Neutral Labs have found a way to shift parts of a waveform rather than fold them to create an interesting take on modular waveshaping in Meg.
It’s a deliciously simple module with a couple of knobs, an input and an output, a bit of CV control and a very clean black and white look. It’s not an impressively complex DIY kit, the PCB looks straightforward and there’s not a whole lot to it. Sometimes that’s exactly how things should be.
Meg shifts parts of a waveform up or down. So if you imagine a sine wave and you take the positive bump and move it down below the zero line and the negative dip and move that above the zero line you get an interesting waveform with both sawtooth and square wave characteristics. You can then flatten the waves to push it fully square enjoying the movement and morphing along the way. The effect is like adding pulse width modulation to any sort of waveform.
Simple, effective, easy to build, looks great in your rack and the full kit only costs £43.20. I’m going to be building one soon and will release a full video on it if you would like a bit of help.
