The CubuSynth Engine is a dual analog VCO with wave shaping functions, internal modulations and a chaos generator.
It is based around the 3340 chip and features 4 Waveforms + Wavefolder per VCO and 4 Modulated Outputs, all simultaneously.
The CubuSynth Engine can work as 2 independent VCOs, or as one complex FM oscillator.
With its inernal "Chaos Engine" it creates semi-random voltages, generated by the 2
oscillator cores. This signal is then normalized to the CV inputs for Pulse width
modulation and exponential FM.
Each of the 2 VCOs offers a switch to select one of the 4 waveshapes to be used by the
wavefolders, and the linear FM input normalisations.

Looks great! Can't wait to build!

PCB and panel really good quality. The build guide: perhaps the best I've seen in my 50 years of (hobby)building and (by profession) repairing audio and video gear. Well done, Ruben!

The Cubusynth Engine VCO has very good build quality, is looking great in the rack and sounds absolute awsome!
I especially like the wavefolder, chaos generator (sort of mini touring machine) and the special outputs like 1 vs 2, ringmod and amplitude modulation. The build guide is very good and the support of the developer excellent. One of the best complex oscillators based on a 3340 you can get at the moment!
