The Electronic Music Works WCS-1 Wave Composition Analog Synthesizer is a MIDI synthesizer module based around a digital oscillator, followed by all discrete analog circuits. According to EMM, the WCS-1 is designed to create ‘unusual and very fat sounds’.
The digital oscillator can produce a variety of waves, using individual wave shapes or combining multiple wave shapes to create complex wave shapes.
The WCS-1 is designed to be used with a MIDI controller, sequencer or other device that provides MIDI out and has a standard 1/4″ mono jack output to connect to mixer or audio interface.
Here’s a demo video of the WCS-1 in action:
In the demo, the EMW WCS-1 synthesizer module is played using a microKorg and a reverb from a Behringer mixing console.
The WCS-1 is priced at US $269. See the EMM site for details.
