TipTop Audio’s Fold Processor is both a wavefolding ‘distortion’ module and a sub octave generator. Fold allows you to take pure waveforms like sines and triangles and morph them into new, harmonically rich timbres. Subtle or aggressive west coast style sounds are only few patch cables away.
Here’s what TipTop Audio Say About the Fold Processor:
The Fold Processor is a voltage-controlled wave multiplier and sub-octave generator. The circuit is based on a classic diode design that adds odd harmonics by folding the incoming signal, followed by subdivided square waves.
The wave folder creates new waveforms from standard sine, triangle, sawtooth, and square waves and includes a CV input with an attenuator, making it very easy to create beautifully animated folding sounds. Adjustable voltage-controlled Inject alters the bias point creating an even wider palette of sounds.
The subdivide generator squares the fold output generating 4 more sounds spaced one octave apart, each with its own gain knob and mixed to the Subdivide output jack. Mixing the four can create anything from discordant square wave swarms to sweet harmonic oscillator stacks, from a stable square version of the folded wave to freaky PLL-like glitched slides.
Overall results can sound evil at times and sweet at others, a true multi-faced devil.
