Hey Tom you might wanna try using the 40106 vco I posted in the Lunetta thread as your main clock source for this circuit. Works pretty good!

It all starts with a sawtooth wave. This is quantized by the first S&H chip and turned from a ramp shape into a staircase shape at a rate determined by the clock.

That same original sawtooth wave is also fed into a comparator. It is compared to the audio input. Every time the comparator's state changes (caused by the sawtooth wave or audio input becoming higher or lower than the other) the second S&H samples the current step of the staircase wave.


Has this been abandoned?? I was toying around with it but noticed two problems -

- Changing the sample rate also changes the amount of quantization levels; lower sample rate = more amplitude levels. This could be sorted by phase locking the square wave to the sawtooth wave.

- The speed of the square/pulse wave looks to be prohibitively fast. Say if you want maximum resolution at 20KHz, then a minimum of 40K sawtooth wave to sample it with, and then assuming that 14bits is the maximum fidelity bit depth, that means 2^14 = 16384 possible amplitude levels. Which means the square wave clock must be at minimum 166384x40000 = 655MHz. This must also be variable to give the lowest resolution at the lowest frequency, say 30Hz. 30x2x2 = 120Hz.

Unfortunately, this doesn't look feasible which is quite a shame, the idea of it is pretty clever.

I think probably the only way to do the amplitude quantization is digitally...

does anyone know how the frostwave sonic annihilator works??

hi guys!

i have built modularkomplex's LF398 based rate reducer today (from page 3 of this topic).
i have one issue here. there's a very audible cv, almost as loud as the audio signal. when i turn the pot the pitch of the noise goes all the way up/down.
the effect itself works fine on the audio signal (edit: at least seems so).
i played bass through it and could turn the rate down (1M pot) so much that it sounded detuned (edit: with the cv i guess) and got pitch modulated. but i must have made a mistake so the cv comes through...

any idea what i could have done wrong here?
thanks!

***
edit: just created a new thread here

Hello everybody, my first post Very Happy I have been reading this forum for quite a while, a great level of expertise here, good stuff!
I have been thinking about building a bugcrusher-like-device for some time so i thought it would be a good idea to bump this thread to ask for any updates, schematics and the like. I would prefer a LF398 based device because of better availability.
Thanks a lot for any input!
Greetings,
Nils
