Max for Cats have just announced a free version of OSCiLLOT – their powerful polyphonic modular synthesis system. Users of Max for Live can download OSCiLLOT Lite and get patching right away – the Lite version comes with 26 modules and features 3 voices of polyphony.
Check out the video below for a demo of what’s included and what’s possible with OSCiLLOT Lite. As with all things modular, it’s the creative combination and interaction of modules (not their absolute number) that makes things interesting.

OSCiLLOT 1.1 Brings New Modules and MIDI Mapping Mode
Max for Cats have also just updated OSCiLLOT to version 1.1. The update brings Max 7 compatibility and introduces a new Macro Mapping feature, allowing you to remotely control any OSCiLLOT parameter via automation and MIDI for full hands-on control of your modular patches.
The number of included OSCiLLOT modules also continues to grow, and for this update the DSP wizards at Surreal Machines have produced several special units to bolster your modular creation (or destruction) needs. The new modules include:
•SM Precision HighCut: a non-resonant Butterworth lowpass filter for surgical lowpass needs, with slopes from 6bB to 48dB
•SM Analog Slew Delay: This is an analog-inspired delay unit with multiple styles of slew-limiter audio-input modification, BBD-inspired tonal shaping and filtering, warm feedback saturation and subtly distorted bass presence
•SM XOVER: high-quality crossover filters to separate your audio into low- and high frequency parts
•SM Destroyer: digital mayhem for your modular
•SM Multiband Distortion: high quality oversampled saturation across three tunable bands of operation
•GrainResynth: a granular resampler with modulation
