Keen to hear what your favorite ‘complex oscillators’ are.

I do love these things for internal routing and waveshaping options.

Used to have a DPO which I sometimes miss, have a CS-L which I love, but looking for other options, well, because!

The Brenso looks beautiful on paper but i still haven’t heard a great demo. Keen on the Mindphaser, Brenso, or maybe even the Endorphins.

What are you using?
What have you tried?
Why do you love complex oscs?!


i had the pitts double helix for a while. that thing was gritty asf.


I recently got my first analog complex osc, the verbos first gen with vactrols, and I hadn’t touched anything as organic since my late Roland system 100. It is so nice. I also have a NE locquelic iteritas which I recently upgraded to the percido version and a erica graphic vco. I’m yet to experience the thru zero fm buzz, I don’t really know what’s it is all about. Mindphaser seems pretty nice for that option.

yum - Mindphaser doesnt do TZ FM, but does do TZ phase mod.
I think the only analog complex osc that does TZFM is Brenso.

Mindphaser does sound awesome though! I have recently got one.
That Verbos CO (vactrol version) is something I’d love to have a hoon on though!

You are welcome to. Hopefully a modular meet up would give us those opportunities. By that time I might have received the verbos ATC also mk1 with vactrols to pair it with.


Love the ATC mk1. It will always be with me!!

I gave up hoping you would sell it to me and found one reasonably priced. Looking fwd to it

Yeah, meetup would be cool for this reason. I’ll let you know when I’ve confirmed the next date.

What we could do with complex osc would be a good topic
