So I came across this app software for AM modulation that seems kind of inspiring:
And I started wondering how something like what they’re doing here might be achieved in Eurorack (sans the circular display, which while nice, I don’t really think is an absolute requirement and I don’t find it all that helpful anyhow).
What things seemed to boil down to, is that I could assemble a bunch of modules to take a couple of LFOs and perform a selection of logic or arithmetic operations on them to produce an output that could be used as an AM CV for an external VCA to AM some external audio (VCO, or sample, or whatever). And maybe achieve some results not too dissimilar from what you can get out of VOLBot.
So I started to head towards a CV addressable switch plus some kind of logic module such as the NonlinearCircuits ANA.
But then I realized that Warps is pretty darn close already. What I’d like to see is operations more tuned for CVs than signals, such as Min and Max as well as multiply and am still pondering others. I don’t think that for CVs, the vocoder is very useful and not sure that two multipliers are needed. There could be some offsetting issues as the outputs, intended to be AM CVs, are likely better as unipolar signals. The output could just be rectified, but another option might be to condition the inputs so they’re unipolar on the way in to the algorithm operation…
I haven’t attempted to build the Warps code from source but I’d think that at a minimum, replacing a couple of the less CV useful modulation algos with min and max would be all that difficult, once I can actually build the code…
