Synth Glossary

Ring Modulator:
Takes two sounds as its input (e.g. from two oscillators) and takes their difference to create a new sound, normally metallic sounding....


This is one of the classic pieces in analogue synth history. Brian Eno still caries one around and Klaus Schule Schulze still uses his on every recording. The pin-block patching is a little strange at first, but the versatility is like that of a modular unit. You can patch anything into anything and the built-in reverb, while a little cheezy, can be anywhere in the signal chain.
