A ring modulator gets its name from the way the original analog schematic used a ring of diodes to multiply two signals together. Honestly the schematics is more of a square, but who cares when you can trash your sound beyond recognition in both pleasant and horrible ways?
The kHs Ring Mod uses either an internal sine/noise generator or a secondary input as the second signal in the modulation, and allows for versatile transformation of the modulating signal.
This plugin is a “Snapin”. Kilohearts plugins work great together, and all the snapins can work double duty as modular components inside our snapin hosts. There are several different hosts:
• Snap Heap, a free host that allows you to quickly and easily combine your Snapins to create your own serial and parallel modular effects units,
• Multipass, a multiband modular host,
• and Phase Plant the award-winning, semi-modular softsynth that enables you to add your full effects chain right inside the preset area.
You can also use it as a regular VST/AU plugin.
