Tour the Malström > Routing and Output - Pg. 225

Let's have a look at the different shaping modes. They can be selected by using the Mode button, or by just clicking on the name of the desired mode itself (see Figure 10.13). Figure 10.13 The Shaper is capable of beefing up your synth patches with saturation, or creating a synthetic meltdown with ultra distortion. Sine--This creates a smooth sound. Saturate--This saturates the original signal, resulting in a rich, lush sound. Clip--This adds digital distortion to the signal. Quant--This truncates the signal and can be used to create a grungy 8-bit sound. Noise--This multiplies the original signal with noise. USING THE SHAPER WITH FILTER B Located at the top of Filter B is a routing button that allows that filter to be sent to the Shaper, creating a very interesting combination of sounds. For example, you can send OSC A to the Shaper, while at the same time split and send OSC A to Filter B. OSC B will also be sent to Filter B and then routed to the Shaper as well.
