Well shit... Livewire is making an oscillator! It was shown off @ NAMM and somehow I missed it when I browsed past the Livewire rack. With a name like "Audio Frequency Generator" I'm quite embarrassed that I missed it. In fact, I'm pretty sure I actually saw it and didn't grok what it was then.
Anyway, it kinda throws a wrench in my gears of modular purchase. Based on what I have seen in this sonicstate coverage of the AH booth (check the Livewire video) the Livewire OSC looks bad ass! It also looks big. Based on what I can tell from the video, it's the same size as a Dual Cyclotron...a whopping 28HP.
I may just end up with a 1 OSC modular...I have decided the Dalek and Vulcan Modulators, so I'll have audio rate modulation available, but I don't know at this point if I really *need* them. Based on what the Livewire OSC is apparently capable of, I may not need it.
What's cool is the modular may now consist mostly of Livewire parts...something I wanted from the beginning because the look so cool!
Livewire is also releasing two "expander" modules to accompany the OSC. One of which is an 8 input CV controlled bi-polar audio mixer, designed primarily to mix the 8 possible waveform outputs on the Livewire OSC. Yes that's right, 8 POSSIBLE WAVEFORM OUTPUTS!
