Nyquist was a Bleeding Aliaser

Developed for Adrian McCullough, Bass player for Roosevelt Radio.

Adrian’s original request was to make his Bass sound like a saw-tooth synth tone. The only circuit I knew that could come anywhere close to doing that is my original Nyquist Aliaser (c) 2005 audio-rate sampler. The specific thing I like about Aliasing is its ability to leave the bottom end of the spectrum unaltered, making it more musical than a Ring Modulator.

My original design was modified so total clock nulling could be achieved and the effect made recordable. I made a short bench video to demonstrate the noise-less capabilities of the new “tunable” circuit

Adrian’s Bass/Aliaser application can be heard in the intro of the Roosevelt Radio song “Order in the Chaos” (produced by Chris Wonzer)
