- Soulsby Synths is at Booth H254, which is on the first floor conveniently near the toilet!
Oscidrum software for Oscitron
- Engine sample rate controllable locally or via V/Oct input
- Each instrument has volume, pitch, length and delay FX parameters
- Currently 2 banks of sounds available (this will increase in time)
- 8 user patterns (also saves instrument parameters)
- 16 Atmegatron patterns
- 16 User patterns
- MIDI input via mini-jack
- Chord generation via 2x V/Oct inputs
- V/Oct output

Orders placed at the Webshop will not be dispatched until the 25th April.
If you want to find out more about the Oscitron, check out the new in depth reviews from fluxwithit.com. Hear a break beat through the wavetable sampling and lots more. There's also a quick look at the uni-five utility module. Well worth checking out!
Soulsby Synths will have a rack full of Oscitrons to demo. There's also a raffle with some awesome prizes.
Soulsby Synths will have all their product range to demo during the day. In the evening Paul Soulsby will be doing a live modular performance with DREAMTRAK. This will prominently feature Oscitrons, including the unique vocoder-style effect.
Building on the success of Superbooth 16, this years event promises to be bigger and better than ever. Soulsby Synths will be demonstrating all their current products and hopefully some new ones too. Booth H254.
The Oscitron is launched!
Soulsby Synths have launched their first Eurorack module, The Oscitron, on the first day of this year's NAMM show. It is available from their website and will soon be available from retailers (see website for list). It comes bundled with the Uni-Five utility module for £260. The modules are also available separately.
The Oscitron is an 8-bit wavetable oscillator. The audio engine is based on the Atmegatron desktop synth module but has many differences too. These include an audio input that can sample wavetables and an adjustable audio engine resolution.
Other features include pitch quantizer, 15 filter algorithms, wave-crusher pulse width and phaser effects. There are 5 CV inputs, a clock input which can be routed to many parameters and an audio input and output.
As with the Atmegatron, there will be numerous software versions released for the Oscitron. A port of the the Odytron analogue modelling software will be released soon after launch.
The Uni-Five is the companion module to the Oscitron and converts bipolar LFOs and 8V envelopes to 0-5V control voltages suitable for the Oscitron inputs.
Pete Fowler limited edition Atmegatron
There are 2 other exciting announcements at NAMM this year. First a new limited edition Atmegatron designed by Pete Fowler (Super Furry Animals / Monsterism). Only 30 have been made, each signed and numbered. The design features a bright pink glossy finish with monsterism screen print patterning.
Finally, the initial prototype of the Atmultitron is on demonstration. It is a 6 voice polyphonic 8-bit synthesizer with 3 octave keyboard. The final specification will feature Eurorack connectivity and wavetable sampling from the Oscitron, along with sequencing and versatile modulation routing. The Atmultitron is aimed to be released in mid-2018.
“The initial prototype of the Oscitron was premiered at NAMM 2016”, said Paul Soulsby CEO of Soulsby Synthesizers. “One year on we are delighted to launch the finished product and premiere the next big project, the Atmultitron.”
And to kick off the year, here's our brand new product, the Oscitron! It's an 8-bit wavetable oscillator rammed full of features, some from the Atmegatron and some new. We're also launching it's companion module, the Uni-Five. It's a utility module that converts bipolar LFOs and 8V envelopes to unipolar 5V control voltages.
It launches on the 19th Jan. It's £260 (inc VAT) for the Oscitron/Uni-five bundle. The modules are also available separately.
There will be more demo vids and tracks coming up over the next couple of weeks. Click the link below for a 2 minute introduction.
