  • The pulse width can be variably adjusted via controller or CV modulation
  • The frequencies of both oscillators can be synchronized (Weak Mode or Strong Mode) to achieve the unique "Sync" sound
  • Power consumption: 70 mA (+12 V), 55 mA (-12 V)
  • Dimensions (W x D x H): 81 x 58 x 129 mm

It doesn't shake foundations , but a very good pretty sounding voice
Tunnel One, 13.10.2017
The Dual osc is nice, good sounding module, with sufficient features, and sync options. I think only downside I would give it, is that the range of tune for the voices is not very broad, and stay within basic frequencies, which is odd for eurorack modules, where most oscillators go from low inaudible to high inaudible. Roland chosse to play safe perhaps :) nevertheless the module sounds great, very nice sounding voice and I love the dual feature, which allows for more creativity.

Dual VCO
Son of MooG, 23.07.2018
The module 512 with its two independent VCOs brings me together with the 505 VCF real Roland analog sound in Eurorack. There are only a few VCOs that also sound unfiltered very well and musically; these are part of it. Along with my Analogue Systems RS-95E and the Mother-32 Oscillator, the 512 forms the top trio of my Modular. Unlike the System 100m model, the VCOs have their own output for each waveform. The tracking is perfect for> 7 octaves and the tuning remains very stable after warming up. The VCOs can be synchronized in both directions, whereby you can choose between soft and hard. The fader heads are a bit shaky, but you can make precise settings despite short fader paths. In contrast, the Fußlagen-selector snaps on and also the tuning pot makes a flawless impression. The same applies to the overall processing, also on the back. The 512 was made in the US and compared to the 505, which comes from Japanese manufacturing, I could not see any difference in build quality. The price seems to me therefore also as appropriate.
