^ [XOR] is a logical statement but also bit operator which is sort of a combination of & [AND] and | [OR] . By applying this modulation to the classical wavetables you can achieve very interesting harmonics added to the sound. Especially when more voices are mixed, it comes to some really interesting dirty digital modulation artefacts. ^ [XOR] is intended to be used as a sound module for a MIDI keyboard and it doesn`t produce any sound without the keyboard. It needs MIDI Bastl to interface the MIDI jack.
Instrument specific features
- 6 voice polyphony
- wavetable based – sine, saw, triangle, digi-noise
- played ONLY by MIDI using MIDI Bastl
- ^[xor], &[and], |[or] modulation
- arpeggiator – gate and note modes, different shapes, adjustable speed, MIDI clock sync,
- 8 different sound settings in one preset
- 6 presets
- full MIDI implementation (note, velocity, pitch bend, mod wheel sustain, CC, clock)
Note: It does not run from battery – because the battery would not power the MIDI Bastl via the chain connector.

We have made a demo and a prototype some time ago with Standuino. The new xor is much better now! You can see what the modulation does with the wavetables in this video.
