Audio examples

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.

Ring Mod is one of the devices in the Kilohearts Toolbox bundle.

Product details

Ring Mod modulates the input with either an internal signal generator or a secondary input signal.

  • Mod. - Select a signal to modulate the input with.
  • Frequency - The base frequency of the internal oscillator or filter cutoff for the internal noise generator.
  • Spread - Shifts the frequency of the internal generator slightly for left and right channels to achieve a stereo effect.
  • Bias - Amount of positive bias to add to the secondary input.
  • Rectify - Amount of positive or negative rectification to apply to the of the secondary input.
  • Mix -The dry/wet mix of this effect. A lower value will let some of the unmodified signal through.

The Kilohearts Toolbox

Ring Mod is one of the devices in the Kilohearts Toolbox bundle.

The Kilohearts Toolbox devices all do one thing each, and they do it well. The philosophy behind this is to give our customers access to the building blocks of sound design and from there you can combine them into really interesting effects. In fact, many more esoteric RE:s are basically a few of these effects combined.

If you own a few, or all the Kilohearts Toolbox devices be sure to check out Kilohearts Toolbox Refill, a big pack of diverse combinators exploring the possibilities of the toolbox.

Usability standards

Kilohearts aim to provide Reason users with a wide range of audio effects that all utilize a common form language and interaction model. This allows for a great user experience that is really valuable when working with with big projects.
