Ringshifter Oscillator controls in Final Cut Pro for Mac
In both frequency shifter modes and the ring modulator OSC mode, the Ringshifter effect’s internal sine wave oscillator is used to modulate the amplitude of the input signal.
In the frequency shifter modes, the Frequency control adjusts the amount of frequency shifting (up or down) applied to the input signal.
In the ring modulator OSC mode, the Frequency control adjusts the frequency content (timbre) of the resulting effect. This timbre can range from subtle tremolo effects to clangorous metallic sounds.
To add the Ringshifter effect to a clip and show the effect’s controls, see Add Logic effects to clips in Final Cut Pro for Mac.
Frequency control: Set the frequency of the sine oscillator.
Lin (Linear) and Exp (Exponential) buttons: Switch the scaling of the Frequency control:
Exp: Exponential scaling offers extremely small increments around the 0 point, which is useful for programming slow-moving phasing and tremolo effects.
Lin: Linear scaling resolution is even across the entire control range.
Env Follow (Envelope Follower) slider and field: Determine the impact of incoming signal levels on the oscillator modulation depth.
LFO slider and field: Determine the amount of oscillator modulation by the LFO.
