Ammo Modulation Oscillators

Available in three variants:

Ammo 100LA Modulation Oscillator

Ultra Compact LFO and Modular Audio Oscillator with over 100 Waveform Shapes
Ammo 100LA (Front View)

Arm your rack with the Ammo 100 “Light Artillery” and take Reason modular synthesis and LFO production to the next level with 128 basic and complex waveforms, in a handy, ultra-compact half-U rack size.

With a massive frequency range, Ammo 100LA features an all-audio rate internal oscillator path suitable for both audio and CV output, and the essential controls are available in folded view, saving you valuable screen real estate in your Rack.

Whether standalone or in a Combinator, Ammo 100LA is the fastest, smallest and simplest way to get the modulation shape you need.

Product Details

Designed and built by Reason users with over ten years experience in the software, Ammo 100LA is lightweight, ultra-compact oscillator designed for quick LFO production or as the centre of a modular synthesizer. With 128 Ammo waveforms, and dual lag controls to independently smooth abrupt voltage changes of the up and down waveform slopes.

Ammo 100LA features

  • One modular audio oscillator
  • Free-running or key synced
  • 128 preset waveforms provide easy-to-use, predictable but complex modulation curves, and a random/noise wave
  • LFO range from 0.001 Hz to 30 Hz
  • Audio range from 30 Hz to 8,372 Hz with semitone and cents adjust
  • 31 tempo sync speeds from 32/1 to 1/128T
  • Invertible waveform depth control
  • One-shot mode plays a selected waveform once per gate and holds the final value
  • Pulse Width adjustment (currently LFO range only)
  • Lag controls: only Ammo uses separate lag controls (slew limit) for the up and the down slopes of the waveform for fine control of waveform smoothing
  • Lag controls can be used as low-pass filters
  • Fine-tune the output level with a master channel output adjustment
  • Positive and negative waveform value indicators for each output
  • Four bipolar CV rate outputs, including one invertible output
  • Four unipolar CV rate outputs, including one invertible output
  • Four audio outputs
  • Audio rate FM and AM inputs
  • Adjust the sensitivity of Re-ARM sources to rate modulation – a 7th, one or two octaves, or full range (26 octaves)!
  • Set portamento time with legato – play Ammo like a Theremin!
  • Select “always on” oscillator output, with or without keyboard pitch controlled, or add pitch and gate control with a Charlotte Envelope Generator
  • 360° phase adjustment

Updates

2.0.1

  • Fixed a decal ordering issue that could render the front folded waveselector incorrectly

2.0.0

  • Codebase updated to SDK2.2 (Reason 7+)
  • Fixed Sequencer CV input “drone” behaviour: the Note CV In connection (e.g. from Matrix Pattern Sequencer’s Note CV Out or another LFO signal) no longer also requires a Gate CV connection in order to change pitch. A “CV Note only” connection can only be applied when both “Free” (Oscillator Free Run) is “On”, and “Kbd/Porta” is not “off”.
  • Fixed issue with one-shot outputting incorrect value at slow rates
  • Amended several waveform graphics to better reflect final value for one-shot hold (at 0° Phase)

1.2.0

  • Oscillator can now operate free running or key event waveform reset when not using either an external envelope or one-shot mode via the new “Free” button. Note that this control is ignored if One-Shot is enabled

1.1.1

  • One-shot mode now retriggers correctly

1.1.0

  • Added logarithmic lag mode
  • Improved startup performance

Product Details

Designed and built by Reason users with over ten years experience in the software, Ammo provides a set of unique modulation tools, including features never seen before in Reason, including multiple oscillator sync modes, and dual-mode/dual-slope lag controls to independently smooth abrupt voltage changes of the up and down waveform slopes.

Ammo 400R features:

  • Four audio oscillators
  • 135 preset waveforms provide easy-to-use, predictable but complex modulation curves, and a random stepped wave
  • Massive native frequency range from 0.001 Hz to 8,372 Hz, plus 31 tempo sync speeds from 32/1 to 1/128T
  • Select “always on” oscillator output, or retriggered keyboard control, including a built-in 6-stage amp envelope
  • 360° phase adjustment
  • Invertible waveform depth control
  • Set portamento time per oscillator with legato – play Ammo like a Theremin!
  • One-shot mode plays a selected waveform once per gate
  • Apply a single “Master” rate (Oscillator A) to control rates all other “Slave” oscillators (B, C and D)
  • Choose from three oscillator synchronisation modes, Hard, Soft Phase or Soft Overlap, to sync slave oscillators to the master oscillator
 

Voltage Processing Matrix

  • Add or subtract all four oscillators with each other, individually per oscillator output
  • Lag controls: for the first time in Reason use separate lag control (slew limit) for the up and/or down stages of the waveform, and choose whether the slew limiting should be linear or logarithmic
  • Lag controls can be used as low-pass filters
  • Fine-tune the output level with a master channel output adjustment
  • Crossfade an oscillator with summed inputs from other oscillators, or select to sum by itself
  • Positive and negative waveform value indicators for each output
  • Four CV rate outputs per channel
  • One audio output per channel
 

Re-ARM: Remote Analogue Routing Matrix

  • Quickly set up performance controllers for Pitch Wheel, Mod Wheel, Aftertouch and Expression to major Ammo targets
  • Use the Internal Routing Matrix to direct up to four sources to two targets each. Includes all the major targets plus deeper control possibilities
  • Audio rate FM and AM available from the next adjacent oscillator
  • Adjust the sensitivity of Re-ARM sources to rate modulation – a 7th, one or two octaves, or full range (26 octaves)!
  • Switch Ammo VPM lag adjustment from linear to logarithmic mode
  • An “extra” set of four CV inputs and outputs are available

Ammo 1200BR (Front View)

Arm your rack and take Reason modulation to the next level with Ammo’s 136 basic and complex waveforms.

Product Details

Designed and built by Reason users with over ten years experience in the software, Ammo provides a set of unique modulation tools, including features never seen before in Reason, including multiple oscillator sync modes, and dual-mode/dual-slope lag controls to independently smooth abrupt voltage changes of the up and down waveform slopes.

Ammo 1200BR features

The 1200BR has all the features of the 400R above, plus:

Voltage Processing Matrix

  • Lag controls: for the first time in Reason use separate lag control (slew limit) for the up and/or down stages of the waveform, and choose whether the slew limiting should be linear or logarithmic
  • Send button to route signals through the Battery Low Frequency Ordnance Processor
 

Battery Low Frequency Ordnance Processor

  • Process four channels of external audio, and/or the Ammo oscillators through it’s built-in chain of module
  • Sample & Hold, with noise modulation, with a separate square wave oscillator per channel to set the S&H rate
  • Comparator outputs either the highest, lowest or difference value of each input pair per sample batch for near-instant waveform switching to create brand new, fluid waveforms
  • Advanced proprietary electro-switch can modulate the input waveform with itself, extra LFOs, or it’s paired oscillator channel. Features four additional CV-rate LFOs with 25 waveforms, which can additionally be used via ReARM either internally, or made available to output via extra CV Outputs
  • Attentuator with Scale (an extra waveform depth control), Shift (+/- voltage with no scaling, for bipolar to unipolar conversion) and a soft Limiter (0 dB)
  • Envelope mode switcher: set the envelope to use Charlotte’s CF mode instead of standard Reset
  • Set ReARM internal CV-rate FM from exponential to linear. (Audio-rate FM is currently available as exponential only)
  • Choose linear or logarithmic modes independently for lag up and lag down controllers
  • Electro-Switch pulse width adjustment allows you to individually set the pulse width for the each of the Electro-Switch LFOs for shuffle effects
 

Re-ARM: Remote Analogue Routing Matrix

  • Further targets are available in the Performance section
  • An extra routable target per source, with an automatable Off/On switch for each row of sources
  • The Internal Routing Matrix features many more selectable sources and targets from the Battery section
