"This section has special and uncommon distortion modules providing a variety of ways to alter

your sounds, from bit crusher through PWM to wave reallocation.."  (Flexor Manual)

dspLoad 8.80/5.60/5.60

"This shaper applies a bit-crushing (bit-reduction) effect. Amplitude changes of the incoming signal are quantized to bigger steps, downgrading the signal to lower bit depths. As a result, additional harmonics are generated, and the overall sound becomes more brittle and raspy." (Flexor Manual)  Max poly:16

"Curve is a shaper that creates an S shaped curve for

bi-polar audio, or an exponential to logarithmic curve for

uni-polar audio. At an extreme left setting the curve of the

shaper is exponential, and on the extreme right a

logarithmic curve is applied. It is ideal for using with envelopes and control signals, or on oscillators

before harmonic shapers." (Flexor Manual)  Max poly:9

dspLoad 10.90/7.60/7.70

"This shaper flips between the positive and the negative side of the input signal. This is done by pushing the DC of both sides, but instead of clipping, the peaks emerge on the opposite side of the wave, to form a new harmonic structure. The process drastically modifies the incoming signal, transforming even the simplest waveshapes (such as sine or triangle) into bright and complex signals." (Flexor Manual)  Max poly:16

dspLoad 9.90/6.60/6.70

"This shaper, instead of clipping, inverts the polarity of the peaks of the incoming signal, folds them back, and clips them to the zero-crossing point. This produces a special kind of distortion that generates a rich amount of additional harmonics, making it useful for a wide spectrum of sound creation.." (Flexor Manual)  Max poly:16

dspLoad 10.50/7.30/7.20

"This shaper creates a Pulse Width Modulation effect, by offsetting the centered zero-crossing point and´ normalizing each side of the signal. The result of this process resembles Pulse Width Modulation when used on almost any waveshape except pulse." (Flexor Manual)  Max poly:16

"This module shapes any FleXor NBL Saw-shaped oscillator into a new waveform drawn on-screen with the included virtual pencil. The virtual pencil can draw new waveshapes with the mouse, or it can be modulated to draw by its horizontal axis (input X) as well as vertical axis (input Y). WaveDraw has a 64 sample resolution, and it is Non-Band-Limited. The resulting sound has a raw and edgy digital character, reminiscent of the first generation of digital synthesizers. WaveDraw may also be used for wave reallocation to make special bit crushing effects." (Flexor Manual)                                 monophonic

"This module generates synchronized control signals, optimized especially for the FleXor NBL WaveDraw shaper. Combine these two modules, to transform an NBL saw oscillator in to almost infinite amount of complex and evolving waveshapes. Various formants can be generated, as well as audio-rate modulation of waveshape drawing, which produces an aggressive sound character."

"Soft PWM is a shaper that creates a Pulse Width

Modulation effect by applying a logarithmic to exponential

curve. The result of this process resembles Pulse Width

Modulation when used on almost any osc waveshape except pulse. In:" (Flexor Manual)   Max Poly:9

"WaveDraw MK2 shapes any audio signal using the wave-shapes you draw on the module's screen. WaveDraw Mk2 has a 128 sample resolution and it uses linear-interpolation. This makes it possible to use it as a wave-shaper on any audio source without any bit crushing side-effects. Save the different wave-shapes you create with the module as 128 patterns. WaveDraw Mk2 can also be used for modifying control signals such as LFOs and envelopes." (Flexor Manual)                         poly:16

"WaveShaper shapes any audio signal using a waveshape based on an imported wave file. Import wave files into the dedicated panel and save the different shapes with the module as patterns. Wave-Shaper has a 128 sample resolution and it uses linear-interpolation. This makes it possible to use it as a wave-shaper on any audio source without any bit crushing side-effects. Wave-Shaper can also be used for modifying control signals such as LFOs and envelopes."
