Right from first listen, Oxium brings a smile to your face. It's a really good, classic-sounding synth for people who don't necessarily want to sound like Swedish House Mafia, but who still want quick and easy access to modern-style modulation performance.
It's based on a two-oscillator architecture, with each oscillator offering up to four simultaneous waveforms (saw, square, pulse and triangle) and pulse width modulation. There's also ring modulation for each pairing, and independent per-oscillator glide and portamento control.
Oxium has some great sounds, the arpeggiator is a delight, the presets are useful, the modulation is fantastic, and despite a few niggles, it's a great instrument that any synthesist will enjoy.45 Stars
