#haxbli waveshaper

Waveshaper is an analog distortion processor. It performs clipping and nothing else, but gives the user lots of control over the amplitude transfer function.

#Status

Waveshaper is in the prototyping phase.

#Design goals

  • Repairable, hackable, and made to last
  • Controls change parameters consistently; no fast or slow regions
  • Continuous parameterization of distortion curve; no modes or "voicings"
  • Low noise floor even with high gain
  • Flat frequency response
  • Predictable dynamics
  • Left-to-right signal flow on the front panel
  • Outputs balanced, line-level signal
  • Accepts balanced or unbalanced line-level signal
  • Tabletop design; spacious front panel; all knobs are the same size
