As promised a few pictures of the electric guitar effects we’re working on,
first up, the gamma wave effect.
The gamma wave effect pulls the amplitudo’s either to the 0 line or the -1/1 line, just like the gamma on your monitor does:
The effect basicly makes the wave a lot louder and gets rid of the faint sounds. When on fully applied as in the images above it also creates some distortions due to either making the wave unharmonic-ish or getting rid of the nuances.
Another image taken on a higher oscilation (smaller zoom):
This clearly shows the distortion
(The inversion of peak and valley doesn’t matter for for sound only the transition from a valley to a peak matters)
