RYK vector wave
Supply: RYK Modular
RYK teased this new module on Instagram for some time, however after watching Loopop Misha’s video, we now know it is a Vector Wave and it appears wonderful.
It is this massive pixel display that actually attracts your consideration to the Vector Wave. It has been featured in lots of Instagram posts displaying off waveforms, measurements and different retro graphical options. Whereas the show is mesmerizing, it is what’s behind the entrance that will get actually fascinating.
Vector Wave combines 16 FM mills and thumb-controlled vector synthesis. The 16 oscillators are divided into 4 banks and will be set to crash into one another for complicated FM tones or work collectively for additive synthesis. The vector half is managed with a cool little joystick that means that you can change between 4 oscillator banks. I am assuming that every financial institution is in a nook of XY area and you progress between them with the joystick.
The module additionally comprises “Warp Warping”, though this can be a typo on the web site and may in all probability learn “Wave Warping”. It could actually repeatedly change the waveform between sine, triangular, sawtooth and pulse waveforms. Wave Folding can also be accessible for some excessive sonic bending.
Modulation is supplied by two envelopes and two LFOs that may be utilized to every voice in polyphonic mode. There may be an inner matrix of modulation slots for straightforward routing of inner and exterior modulation sources. You possibly can document joystick actions after which set off them externally – sounds thrilling!
The Vector Wave is MIDI managed, which additionally opens up the oscillators for polyphonic voices and multi-timbral use. An non-obligatory growth module will add 3 extra V/Oct and Gate inputs to provide you CV managed polyphony.
In wild nature
It appears like a really thrilling module. The one audio demos now we have in the intervening time are a couple of Instas and a Loopop video on Eventide Misha. I’ve a sense that RYK was stunned by his function within the video and it is a bit odd that Loopop does not point out it.
The Vector Wave is priced at £395 and must be accessible very quickly.
