Center Clipping and Harmonic Interpolation Wavefolder

Expanding on a concept discussed but never implemented by Don Buchla, the Flamingo introduces Center Clipping and Harmonic Interpolation to analog synthesis.

Center Clipping is a method of shaping a waveform from the inside out. Independently pulling the top half or bottom half of a waveform toward the middle. Fun.

Taking it a step further, Overtone adds another dimension to the analog waveform gymnastics by sliding and inverting the top and/or bottom of the waveform back on itself creating new types of wave shapes and shifting the fundamental in and out of the waveform.

The complex wave shaping capabilities of Center Clipping come at a cost. Center Clipping is a destructive process that can dramatically reduce the amplitude of waveforms. Harmonic Interpolation is the process of attempting to restore the center clipped waveform by allowing the analog circuitry to guess what the waveform should look like. Results will vary.
