Odessa from Xaoc Devices is a flagship digital oscillator module. It uses the principle of additive synthesis controlled by a set of carefully tailored macro parameters to harness thousands of sinusoidal partials that altogether form the resulting sound. The series of harmonics can be squeezed or spread apart, tilted, and pruned by a comb-like frequency response, resulting in a variety of unearthly sounds. Furthermore the VCO provides Through-zero linear FM and detuneable clusters of up to five voices. An amazing oscillator with lots of sonic possibilities!
Odessa from Xaoc Devices is an additive oscillator which means the output signal is synthesized by adding a multitude (up to 2560) of sinusoidal components (harmonic partials). Thanks to a straightforward user interface it is easy to control the sound.
All partials are frequency related to the common fundamental controlled by a V/oct input.
By manipulating the parameters of the harmonic partials it is possible to obtain a very broad range of unearthly sounds, but also the classic saw, square and pure sine. Odessa offers a set of controls that allow to shape the spectrum by deciding on how many partials are produced, and how they are distributed in frequency and amplitude, which is visualised by a spectrum analyzer with 12 multi-color LEDs. The series of harmonics can be squeezed or spread apart, tilted, and pruned by a comb-like frequency response, resulting in a huge variety of spectra. Sounds similar to flanging or phasing can be obtained by animating the comb response.
Additionally, the module offers exponential and linear through-zero frequency modulation.
Furthermore, up to five detuned voices can be spread apart for a fat and dense cluster, or a powerful chord.
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.
