ODDular by Sound Dust Review

ODDular by Sound Dust is a hybrid sample instrument based around three specially coded beat synced super LFOs, a complex but very simple to use modulation matrix and an innovative user interface.

Sound Dust is the brainchild of Pendle Poucher, a Brighton UK based composer, sound designer and lover of funny noises. Sound Dust did send a review copy with no strings attached.

Sound

ODDular is using 3 LFOs to generate unusual sounds and use the LFOs at the same time to module several parameters and reshape the used samples. The LFO can also modulate one of the other LFO. Every LFO can modulate each other, and it will be time synced by design.

ODDular is packed with multi-samples from rare and sought after classic synths: EMS VCS3 Putney, Oberheim Xpander 6, Siel Orchestra and great sounding synth wildcards – Moog Dfam, Moog Voyager, Technics WSA1, Make Noise O-Coast and Nord Wave.
