We saw the Boubou drum voice a couple of years ago but now Quanalog has the Butterfly complex oscillator and a Binari sequencer.
There’s no information online as yet but from what we can gather from reports at Superbooth, Butterfly is a complex oscillator that has no primary or secondary VCO. Instead is has a dual oscillator architecture where each VCO has the same and complete functionality. They both have wave folding which you can cross modulate into the other in either direction. The wave folder can also act as a pseudo-VCA for creating a synth voice without any other modules.
Both sides have individual outputs for four waveforms but there’s also a modulated mix output that’s full of complex stuff being cooked up between them. The waveform present in the mix can be selected and voltage-controlled which lets you cycle your way through all the waves shapes like a waveform sequencer.
Butterfly is a field of knobs and patch points and appears to have enormous scope for sound design and modulation. Quanalog says it will probably be available towards the end of the year.
Very little information on this so far but Nguyen Do Minh Quan of Quanalog was using it to drive the Boubou drum voice. It has 6 channels and a touch muting interface of some kind. It’s pattern-based where the patterns are generated via an Algorithm knob.
Binari is the next thing he’ll start on after the Butterfly. So, good things to come.
Quanalog is on booth H140.
