22 - Manglers

When you need something to seriously alter the audio quality and other aspects of your tracks…this is the bank where you should look!!

#2210 Bad Acid Jumble

Messes up the input signal. Delay controls how frequently Jumble changes. Disjoint controls how incomprehensible the result is. Try it out on spoken word for laughs. Quad in, quad out.

#2211 Evil Distortion

Distorts the holy hell out of your input by folding the negative portion of the signal to the positive side, readjusting the ‘Process’ gain to make part of the signal negative again, and repeating the foldover process. ‘Sections’ determines how many times this happens. Use the filters to zero in on cool sounds. Summed in, mono out.

#2213 Growl

An old favorite from modular synthesizer days. An envelope follower modulates the speed of an LFO that is chopping the signal. Mono in, stereo out.

#2214 Low Res Digital

Reducing the Sample Rate introduces aliasing distortion. Reducing Output Bits introduces quantization distortion. Didn’t we spend a couple decades trying to get rid of this stuff ??? Quad in, quad out.

#2215 DigiDegrader

An lfo driven 24 steps programmable look-up table changes bit depth & sample rate. Dithering is also available. For personal programming set t_rate to off and use the step # knob to program the tables for sample rate and output bits. A stereo modfilter, swept by input env,lfo or pedal1, completes the nasty job. Watch levels and extremely low bit depth. Stereo I/O.

#2216 Dist-o-rt Maniac

Comp>Eq>Comb>Distortion>Comb>Eq>Gate> Crystals>Diffusor. Tweaked w/single coil rear pickup. Definitive distortion tool with: -pre and post 5 bands parametric eq -curves manual and remote morphing -pre comb for distortion character -post comb for alternate coloration. Summed in/Stereo out.

Very short delay w/high feedback values introduce comb filtering. Pre_distortion comb is a character tool that dynamically interferes with harmonics. Use it to create the tonal personality of the distortion. Be careful with high positive intensity settings! Post_distortion comb filtering sounds like a static flanger. With careful tweaking you can add a different statictonal quality to your preamp. Comb filtering, equalizers and in-between curves morph settings can dramatically change your sound. You have now access to unlimited distortion possibilities.

#2217 Inharmonic Trance

Frequency shifting modulated to make your synth pads inharmonic with a pleasant rhythmic pulse. Setting LFO faster can process reverb to make a nice vibrato or twinkle in stereo.

Vol ped>dly>diffchorus>easytap>4bands dlys. Electronica patch, useful to create bursts or clouds of sound or noise, whose timbre frequencies evolve in time. Looping available w/multitap fdbkdly. Try different polyrhythms in the banddlys fdbk routing section. Mtaps/Btaps balance available in the Masters menu. Patch a vol.pedal to Assign2. Summed I/Stereo O.
