Fun news. I’m psyched for this, and can’t wait to learn more.

Very nice!

I would love to see on the oscilloscope the difference between a Buchla-style Parallel “deadband” and a modified Serge-type Serial folding circuit. Does anyone know how this new folder compares to the uFold or the wavefolder that is built into the shapeshifter?

In a thread on MW, someone said of the two paradigms, “From what I can tell the difference happens in the last 10%. The Buchla goes dome-shaped while the Serge squares up.”

I’ve seen the uFold II in action on my 'scope, and it seems to be more dome-like to me, so assuming that it’s not something altogether different, I suspect it’s more Buchla-like in design.

That said, I’d also love to hear more on this topic from someone who’s not conjecturing from random material found on the internet.

Whaaaat??? That would really be great! Currently building a Buchla easel inspired case I would definitely have this as a part of a complex oscillator. Ring mod!!! :star_struck: (not part of an easel but I love my uMod!)

I am also quite curious to know if the fold and crossfade inputs respond to audio rate signals. I was a little sad when I noticed that you couldn’t CV the bias, but maybe these inputs could achieve a similar effect.

I think, just like on the Morgasmatron, there’s a phase inversion switch so if xfade is modulated at audio rate it should work as a ring modulator. Actually I think the modulator goes into the phase inverted input then taking the output from xfade would be the ring modulated signal.

Is that a switch on the front panel or is the modulating signal triggering the switch with a negative voltage?

Switch is on the front panel. I’ll explain it better:

  1. Patch a signal into in P
  2. Take the output from MIX to audio system
  3. Turn the switch to phase inversion and put the xfade knob to 12 o’clock, now there’s a copy of your signal that’s phase inverted, canceling the original signal.
  4. Send a modulating signal (a sine wave would be nice) to the xfade input and turn up the attenuverter
  5. Ring Mod!

Well that certainly is interesting way to design the module.

I am more thirsty for oscilloscope video now more than ever.

I can’t wait to hear the announcement from Intellijel soon!

Wow! Neat product and neat design. I’ll take one.
