Hey Guys Smile

Was wondering if anyone else in here have purchased an Axoloti DSP modular thingy? They are really awesome. 100% open source. One thing I miss about the Nord g2 is the ability to load samples. Axoloti does this.

Anyway, not affiliated with Axoloti in any way, just a happy customer. I think it is an great little machine with endless posibilities. I would much rather get this than a Microgranny, for example, cause this one can do other things too Smile

What do you think?

Hello Jaffasplaffa,

I also bought one... It is very exciting and I'm already impressed by it's sound quality, all those object not present in other hardware modular synths, the possibility to program new ones, the GPIO, open source licence, the price. I hope a lot of members of this community will give it a chance...

Well compared to Nord Nm1 and Nord g2.. Axoloti is way more capable of sound shaping, no doubt about that. And it is "future proof". It WILL be updated and lots of new objects coming all the time Smile I havent sold my Nm1 or G2 but I think Axoloti is a refreshing little gem Smile

But about the quality, I think the Nord g2 sounds a little bit better. Axoloti is a bit digital.

I'm seriously thinking of getting a couple... What's the aliasing like at high freqencies?

Sorry to answer so late.
That's worse than Nord G2. One can hear aliasing quicker in high frequencies (Nord G2 seems excellent in that). But is it a object design problem or a hardware problem?
I would like to help you sending samples, but I'm afraid to compare things that can be optimized.

There is some aliasing, like xav says especially in high frequencies.

If you want to find out more, you could visit the community and do a search on aliasing and see what comes up. There have been some talk about oversampling objects internally to minimize aliasing.

A bit late o the party, but hey... At 65 euro the Axoloti is simply great. And if you like to do a little hacking, it's the most accessible thing I've seen. It can sound quite good, and of course it's equally useful for MIDI and general embedded systems apps. It can be viewed as a powerful dedicated Audio/MIDI "Arduino". While it "only" has a 168MHz ARM M4, you can do quite a bit with that since it's as close to the metal as you get. I reckon it's roughly equal in DSP power to 100MHz of DSP56k, possibly more if you go SIMD.

Any aliasing you hear is algorithm dependent. There are some nice BLEP oscillators in the 'factory' module library which are quite good in this respect, as well as some bandlimited distortion and such. There may be other bandlimited oscillators or non-linear processors in the community libraries or in Johannes Taleman's pipeline (Johannes is the maker of the Axoloti). With a lot of community library contributions, there are lots of aliasing oscillators and processors - you just have to avoid those if you don't like that.
