Axe-Fx III

Blocks Guide Description

Ring Modulators are probably best-known for sci-fi synth and fusion electric piano sounds (or for Dalek/X-wing pilot voices), but they have been used to great effect on guitar as well. Check out the solo on Paranoid by Black Sabbath, Satisfaction by DEVO, or the Blow by Blow and Wired albums by Jeff Beck. A Ring Modulator uses fast changes in amplitude to create tones that are harmonically unrelated to the input. The Ring Modulator block goes beyond the classic effect in that the modulation frequency can track the pitch of the input signal for musically predictable results across the fingerboard.

Owner’s Manual Description

Commonly used on synth and fusion electric piano sounds (or to create Dalek/X-wing pilot voices), the Ring Modulator uses fast changes in amplitude to create subtones (or supertones?) harmonically unrelated to the input. The Axe-Fx II Ring Modulator goes beyond the classic effect in that the modulation frequency can track the pitch of the input signal for musically predictable results across the fingerboard.
