This video shows the Middle Path VCO combined with the Leapfrog Filter also made by North Coast Synthesis and combined with a Natural Gate by Rabid Elephant – to get some classic lowpass gate sounds from this massive dual VCO.
North Coast’s complex VCO is comfortable on a journey to the East or the West. It contains two triangle-core VCOs, each with four waveforms and standard V/octave control. As basic VCOs running independently these can be the heart of a traditional subtractive East Coast synthesizer. But the Middle Path’s oscillators can also be used together, with or without sync, to drive its unique multi-output Gilbert-style sine shaper. The shaper, which can also take external input, offers wave shaping, distortion, folding, phase modulation including through-zero, and imitation stereo. These effects take the sound into West Coast territory.
A very nice complex/dual VCO with a massive sound and very solid build quality.
