Special Ring Modulator effects

Octaver

The Ring Modulator works great as an octaver (adding a low octave).

Enable the TRACKING parameter, set FREQ at 500 Hz, and turn down HI CUT to 500 Hz or lower.

Tremolo

You can configure the Ring Modulator to act as a tremolo, by turning down Frequency all the way.

"Evil Whammy"

Attach a pedal to the FREQ parameter.
