Instruo neóni

Instruo's neóni is a classic-style analog oscillator with some unique features that stretch beyond the typical scope, including the fantastic capability for through-zero FM. This outstanding trait is what makes neóni stand out from all the other Instruo oscillators, allowing for a wide array of FM sounds that stay in tune across sequences! Unlike most oscillators which would stall out at 0Hz, through-zero FM instead inverts the polarity of its waveform until it returns to a positive voltage past 0 Hz. Additionally, the FM input functions with both AC & DC coupled signals, making it perfect for both audio and control rate modulation.

neóni provides individual waveform outputs for square, saw, triangle, and sine, plus a Final output based on a nonlinear wavefolder. Some other neat features from neóni include directional hard sync, precision soft sync, and split sawtooth morphing—all enabling the creation of heavily complex waveforms. For creating gnarly tones or intricate LFOs, Instruo's neóni is a great way to incorporate the wonderful world of through-zero FM into your modular system.

Instruō - Neóni Overview
FM with tonality! At its core, the Instruō neóni is a traditional analogue oscillator. What sets it apart from other oscillators in the Instruō product line is it’s Through-Zero FM functionality with AC and DC coupled operation. Add that to its precision soft sync and directional hard sync modes, nonlinear wavefolding, internal modulation routings, and you end up with the most tonal FM sounds imaginable.

Unlike traditional FM, where an oscillator momentarily stalls as negative voltage pulls its frequency down to 0 Hz, neóni inverts the polarity
of its waveforms until positive voltage pulls it back through 0 Hz.
This behavior allows for complex waveforms with less non-harmonic sidebands. Less clang, more bang!
Drop it all to subsonic territory for organic modulations of morphable voltage.
