Sample text

The difference between these two modules is that Resonator À (minus) reverses the phase (polarity) of the effect, producing a hollower sound than Resonator + (plus). The Resonator can be used to produce metallic and flanging effects that emulate the sound of classic analogue flangers. Four Modulation Type buttons let you select the type of modulation to apply to the selected effect. Depending on the type of modulation you select, the parameter sliders below will change to provide the appropriate type of modulation controls.

Depending on the type of modulation you select, the parameter sliders below will change to provide the appropriate type of modulation controls. LFO modulation uses a low-frequency triangle wave as a modulation source, the rate and amplitude of which are determined by the Mod Rate and Mod Amount controls, respectively. Envelope Follower modulation causes the selected effect to dynamically track the input signal by varying with the amplitude envelope of the audio signal. As the signal gets louder, more modulation occurs.

Harmonic noise not only contains a fundamental frequency component, such as the 50 Hz component of AC mains electricity line noise, but also contains significant components at the odd or even harmonics of this fundamental frequency. If you were to remove only the 50 Hz component of AC line noise, you would still hear significant amounts of noise at 100 Hz (the 22 Optional Digidesign Plug-ins second harmonic), 150 Hz (the third harmonic), and so on. Harmonic filters not only remove the fundamental frequency they are set to, but they also remove all the odd and even harmonics of that frequency.
