Ringo is a Ring-Modulator that accepts both live input and sound files and it is capable of writing the output back to a sound file.
There are no experimental releases available at the moment.
Ringo is a Ring-Modulator that accepts both live input and sound files and it is capable of writing the processed signal to a sound file. The modulation signal can be synthesized with the 13 knobs under the 'harmonics' and 'subharmonic' labels and thus reach different levels of harmonic complexity. It can be operated from within the GUI or with any MIDI external controller.
- LIVE/FILE. Select the input source you will use.
- OPEN. If you selected FILE, click open to browse you drives for a sound file in .wav or .aiff format.
- PLAY. Click to play or stop the sound file.
- MONO/STEREO. Select the number of channels of both your Input and Output signals. If you select MONO, the signal will still be played back on channels 1 and 2 but the written file will be MONO.
- MODULATION. Move the slider to adjust the frequency of the modulation signal.
- CENTS. Move the slider to fine tune the frequency of the modulation signal. This control works in combination with the previous one.
- HARMONICS. Use this knobs to synthesize the modulation signal. You have up to the 7th harmonic from the fundamental frequency you have previously selected.
- SUBHARMONICS. Use this knobs to synthesize the modulation signal. Subharmonics are lower than the fundamental frequency by the ratios 1/2...1/7.
- WET/DRY. Use this slider to control the mix between the input and the ring-modulated signals.
- VOLUME. Move to adjust the output volume.
- REC. Click to write the output to a sound file in real-time. Click again to stop recording. A file labeled "Ringo_date@time.wav" will be created in the root folder of your computer.
- MIDI LEARN. To use the midi learn function just click on the [bng] located above each programmable control while moving the controller you want to link to it. This should assign it and store it for latter use.
