Waveshaper for “Pulse Forming Process”
Inspired by the constant-breadth pulses that vibrating lips or reeds make: such as double reed (oboe, cor anglais, bassoon), free-air reed (harmonic, harmonium) and brass (trumpet, trombone) instruments. These produce “cyclical spectra” that emphasize fixed frequency bands: these spectra can also be found in instruments with multiple pickups (clavinet and electric guitar) and fretted stringed instruments when playing on a single string at a constant pick position (accoustic guitars)! And even Sax notes, though there is a lot else going on…
Allows CV modulation of pulse breadth. Lots of space between the fundamental and harmonics above 1kHz (variable).
Plus variable bass boost. Plus variable “sharkstooth” output for more triangular blips.
If any fixed breadth setting, the same high gaps and troughs will be present at the same frequencies, regardless of the note being played. This makes the constant width waveshaper very consistent for sitting in a mix.
