Each modulation device is a processor that manipulates incoming audio signals with an LFO, etc., influencing its function.
Chorus, with four different Character modes, each with its own DSP architecture and different X + Y controls:
CE- A synth-style friend, with different inspirations in the tone (Tone + Width)
DD- Subtle, 80s, and coming from all sides (Time + Balance)
8v- Eight voices swirling thru caverns of feedback (FB + Width)
x2- Classic voice doubling circuit (Time + Width)
A chorus effect with an adjustable LFO with phase offset for the right channel (R Phase).
Flanger, with four different Character modes, each with its own DSP architecture:
DP- That digital, scrapy cousin who chews up sound
MX- A firm, pedal-style classic
TFX- Smooth and sparkly, with some edge
WA- Stronger, but subtly delicate
Also has an Alternate Character toggle to switch to a subtle variation of the selected mode; Stereo-ize option, to invert the right modulation signal; a Manual Override mode, which disables the internal LFOs and presents a Mod parameter that the user can target with their own modulation signals; and an Added Dirt option, to insert a little noise for additional coloring.
A flanger effect with an adjustable LFO and feedback parameters for both magnitude (Feedb.) and phase (Neg.). This device can be set to Retrig(ger) on incoming note messages.
Phaser, with four different Character modes, each with its own DSP architecture:
GS- Our spikey #1 friend
EHx- Classy and smooth, with silky motion
MX- A raspy devil, but solid
MF- Pleasantly greasy and deep
Various Modulation Curve options are available:
Phaser- A more "traditional" modulation curve (the default)
Speaking- A shape that can produce "vowel" sounds
Barber ↑- Barber pole-esque effect, spinning upward
Barber ↓- Barber pole-esque effect, spinning downward
Also has an Alternate Character toggle to switch to a subtle variation of the selected mode; Stereo-ize option, to invert the right modulation signal; and a Manual Override mode, which disables the internal LFOs and presents a Mod parameter that the user can target with their own modulation signals.
A phaser whose Frequency setting is controlled by an LFO modulator module by default. Separate phase (ø) controls exist for the frequency on the L(eft) and R(ight) channels so that you can keep everything synced but interesting. Also includes a feedback (FB) control and a high-pass filter with adjustable cutoff frequency and slope (from anywhere between
A rotary-speaker emulation that modulates the signal's placement in the stereo field.
An amplitude modulator that is controlled by an LFO of various waveshapes. This device can be set to Retrig(ger) on incoming note messages.
