Details on the New Tiptop Audio Fold Processor

Fold Processor from Tiptop Audio on Vimeo.

"The Fold Processor is a voltage controlled analog effect ideal for adding a distortion or rough edges to any sound passing through it. The fold circuit is based on the classic diode wave multiplier that adds odd harmonics by ‘folding’ the incoming signal with increased gain. Its noisy analog character is part of the charm.

Internally there are two sections, a wave folder section followed by a sub divide generator. The wave folder creates the classic fold sweeping effect and has a dedicated output jack. The subdivide generator squares the fold output generating 4 more sounds spaced one octave apart, each with its own gain knob, and all are mixed together at the Subdivide output jack. Adjustable bias from the Inject control and Fold knob are both voltage controlled and alter the bias point for the subdivider creating instability of the divider circuit. Overall results can sound evil at times and sweet at others, a true devil."
