DCO

Abbreviation for Digitally Controlled Oscillator. A DCO serves the same purpose as a VCO in synthesizers, only it is under digital control instead of being controlled by an analog voltage. DCO’s tend to be much more stable and less susceptible to environmental conditions – especially with regard to tuning – than their analog counterparts, but some synthesists complain they are too sterile and perfect sounding.
