Orion Ring Modulator is a 64-bit VST for Windows stereo ring modulator. Each channel can have independent settings.

Makes any other synth, piano, human voice, percussion, guitar, or any audio sound crazy, wild, bell like, dream like, like an Exoplanet Geologist broadcasting from near the blue supergiant Rigel over a broken shortwave radio, or any odd thing you can dream up on your own.

32 weird presets. User configurable. VST ID: ORRM.

What The Sliders Mean

Each channel duplicates the same controls. Left side of interface is left channel, right side is right channel.

Some sliders may have more effect when other sliders are engaged, in sometimes unexpected and exciting ways. And louder inputs may have different effects than quieter ones. Some thresholds will be found to engage only with inputs of certain frequencies. Experiment. But I'd recommend you start with the presets.

It's recommended that you put a bit of compression in your signal path after this VST. Here's an example in Reaper, I'm running the virtual synth Fluctus, then EQ, then Dimension Reverb, then Orion Ring Modulator, then a compressor, then light auto pan. Compression helps, all Ring Mods increase dynamics:

  • WAVE is the Control Frequency waveform type. Sine and Triangle usually sound the most musical, but they all have their charms, especially Pulse.
  • PULSE PURITY is a filter that only works when Pulse wavelength is used.
  • LO and HI enable control that prevents runaway feedback. They don't usually need to be changed, but you can change them if you want (sometimes very loud) feedback.
  • DRY / WET is the ratio of dry to affected signal. Bottom is all dry, top is all wet.
  • CONTROL FREQUENCY controls the HZ of the control frequency. It's often the most important setting.
  • OSCILLOSCOPES: Top ones show Control Frequency. Bottom ones show output.
  • REZ: Controls the resonance on an SV filter (State Variable) connected to a Clipper connected to the Ring Modulator.
  • %%%: Controls the amount of voltage going to the second input on the Ring Modulator. It's wired and displays backwards (10 at bottom, 0 at top), because of course it is, and of course it does.
  • MOO1: Controls a Moog-type filer connected to the pitch input of the Control Frequency oscillator.
  • MOO2: Controls an inverter connected to a rectifier connected to a Moog-type filer connected to the input of the Ring Modulator.
  • WHA?: Controls the Pitch setting on an SV (State Variable) filter connected to a Clipper connected to the Ring Modulator.
