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. Editing the Octopus is a breeze, because all controls are located on a single panel which is always on view, so you can see at a glance any synth parameter.
One of the Octopuses key features is its use of envelopes as a primary modulation source.
Oscillators are the Octopus' primary sound source. They are used to create additive waveforms made up of 32 harmonics.
