Twin Waves MK2

Klavis Twin Waves MK2, the newest version of the great Twin Waves Dual Digital oscillators and retains all features while adding a few more! Comparing the two, you'll notice they are:
  • Same width (8hp)
  • Same price
  • All TW v1 capabilities and features retained
  • Three dedicated modulation gain pots added
  • Semi-modular cross-section patching added
  • Whereas the original Twin Waves required +/-5V signals to benefit from full scale modulation, the new version requires less and has gain knobs for all 3 modulation inputs.
  • These gain knobs are even more beneficial given that a normalling of the outputs to the other section's modulation input(s) allows creative results without requiring extra patching.
  • This offers an easy and creative access to "complex oscillator" fun and cross modulation craziness.
  • Using the outputs does not break their normalling; this avoids using a "multiple" when the output signal should go both inside and outside the module.
  • The dedicated Square1 output of the first oscillator is normalled to the global sync/clock input. This allows synchronizing the second oscillator both for audio and LFO/random purposes.


VCO mode:

    • V/Oct tracking over 10 octaves
    • Through zero and linear FM
    • Sub-octave output
    • Hard & soft synchronization
    • VCA control and CV algorithms selection
    • Quantizer with various scales
    • 20 algorithm-based synthesis types among:
      • Wave shaping
      • Phase modulation
      • Phase positioning of multiple waves
      • Up to 5 stacked oscillators in tunable unison
      • Self-sync with phantom oscillator
      • Additive synthesis (7 waves)
      • Variable bit reduction (bit-crushing)
      • Ring modulator with its own 2nd oscillator
      • Noise with LPF, BPF, or resonant filter

Features in LFO mode:

    • Simultaneous signal and trigger outputs
    • External wave synchronization
    • Clock controlled rate with voltage controlled multiplier and divider
    • CV and knob control of output level
    • Algorithm based wave engine with a selection of:

NOTE: These units are from the second batch and beyond - the first batch was recalled due to a minor issue, and these units are fresh and do not have that issue.
