Ring Modulation

April 4, 2014

Have a Synth kit? Try boosting it with an XOR to create a simple ring modulator, an addition that will allow you to create complex sounds that in our opinion, sound eerie, wobbly, metallic, droney and totally amazing.

How To Make It

STEP 1

Build the circuit in the attached file "ring modulator.png". This is a basic ring modulator based on the XOR gate, you can read about what's happening in the attached file "ring modulator explained"

STEP 2

Experiment with your basic ring modulator by tuning the oscillators to see and hear the output change as the sound is modulated.

STEP 3

If you have a whole synth kit you can add to your ring modulator to create some even crazier noises! Check out our example in the attached files named "ringmodulatorextended 1 and 2". You can read about it in the attached file "Ring Modulations Explained"
