Rate: Controls the speed of the waveform’s motion. The pulse width of these waveforms is produced by the onboard VCO being kept in a state of flux.
Tune: Sets the fine tuning of the synth voices.
Mix: Sets the blend between clean and synth sounds.
Sub: Adds an additional voice one octave down from the input signal.
Octave: Drops the entire synth sound down an additional octave. Can be devastating.
Shape: Changes the waveform from a sawtooth to a square wave, or vice versa.
Pulse Width Modulation
The Space Rip outputs a choice of sawtooth or square waves that constantly undulate in and out like an accordion. This is accomplished through a type of synthesis called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM). The Rate knob controls the speed of an onboard LFO which continuously alters the waveshape of both oscillators to create an ultra-thick analog sound inspired by high-end, vintage synthesizers.
Tearing the Fabric of Spacetime
Choose your analogy—ripping open the night sky, a zipper the size of a galaxy, the cosmos tearing itself in half like its telophasing in mitosis—point is, it sounds wild.
