Description

Evolved from the oscillator mixing section of Mutable Instruments’ desktop hybrid synths, Warps is designed to blend and combine two audio signals. A variety of wave-shaping and cross-modulation methods – some of them emulating classic analog circuits, some of them purely digital – are provided by the module.

With Warps, the cross-modulated sound can be sculpted with control voltages along 4 dimensions:

  • by controlling the amplitude and distorting the input signals
  • by smoothly scanning through the collection of modulation algorithms
  • by adjusting a timbre parameter controlling the brightness/harshness of the modulated signal.

Since many classic cross-modulation effects work best when the carrier is a simple waveform – for example, a sine wave for ring-modulation or a buzzing waveform for vocoding – Warps includes a digital oscillator offering a handful of classic waveforms. This internal oscillator, which tracks V/Oct and supports through-zero FM, will replace the carrier audio input – freeing up one oscillator in your system for other duties!

Main Features:

  • Continuous morphing between 7 cross-modulation algorithms
  • Control of timbre richness/brightness.
  • Each audio input has a built-in digital VCA with emulation of analog soft-clipping.
  • Audio input 1 can be replaced by an internal digital oscillator with through-zero FM. Available waveforms: sine, triangle, sawtooth, pulse, filtered noise.

Algorithms:

  • Crossfade
  • Cross-folding
  • Digital model of analog diode ring-modulation
  • Digital ring-modulation
  • Bitwise XOR modulation
  • Comparison & Rectification
  • 20-band vocoder
