Ring (and/or Balanced) Modulation for the masses

I know we have some fans.

Let's talk.

Moody Sounds just uploaded this:



Sounds promising. :snax:

Regular mode: For fans of fans of Geezer Butler.
Short Circuit mode: For fans of robots with Norovirus.

I dig that enclosure and graphic, too.

:yay:

That sounds great! Love the short circuit mode. It's also the first Moody Sounds pedal that I think their graphics really worked on.

Ring mod is the thing I want to like A LOT.
But it just never works out in anything I try.....

someday it'll work?

Yes, someday it will work just fine.

I have a sort of love/hate thing going with IC balanced modulation (not saying that's what this is, just what it sounds like), on one hand I really like having access to the syrupy, filtered elasticity they tend to impart - on the other sometimes I want to hear the crystal lettuce chime of a sanded glass explosion erupt from the device.

I started to laugh uncontrollably at the short circuit demo. It's just... so hilarious :lol:

I think ring/balanced modulation is something you have to spend some time with to really understand how to use.

It's not like fuzz where you can just plug and play. :D

It is based on the carlin ring mod which has no carrier oscillator of it's own so that is probably part of it. However the carlin has no ICs or diode rings...I think it does its thing through transistor gates or something (closer to what an arp ring mod does)...


That video is Freppo's/parasit's carlin with an added carrier oscillator based on the LM13700.

My best guess anyway. I bought the ring mod kit and completely forgot about it until now.

I love ring mod, but it is the kind of thing I learned to play before learning guitar (which sucks now that I am learning guitar...my ring mod skills are dropping...or my tastes are changing...I just don't sound as good as I used to).

I also feel like it is the kind of thing that needs distortion around it. Personal taste though.

The two wahs on that thing seem nice and the little envelope seems like it would be fun, might check it out.

Eh, IDK, I like ring modulated sounds clean too. Though I wouldn't object to fuzz before or after either.

I like clean ring mods too, just something special about the way the sing (or I guess don't?) with the different waveform and harmonic content that a good distortion gives it.

Cool!

I gave the Carlin for last year's Secret Santa and I loved it when trying it. This is a nice development.
