Usability

Usability

At its core, each module performs a single function. This function can be used to generate interesting, useful, musical results. Getting familiar with a module's behavior should come naturally.

Performance

Performance

Our modules are fun to tweak. These are modules you want to touch. Modules you want to interact with. Modules you want within arm's reach.

Illuminated Knob

Illuminated Knobs

Our knobs light up! You can always see what your West Oakland Music Systems modules' parameters are set to, especially in the darkest of performance environments.

Mute

Mutes On Outputs

Our instruments are literally mutable (in the audio/CV output sense of the word). We like mutes on outputs. We don't think there are enough in the world.
