Very robust module, wide range of sounds, really sensitive controls.
Simon De Rycke 11.06.2021
This VCO module is rather unique, if you're reading reviews you probably already know that. It's everything you want it to be and more. Paired with another VCO for modulation/synchronisation you can get a really full spectrum of sounds out of this beast. The Divkid video about this module (go watch that instead of reading this review) covers this extensively. I've had this thing for over a year now and I still haven't tried every possible way to patch it into itself or other modules... Heck, I spent a week or two just getting to know the module at first just to be able to get it to behave like a bread-and-butter vco in a live-rig with some added flair. Subtlety is really key to get it to behave like a 'normal' VCO. Then again, you could just turn everything to 'zero' and just patch one of the outputs into VCF/VCA etc and call it a day, but then you just as well could get a Dixie VCO or something along those lines. In my opinion it's best to have a 'regular' VCO besides the Joranalogue Generate 3, if only for modulating it, but also because sometimes you just need a VCO to be plain and simple.

Everything feels very very sturdy, turning the knobs feels really smooth, flipping the switches feels very satisfactory. The only downside to the broad range of sounds this module provides is that it's really sensitive to little knob-turns. Whenever a finger, patch-cable, (a gust of wind... no just kidding)... brushes against one of the tuning knobs it actually does what it's supposed to do: change tuning. This is normal behaviour but nevertheless it can be very annoying. When using this module as a main VCO in a live-rig I suggest you use rubberbands wrapped around the base of the knobs to keep the module in tune. Talking about tuning: I've never noticed any drifting whatsoever, not even right after powering everything on, so in my experience this is a very stable and reliable VCO.

As an LFO it performs just as well but because I have those rubber bands wrapped around the knobs essentially locking them in place it's not a feature that gets a lot of use in my rig.

Joranalogue really delivers quality, even the packaging and included mounting screws are some of the best I've ever seen.

Very complex oscillator
xavierxeon 02.05.2021
At its heart this module has a triangle wave oscillator, that you can manipulate using through-zero linear and or exponential FM.

But you do not hear that triangle. Instead, what you hear is a definable mix of three waves derived from that triangle.

A fundamental channel (sine wave one octave above the core triangle), an even channel (saw wave two octaves above the core) and an odd channel. All channel share the frequency modulation of the core and the mix of each channel can be individually be through-zero modulated.

With enough modulation sources the module can behave similar to a wavetable oscillator.

However, this complexity is also its drawback. It is easy to make standard, boring VCO sounds or very experimental sounds.
But finding a musically pleasing middle ground can be a challenge.

Sound and built quality are excellent.

Meilleur VCO analogique
Gangrn 26.09.2020
Pour moi c'est un indispensable. Il est unique dans le monde des oscillateurs analogique pour une simple raison : la modulation de phase.

On peut donc en retirer des son très "FM numérique" abec toute les qualités de l'analogique.
La synchronisation est pour moi la meilleur de tous les VCO que j'ai pu tester. Elle répond directement à une large plage de fréquences.

Le son est incroyables et les possibilités infinies.

Si je devais ne garder qu'un VCO ça serait celui là

Modulation galore!
Cheleganta 22.04.2020
Ein Oszillator der Extraklasse: 5 Wellenformen gleichzeitig (in unterschiedlichen Oktaven); FM und Phase-Modulation "through Zero" also bipolar; Hard- und Softsync: fette Bässe, schmatzendes Kreischen, komplexe Wellenformen: alles in allem ein sehr variabler, sehr durchsetzungsfähiger Sound. Außerdem auf LFO schaltbar und dadurch alternativ eine vielschichtige Modulationsquelle. Wie stets eine gute Adresse, um sich einen Überblick zu verschaffen: DivKid ( bin sehr zufrieden und glücklich mit meinem Generate3 :-)
