|THE OSCar Synthesizer from OSC
Oxford Synthesiser Company OSCar (1983)
another fine synth (beside the WASP by EDP (electronic dream planet)
from Chris Huggett (see above about his other project EDP and his teaming up with EMS-David Cockerell)
this is the first and last synth by OSC 1982. 2 ENVS (adsr) and 1 LFO. also nice PW control. but very cryptic interface and look.. 2 filters, routable to model a 24dB/oct filter, both filters are multimode: lpf,hpf,bpfthe oscs are special digital ones thaat can hold up to 24 waveforms where 5 can be edited in a kind off additive way.. there is a sequencer in it ,too (24 sequences storable) later software versions made those editable, but see them as (almost) preset ones.
“duophonic” via the sequencer, so this is what it has in common with the arp odyssey and the roland sh7
btw: there is a software out emulating the OSCar from g media, but I don’t own it.. only seen the demo.
huggett later worked for akai (the s1000), strange, but ..
the Advanced Sound Generator ASG was planned but imho it was never made, sort of rack version of an advanced OScar.. about 1000 Oscars have been made..
OSCar synthesizer ehm, synthesiser
click these for details:
1000-2000 were made of these – “Father” Chris Huggett later worked for akai (strange,huh?)..
