How to make cw pitch modifier go down in pitch instead of up

Post by Gaslight_Twilights » Mon Sep 23, 2013 5:01 pm

Okay, I looked and haven't found anything on this topic, and I'm sure there is a very simple answer to this and no doubt you are all scoffing at this one and uttering Marie Antoinette-esque chuckles whilst reclining in your Caluco Maxime Cabana beds, eating bon bons and caviar ;) Hopefully I'll taste this cake soon, lol. I'm using pitch modifier B on a patch where I want the pitch to go down instead of up as it does when you turn the knob on the pitch mod. I've tried a diode and an inverter, but nothing to any avail. I am modifiying the pitch with an ADSR. What do, planetZ? What do?

Download CWModulars Quad Pitch Shifter as that is the finest module for this.

Move as many pitches south (down) by dragging the squares around Middle C.

I also place the modifiers from S|C and BCM/CWM pre Oscillator, then having a Sync'd pair of Oscillators can adjust the Pitch from either PMod, just in case you weren't looking for an effect.

There's also this one if you can select the pitch properly, I have not verified the Octave yet as first tries seemed random.
But it's a niche approach.

Thanks again :) Hmmm having trouble using this pitch is still going up lol. I have MVC C freq going to pitch mod, from pitch mod to Quad pitch shifter, and then to osc. Should quadpitchshifter be before pitch mod?

What I'm trying to do is make a pitch drop with my bass

Just use the Quad w/o a PModifier.
Send the audio from Bass into the left and right channel of the Quad Pitch Shifter.

I am using this on my SE-1 analog synth, which is my Bass instrument.
I have a patch with presets already for the ECC83 LcHc, Flanger and Quad.

The Bass parts can already go really low naturally, but this Quad Pitch Shifter will work wherever you place the little Squares by Middle C.

I like the Filter Tracking I get in the midrange of the synth so I am taking 2 pitches south an Octave, and the others remain by middle C.

Using a really long portamento value makes the descending glides sound like Zues descending from Olympus.... :o
