The Octopus contains one Matrix for Oscillator and Filter Frequency Modulation synthesis and another Matrix for general modulation. The key component for building a sound is the instrument’s 8 oscillators, 2 filters and up to 32 envelopes. These components are all it needs to create anything from classic “old school” FM timbres to complex sounds far beyond those possible with conventional FM synthesis.
