AWM-3: Analog Wavefold Mixer

the awm-3 is an all analog, real-time, complex wave-shaping (triple wave-folder) 3-channel mixer module with added features of compression and multiple mix modes including matrix mixes. the combination of multiple access points (outputs of various mixes), wave-folding, and compression allow for an extremely wide array of signal processing, including complex chorus-like sounds.

all three channels are identical and can operate independently. they can also be cascaded (connected in series) to obtain double and triple wave-folding. the compressor at the front-end of each channel allows for not only unique wave-shaping, but the ability to send asymmetrical wave-shaped signals through multiple wave-fold stages while preserving a better managed signal process.

with individual outputs for each channel, a master mix (and master level control), as well as three matrix mix outputs as: "mix 1+2" (1 out + 2 out), "mix 2+3" (2 out + 3 out), "mix 1+3" (1 out + 3 out), the awm-3 is wave-shaper, signal processor, and multi-mode mixer.

each channel has independent positive and negative control over wave-shaping, including cv inputs, cv attenuation, bias (wave-fold threshold), and level (wave-fold volume). each channel also has a dry level control. between the dry level, positive wave-fold level, and negative wave-fold level controls, many variations of wave-shaping are possible.

all cv inputs will accept lfo or audio-rate frequencies. the main signal path is dc-coupled. each dry signal throughput can be amplified up to +6db (2 times the input signal) and has a buffered output.

with the addition of a vca inserted before the awm-3 (i.e. vco > vca > awm-3), dynamic wave-folding opens up a high degree of variation for automatic wave-shaping. add the compressor stage, then new and complex sounds can be generated.
