Update: Now with sound demo video.

Well, hands down that’s the best video for a module I think I’ve ever seen. The animation is fascinating but the soundtrack is superb. This is how you show off a new oscillator! Wow, how could you not want one?

Pizza is a complex digital oscillator with three forms of sound generation. It has additive synthesis with a unique take on FM and waveshaping, and then subtractive synthesis with pulse and Octave output. But then there’s an FM Index crossfader to go between operators and a Ratio Oscillator for flexible FM Timbres. There’s wave shaping, wave folding and Ring Modulation. I think it’s safe to say this is no Margherita, this is a full-on hand-stretched, camel cheese, quale, parma ham and spinach pizza with extra jalapenos.

Inside are three oscillators; a main oscillator that can be phase modulated and folded while the other two are modulation oscillators. One messes about with the FM while the other gives us an alarmingly shaped Octave output.

You can assign the CTRL knob to all sorts of things such as linear FM, exponential FM or either of the oscillators, octave, detune, ratio, shaping, folding, Ring Mod or the built-in bipolar VCA. This isn’t an oscillator it’s a playground of digital collisions and weirdness. It’s a bit nuts – enjoy!

And what does “pizza” have to do with anything? I’ve no idea.
