Freak Shift

Frequency Shifter

The Sketchy Labs Freak Shift is basically a Bode frequency shifter with no oscillator, but with a second, slightly beefier Dome filter which generates signals in quadrature from 0.1 Hz to 10000 Hz, so that anything from a VCO to a slow LFO can be used to drive the shifter.

If an external VCO (most likely a sine wave) is fed to this PDN, it will output the sine and cosine waves required to drive the shifter. The larger range ensures that the shifting will be accurate well down into the LFO range for phasing purposes. In fact, this second PDN will give accurate quadrature (within 1 degree of 90) down to about 0.1 Hz.

The other cool thing about this unit is that you can drive it with any audio source, not just a sine wave. If you've ever wondered how it would sound to frequency-shift Messiaen with Bach, then this unit will answer that question.
