viva Analog “Bleeding Aliaser” // jcm(c)2009
Having created the original Nyquist Aliaser (c) 2005 audio-rate sampler, I wanted to challenge myself and find a way to get rid of the clock (carrier) and not change the intrinsic qualities of my circuit; being Single-Ended and everything.
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, making it more musical than your “typical” (MOOG/Gilbert) multiplying Ring Modulator.
My original design was thus modified so total clock nulling could be achieved and the effect made more useful, especially in a recording situation.
I made a short bench video to demonstrate the noise-less capabilities of the new “tunable” circuit:
