Loose Fruit features two waveshapers and crossfader combined into one module, a combination perfect for sculpting sub-harmonic rich timbres: the waveshapers create not only overtones but also a variety of rich subharmonics - each wavehsaper features 10 preset patterns accesible via the state control. Waveshaper 2 two enables high frequency explorations via the 'thresh' knob, while wavehaper 1 enables low frequency horespower via the 'half speed' switch. Loose fruit is digitally controlled with a fully analogue signal path.
All three sections are half normalled together - 'IN 1' of waveshaper 1 feeds both in 1 and 'IN 2', the outputs of both waveshapers feed the left and right channels of the crossfader. Due to this configuration, the module can be used by simply plugging into 'IN 1' and taking an output from 'XF OUT'. Alternatively, each of the sections can be used individually by plugging in to the related input / output. The waveshapers can be used in parallel or in series or in any other conceivable configuration.
Waveshaper 2 has a variable threshold for adding in upper harmonics if desired. Adjust the threshold control until the right LED lights. Select one of the 10 harmonic patterns using 'state 2'. The state CV is summed with this knob so set the state far left for full 'CV' control over entire range. Set thesh low to sound like wavehaper 1, increase to create upper harmonics and pulse-width like effects. Thresh can also be automated via the thresh CV input and the CV trimmer.
The left LED will light up if the input to Waveshaper 1 is above 20mV, under this level the waveshaper will not operate. Choose from 10 different harmonic overtone patterns via the state control, or automate via the CV - state 'CV' is summed with 'State 1' so set the state far left for full CV control over entire range, or adjust for an offset. 'Half speed' drops the effect by one octave.
The crossfader allows the users to mix different harmonics by finding a balance between the right and left channels. The crossfader can be automated by the xf cv control and related CV trimmer
