The Garbler PLL
This module aims to do just what the name implies. You send a signal in and what comes out is a garbled version of the signal. You can send modulation in and change it’s phase and shape, spice up your synth leads with extra harmonics, or glitch out your noises by putting it in a feedback loop.
The module is a bit nerdy in how it works, and I assure you that you don’t need to know any of this in order to get a good result. The Garbler PLL operates by detecting the phase, amplitude, and frequency of the incoming signal and attempts to match these elements. This information is fed to an internal oscillator, which has a sweepable morphing waveform and self waveform multiplication for lots of timbral sculpting. The threshold for syncing the internal oscillator can be adjusted to create track and hold type effects and a slew limiter on the frequency response also can add motion to the garbling. Finally a dry/wet mix is included, for those taming the craziness.
On the whole, the labels have been abstracted with the aim to encourage play. You don’t need to know the math in order to explore the noises available. Slap some LFO’s on the knobs or sample some youtube videos running through it. The only knob you need to remember is the bottom one is a dry/wet mix.
||Audio or modulation.|
||This controls the rate of change that the internal oscillator.|
||Continuously sweeps from sine into triangle and then to saw.|
||This multiplies the number of times the ocillators waveform is repeated in a single cycle.|
||Adjusts the phase of the internal oscillator ± 90°. Setting the knob to .5 will give you 0° shift.|
