A versatile and highly useful ring modulator designed by David G. Dixon.
- Dedicated ac and dc inputs (all four can be used at the same time).
- Attenuators for x and y input groups.
- Polarity switches for x and y inputs (positive, negative or both).
- Unique ‘q’ control which stands for “quadrant” which allows you to shift the multiplication into positive or negative quadrants.
- Very low leakage from x input (when q is in center).
- Changing the q value in fm adds the signal frequencies back into the sum+difference frequencies (typical output of a rigmod) which adds richness to the classic ringmod sound and allows for many variations of bell tones, chimes and mallet-type timbres.
- Can be used as a linear vca.
- Great for waveshaping (especially two synced audio sources).
- Excellent for cv mangling (use the dc inputs and play with the rectifier switches).
- Connecting cv sources to the ac inputs results in interesting lag effects.
