viva Analog “Bleeding Aliaser” // jcm(c)2009
Having introduced the “bit Crusher” category of effector circuits with my original Nyquist Aliaser (c) audio-rate sampler in 2005, I wanted to challenge myself and find a creative and natural sounding way to get rid of the clock (carrier); essentially leaving unchanged the strong intrinsic sonic qualities of the original class-A architecture.
As a “ringy” type of effect, the specific thing I like about intentional sub-Aliasing is its ability to leave the bottom end of the spectrum unaltered. In my opinion this makes Aliasing a little more musical an effect than the harmonically messier-sounding (multiplying) Ring Modulator.
My first design was then modified so complete clock nulling could be achieved.
… yielding Analogue perfection!
