polyclang

All sounds coming from the one module with no effects just a sequencer
CV and gate.

Nice! :yay: Need some more details though. This is the age of the digital osc for sure! :hail: Was this the osc that you hinted at in the past that might include a screen?

No this is a different design. No screen.
The idea here is 4 operator FM ala Yamaha DX series.
Each operator has its own on-board envelope and modulation inputs.
There are 36 knobs with no menus or shared controls.
It uses DX style algorithms for arranging the operators in different stack-up configurations. It also has a pseudo poly arrangement with one gate and one CV but 3 voices that rotate so there can be an overlap of release envelopes. Prevents clicky chopping off on mid length envelope release to give it a fuller sound. It's still in the experimental stages but just interested what the reaction to this type of sound would be?

That sounds really impressive! I can't say I currently have the space or ability to buy one, but I'd love to see it made!

Definitely interested...and i definitely like the no-screen philosophy! But 36 knobs? It would be at least 40 hp :ripbanana:

I have always wished for a knob per parameter FM synthesizer maybe not the right place to ask but does this one stand any chances to make it into the A series? Not to sound insulting but I may even consider Euro for something like this :hihi:

I've always loved the sounds of the Yamaha FM stuff, but absolutely hated programming them. I've been waiting for something like this in modular for a long time.

That said, 36 knobs usually means "huge and expensive." This will probably come down to price for me.

I'm in for this when I can afford it. I've been wanting this exact module. Sounds cool!

Sounds great!
love the idea of 36 knobs, but am wondering how extensive is the CV control?
AND
if it would have more than one audio output...
as in ability to route voices L/R?

Sounds great ... although I'm giving myself a reality check because I'm feeling enthusiastic about what's essentially a TX81Z (only with less polyphony, etc.). Don't get me wrong -- I liked the TX81Z.

I like your rotating voice scheme. I think that adds enormously to the smoothness of the sound. I would tend to agree with others that 36 knobs sounds like overkill. On the other hand, I'm looking at the Intellijel Dubmix; with its Expander included, it has 30 knobs. 14 of them are mini-posts. So maybe 36 would be manageable, as long as there are plenty of CV inputs too.

Got a lovely TX7 I've been meaning to CV control and an FMVDO to back it up. I can see this replacing 'em, but it all boils down to price and hp.

definitely piques my interest, curious about HP, potential cost range, and what mod inputs are available?

I'm curious how one would select the different algorithms (how the operators are stacked)?

Very nice. But price is always a main factor. Any rough idea. We won't hold you to it
