Max for Cats has introduced OSCiLLOT – a complete modular system for Ableton Live.
OSCiLLOT offers more than 100 modules – including oscillators, processors, filters, mixers, modulators, amplifiers, shapers, sequencers, utilities and more. These comprise the basic building blocks of many electronic instruments and effects.
Here’s a video introduction to OSCiLLOT:
With OSCiLLOT, there is practically no limit to the type of instrument, sound or effect device you can make, once you start connecting modules. You can patch together your own FM, additive, and subtractive synthesizers, resonators, filters, envelopes, convolution reverbs, mixers, frequency shifters, sequencers, drum machines, logic modules, compressors, and waveshapers.
While hardware-based modular systems are usually monophonic, OSCiLLOT features up to six voices of polyphony.
OSCiLLOT is Expandable
Since OSCiLLOT is a Max for Live device, Max/MSP enthusiasts can make and modify their own modules – an SDK is available.
And if you already own a modular system or other CV/gate-enabled instruments, OSCiLLOT can interact with your hardware – provided you have a DC coupled audio interface.
Here is a collection of official audio demos of Max For Cats’ OSCiLLOT:
OSCiLLOT is available now via Ableton for US $99.
