Assignment #3: Due Tuesday March 20th

Using the provided patches as reference (download link below), build a “ring modulation” patch in PD with additional [key] or MIDI [ctlin] control over its elements. Although in its most basic form, ring modulation is just signal multiplication, as you make a richer “carrier” or source signal (in class, ours was a microphone input) and as you play with the relationship between the “carrier” and “modulator” frequency, your results will quickly become varied and interesting.

You may build upon the patch we made together in class (similar to the first example in the ZIP attached) or come up with your own scheme of relationships. Download the attached ZIP of patches to get you started with the components / “objects” you will need.
