Hello there, while i love my A4 for various reasons, i’m dissaponted since day 1 because of the weak oscilators. By weak i mean that they dont sound the same depending on the octave, and tend to get way thinner the lower the octave is.
Someone posted a detaliled demonstration of why this is happening technically wise, with images etc, but i cant find it now. Anyway, i dont care about what osciloscopes say, i care about my ears and my ears dislike A4 oscilators, not iit’s features, but it’s RAW sound.
I’ve read rumours that AK has a redessign in the circuitry that makes oscillators more consistent across octaves and as a result way fatter than A4’s OSCs. Is that true?
The demos seem to show much more character in the sound of em, i’ve heard some bits of very crispy saws and squares. But before i decide to spend the extra money to replace my A4 with an AK i’d like to know the truth about this oscillators thingy.
EDIT: Please dont tell me about tricks to make A4 sound fatter, like the hipass, and osc levels+filter drive etc, i know all that and it’s cool. But i do care about the RAW oscllators sound, unfiltered, unprocessed.
