Richter Oscillator II
The Malekko Richter series of modules offer the same great sound, ergonomics, musicality, and quality that made the Wiard 300 series legendary, at a fraction of the cost and size in Eurorack modular format.
The Malekko/Richter Oscillator II is a great-sounding, solid analog Oscillator/LFO with some serious tricks up its sleeve.
Fine and Coarse frequency controls are provided. Volt per octave and exponential (with attenuator) CV frequency inputs are provided. An output for each waveform is provided (Sine/Triangle/Square/Saw). A second series of outputs are provided for phase-modulated versions of the Triangle, Square, and Saw waveforms. The phase of the 2nd series of waveforms is determined by the Phase control, along with the Phase CV input (with attenuator). Many great modulation effects can be produced by using the various outputs of this Oscillator in a patch. Push the LFO control switch to enter low range, and your Oscillator becomes a phase-modulated LFO! Set the 2nd series of outputs to a 90 degree offset and use external inverters to achieve full quadrature output.
One of our favorite patches with this module is modulating another oscillator’s frequency and sending the modulated oscillator’s output back to the Oscillator’s Phase Mod input. Phase-Mod-Synced FM!
The Sine wave provided by the Malekko Richter Oscillator II is one of the purest of any analog Oscillator, and the TRI2 out is as pure as the driven snow!
The Oscillator is 14hp, 35mm deep, and consumes around 90mA power.
