ES10 - Triple Wave Shaper
Let's Go Shopping

The ES10 is a non-linear modifier which can transform a sawtooth wave into a sine wave.

This module incorporates three independent waveshapers for modifying synthesizer waveforms or for processing signals from pre-amplified instruments.

Although originally designed as a waveshaper for the ES20 1973 VCO, this module has been found to be an excellent modifier of electronic and acoustic sounds, and is highly recommended for subtle timbral modifications beyond the range of simple oscillator/filter patches.

Of course, it's uses go beyond this. When used in series, they can be used to add folds to the wave shape. Each extra wave shaper you put in series adds a fold to the waveform. As such, quite a lot of tonal variety/harmonic enrichment can be achieve.

The [JOIN 1-2] switch connects [DC OUT 1] to the input section of [WAVESHAPER 2] while [JOIN 2-3] switch connects [DC OUT 2] to the input section of [WAVESHAPER 3] allowing the signal patched to [INPUT 1] to pass sequentially through all 3 wave shapers. The level of the signal through all 3 stages is defined entirely by [INPUT 1] level control.

The level controls in each stage only affect the input patched to that stages [INPUT x] jack and does not affect the level of the 'joined' signal.
