Traditional subtractive synthesis starts with a complex waveform and then filters it down. A wavefolder allows for the opposite: start with simple waveforms and then fold it over itself to create extremely rich and complex timbres. Animate the fold and symmetry controls with CV to add even more life and movement to the sounds.
Wavefolding is a technique for reshaping waveforms that (as its name implies) actually folds a wave’s peaks back toward center whenever those peaks exceed a certain threshold.
Unlike a typical distortion circuit that simply clips any waveform that exceeds some threshold (resulting in increasingly harsh and uniform timbres), wavefolding creates all manner of complex waveshapes with rich, subtle, intertwined harmonics.
The addition of CV over the folding parameters yields a shifting, otherworldly sweep of sonic texture that is both musical and unique.
