Data Corrupter® Modulated Monophonic Harmonizing PLL
The Data Corrupter is a monophonic analog harmonizing PLL with modulation. It takes your input signal and brutally amplifies it into a crushing square wave fuzz tone that is then multiplied, divided and modulated to create a wild, yet repeatable, three-voice guitar synthesizer.
The Master Oscillator is the central nervous system at the heart of the Data Corrupter’s cyberpunk hive mind. It feeds your input to the signal harvester in its original octave (Unison), one octave down (-1) or two octaves down (-2) for maximum compatibility with your preferred instrument and frequency register. Once you’ve chosen your input octave, then the Data Corrupter will perform its calculations and spit out an analog synthesized frequency, which can be pitch-bent for portamento or vibrato sounds by the Frequency Modulator! From there, you can blend in one of eight Subharmonic intervals up to three octaves below the input and mix in a square wave fuzz tone for maximum data corruption.
The Master Oscillator (1) is the central nervous system at the heart of the Data Corrupter’s cyberpunk hive mind. The three-position switch on the Master Oscillator control panel labeled Root feeds your input to the signal harvester in its original octave (Unison), one octave down (-1) or two octaves down (-2). Use the Master Oscillator’s Root Switch to fine tune the Data Corrupter’s tracking response for maximum compatibility with your preferred instrument and frequency register. Once you’ve chosen your input octave, the Data Corrupter will perform its calculations and spit out a synthesized frequency, the octave and/or interval of which may be selected via the Master Oscillator’s eight-position rotary switch.
The Voice Mixer’s Oscillator Control (2) adjusts the Master Oscillator blend.
The Frequency Modulator (3) applies pitch-bend modulation to the Master Oscillator. In Glide mode, you’ll hear a smooth portamento as each note slides into the next. In Vibrato mode the pitch modulates up and down for a retro sci-fi laser effect.
The Subharmonic (4) assimilates the input signal into one of eight lower octave programs between one and three octaves below the original. For a more stable lower octave, set the Subharmonic’s Root Switch to the Unison position, which divides the Square Wave input signal, and removes the Frequency Modulator from the Subharmonic signal path.
To unleash the cracked machine lurking within the mainframe, set the Subharmonic Root Switch to Oscillator and try not to look away as the sonic malware you just installed mangles your input signal into the sum and difference of both the Master Oscillator and Subharmonic with the Frequency Modulator applied to the upper and lower octaves.
If you think you’re brave enough, set the Subharmonic Root Switch to Oscillator and try experimenting with different Master Oscillator and Subharmonic programs to wind up the doomsday clock and inch ever closer to the Singularity. Adjust the Voice Mixer’s Subharmonic Control to set the lower octave volume.
Finally, (or is it?) the Square (5) control located top-left on the Voice Mixer blends in a fuzzed-out square-wave take of your input in its original octave. That’s it. These aren’t the droids we’re looking for. Move along.
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY ABOUT US
Best guitar shop in Ontario. Tony is an absolute gem and a pleasure to deal with. Tons of selection, knowledgeable staff, clean store and great prices.
Just purchased a Seagull S6 QIT online from Picker's Alley. It was shipped the day I ordered it and I received it the next business day. The guitar was much nicer than I expected, a very high quality product, and it came out of the box absolutely pristine, set up perfectly and even in tune. Great product and service. I couldn't be more satisfied.
What a great store. Brands like fender, Gibson, Yamaha, Godin, charvel, Boucher, and Taylor. Lots of new stuff, and some really nice used stuff too. I found the staff very friendly and knowledgeable.
Excellent service. Competitive pricing. Staff is extremely knowledgeable and willing to help. Had nothing but fantastic experiences.
