At Modular Day Barcelona, Befaco released Pony VCO, a new compact analog thru-zero oscillator with wavefolding in 4HP and 1U
Today Modular Day takes place in Barcelona, a lovely Synthesizer come together event of manufacturers and musicians organized by the Befaco. Here you have the opportunity to get to know developers, try out new modules, and hear new modular music.
Of course, there is also the opportunity to present new products. Befaco took advantage of this and presented a new compact oscillator.
Befaco Pony VCO
Pony VCO is a new compact fully analog thru-zero oscillator in only 4HP. It comes with a range selector, octave, and waveform selector. You select from four different waveforms, including sine, triangle, ramp, and square.
Then, it has a built-in wavefolder with which you can add harmonic content to the waveforms. Adjustable with a red slider on the right side. There is also pulse width modulation (PWM), thru-zero FM, and hard sync. Befaco promises great stability and tuning capabilities thanks to its core based on Sound Semiconductors IC.
Due to the compact design, there are no attenuators for the functions (TZ-FM, timbre…). It’s a pity, but you can use another module to attenuate the signal.
Befaco’s new oscillator can be used as a super versatile sound generator or as a funky experimental LFO. It also has a handy built-in VCA with a dedicated output.
An exciting analog oscillator that offers a lot in only 4HP and nice to see that Befaco is now also making 1U modules.
Befaco Pony VCO is available now for 239€ in 3U (4HP) and 1U. A DIY version is also available.
