R_WARE PORT OF AIRWINDOWS FACET
AW_Facet is a port of the Airwindows Facet. The algorithms have been refined for the VM environment.
TL;DW: Facet is a new kind of hard clip that adds two sharp corners into the wave.
Special R_Ware treatment with added Automatic Gain Compensation (AGC) that keeps the output at a steady level regardless of facet value. Additionally, HQ mode with 4x oversampling is added.
- patch your signal into modules' inputs to apply facet clipping (puts a kink into the waveform control-able by the facet knob)
- patch the modules' outputs to your outputs
- optional: turn on 4x oversampling by clicking the HQ toggle button.
- optional: turn on Automatic Gain Compensation (AGC) by clicking the AGC toggle button to compensate the loss in level an increase of facet introduces.
Facet adds a ‘clip point’ but rather than a hard clip it just changes the ‘knee’ of the transfer function so your peaks can still go super high, way beyond 0 dB if you like. But, they change ‘angle’ at a sharp point which becomes sort of a corner in the sound. Except for high settings it’s both high up in the loudness, and a very gentle ‘corner’: still sharp, but very little change.
