JONO is a software musical instrument inspired by modular synthesizers.
By providing a mixture of classical and experimental elements it can serve as an interesting addition to your setup or as a standalone tool.



The sound starts with pair of oscillators, modulated by the layered LFO and the sequencer. Each oscillator has a couple of ranges and waveshapes, but the real treat is the LFO modulation, which allows you to mix three different LFOs into patterns and rhythms in a very simple yet powerful interface enhanced by the oscilloscope.
The mix of these oscillators passes through the state-variable filter, which is modulated by yet another layered LFO, offering three standard filter functions - lowpass, highpass and bandpass.
At the end of the signal chain you can find a stereo echo and a recorder - for recording short bits of your work right away, without connecting additional software.
The sequencer works as you expect it to - providing control over the amount of steps, variable loop length and the speed for each sequence (two sequencers for two oscillators)..
JONO comes with a set of presets, but also allows you to save your own. For people who don't like looking for the right sound for long time, we added a 'RANDOMIZE' button, which randomizes the whole setup.

JONO supports MIDI - both for classic pitch control from a MIDI keyboard - as well as for control of the main parameters with knobs or sliders.

JONO was built using Cycling 74 technology. JONO was released by LOM and programmed by Jonáš Gruska in 2012.
