Braids, by French Eurorack pioneers Mutable Instruments, is not an oscillator. It sort of looks like one, with fine and coarse pitch/frequency controls, a v/oct input, and voltage-controllable tone/timbre controls. It even sort of sounds like one, in as far as it outputs audio.
Mutable Instruments call it a macro oscillator, but even that is an understatement. It’s a hugely sophisticated digital synthesis engine, able to produce and manipulate complex sounds – classic waves from vintage synths, bells, resonant filters, plucked and bowed strings, vocals and vowel/formant sounds, wind instruments, percussion, noise, granular clouds and more – by means of 45 or so fully-realized algorithms, featuring multiple oscillators, wavetables, filters, VCAs, ring modulators, and so on under the hood.
Macro oscillator featuring 40+ fully-realized digital synthesis algorithms
Produce millions of different sounds easily – classic waves and telecoms babble, bells and whistles, percussion and ambience
Just two controls morph through the sweet spots of each algorithm
Great for triggered percussion
Awesome for crazy complex waveform synthesis
Phenomenal for glitchy out-of-control modulated sounds
Incredibly deep, but easy to use
It’s like a library of the greatest synth sounds of all time
