,024, starting at ‘Normal’, and getting more and more detuned as you go to the right, plus a final ‘Distant’ virtual mic to take the count from 8,192 to the full 9,216. That’s a lot of oscillators!

That’s a mere nine thousand, two hundred and sixteen oscillators.

You should start by turning all the virtual mics down except for the ‘Normal’ one, which should be set at about half volume. As you add in more mics, you may need to reduce the levels to avoid overloading…

Please, whatever you do, do not put all the mics above half way and then play a C0 loudly with the Attack set to 0! You have been warned.

  • Warm, versatile synth to play with!

    I think this is very interesting synth!! It has lots of parameters so you can tweak the sound like wobble/insane...etc as well. It does give an interesting spice to the project.

  • Extremely versatile...

    This synthesizer is extremely versatile and great for building strong, underlying chords that many compositions need. The tone control is very useful and can take the sound from a soft and smooth tone to a large and powerful driving one. I also particularly like the "impact" that the synthesizer has at the beginning of each note which is great for big drops and hits. This paired with your Straight Maths pad would be perfect together for a synth-based composition. Great job!
