Jena is part of the Leibnitz subsystem made by Xaoc. - The module manipulates audio or CV signals using a numeric 8-bit system. - As a result, Jena can be used, for instance, as a waveshaper with LoFi sound or as a generator of eight-voice trigger sequences. Walsh synthesis is possible as well.
Being limited to 8 bits both in phase and signal value, Jena will not deliver crystal clear timbres you may know from many wavetable oscillators. Instead, it offers buzzy, jittery and gritty sounds as well as jerky and skippy rhytms, just like vintage computers, that were sometimes unreliable and unpredictable.
Jena can be used for:
- Digital waveshaper and function mapper
- Through–zero phase modulation
- Walsh function generator
- Drum pattern generator
- Voltage controlled bank and shape scanning
XAOC (as written in Cyrillic alphabet, pronounced "chaos") is an innovative Polish company that started offering a user interface for the Doepfer DIY synth named Karl Marx Stadt (nowadays, Chemnitz) and later designed the clever circular sequencer Moskwa. Besides the peculiarity of naming their modules after ex-Soviet cities, XAOC Devices have established themselves solidly in the eurorack scene offering appealing designs, like their recent Odessa oscillator, as mighty as the Battleship Potemkin.
