Device Details


Name | Version: zb.exciter 1.0
Author: ZlatkoBaracskai
Device Type: MIDI Effect
Description: zb.exciter induces the 2nd and 3rd harmonic of the incoming frequency components using Chebyshev or de Moivre theories to include or exclude difference intermodulation components, respectively Due to large increase in spectral content it allows for filtering before and after the non-linearity.
The drive2 and drive3 parameters control the pre-distortion gain.
The gain2 and gain3 parameters control the post-distortion gain.
There are 2 filters for each harmonic, a pre and post-distortion one. The controls for each one are as follows:
The LP HP ^ V switch changes the type of filter (low-pass, high-pass, band-pass and notch).
The left dial in each filter controls its cutoff frequency.
The right dial in each filter controls its resonance (q factor).
The dry/wet parameter controls the mix between the distorted and original signals.

hey zb,

cool device, I didn't know much about hilbert transforms and this device has peaked my interest.

Bug report though, when I put the drive to max it sends full output and stays that way even after bringing the drive back down.
Excellent and very useful! And yes it is possible to overflow the algorithm and make it stick. If I get a second I'll try to debug it, as this is a very useful tool.
