Zero-1 is in essence a single oscillator virtual analog synthesizer (VA) loosely based on the CS01 monosynth which was released in 1982 as an affordable entry into the world of analog synthesis… but with a twist! Rather than simply sample the basic DCO oscillators from the original instrument I thought it might be more interesting to first pass them through a tube overdrive and Watkins Copicat tape delay.
Mangling the raw oscillators in this manner injected a significant amount of character and movement into the original waveforms – even the splice in the tape loop adds something! Five oscillators were multi-sampled in 24 bits in this manner: triangle, sawtooth, 50% square, 25% square, and PWM.

Switchable Filter Emulations
One unique feature of the Zero-1 is the ability to switch between a Mk I and Mk II CS01 filter emulation. This selects either a 12dB/oct or 24dB/oct filter and changes the livery of the control panel to match the original variants – a flash of genius by Stephen Howell at Hollow Sun!
