Nozoid OCS-2: small subtractive synthesizer

OCS-2 is a digital, semi-modular, analog-style synthesizer. Small, but very powerful and flexible, it provides incredible sound quality. Dedicated to knob addicts, the synthesizer is full of features that define its own unique sound. This instrument was designed by Henry Cyrille.

The OCS-2 has a multimode VCF (including that Moog-style 24dB/oct filter), 2 VCOs (15 waveforms each!) and a VCA. The impressive array of modulation options (3 LFOs, ADSR, CV GEN, etc.) is routable via its own modulation matrix / switchboard.
