How many oscillators is too many oscillators? Is there such a thing?
If you’ve never happened across the mad genius of Youtuber LOOK MUM NO COMPUTER, you’ve seriously been missing out. His previous work includes the construction of a pushbike-mounted synth and a frankly disgusting guitar/fidget spinner/synthesiser hybrid.
His latest build is a synth with 100 oscillators. Because one, two or three just doesn’t cut it these days.
Why stop at three? The alarmingly insane LOOK MUM NO COMPUTER has outdone himself with a 100 oscillator ‘MEGA DRONE SYNTH’.
Ridiculousness of the build aside, this machine actually sounds pretty righteous. The tone compounds surprisingly well as each oscillator is powered up… I don’t even want to think about what went into tuning this beast.
