Raymond Scott signal path


Recommended Posts

There's a sound in some of Raymond Scott's Electronium pieces that I don't think I've heard anywhere else and I can't figure out how he got it. Sounds like pulse-width modulation, or maybe ring modulation but without the usual pattern of overtones. The "Wild Piece" uses it more or less exclusively:




Any ideas?

Don't know how he did it, but to my ears, it sounds like some kind of resonator (like in the Lexicon PCM processors) or some other circuit working with tuned feedbacks. Could be FM too, but I don't think he could do perfectly-in-tune FM at the time.

It does NOT sound like ring modulation to me.
