Bastl adds extra toppings to Pizza wave-shaping, FM oscillator – CDM Create Digital Music

bastl instruments pizza 1.1 is here, updating the wave-shaping and fm eurorack oscillator module. think + modulation, a new internal envelope mode, internal filtering, and even the ability to turn it into a full 3-operator fm voice.

pizza was already an intriguing, tasty oscillator in a packed space. b'tas eurorack moves away from unitaskers to deeper functionality, this pizza just turned into, uh, deep dish and that’s all the pizza metaphors for tody.

wha’’s new inna 1.1 update:

  • an integrated envelope as a new control destination
  • a 2nd indie fm index
  • a coarse pitch mode
  • ratio oscillator output can now be sent via the pulse output
  • lo-pass filter for fm modulators to reduce crackle when you’re cranking shape to the extremes

…+ various improvements to tuning calibration, knob behavior, and code optimization (+ some filtering nother fixes in point releases they’ve done since launch).

with that parallel fm index, you can really make this into a complete 3-operator fm voice. na onboard envelope lets you dial in vca settings, normalized to the fm index.

bastl already were onto something here – a clever 3-oscillator design, easy access to fm modulation, and a creative layout design that gives this some personality. so it’s gr8 to see the added maturity inna design.

if you’re ready for + detail, you can read the updated manual:

oscillator sink ‘ve also created an in-depth video that is both manual and set of exs – a bit like a mini-course in synthesis round this oscillator.

i ‘ve no clever puns here, but i am hungry.
