Analog Waveshaper Instruo Tanh is a three channel, all analogue, wave shaper from Instruo. It takes an input signal and outputs the hyperbolic tangent function [tanh(x)] for that signal.
In more useful terms, it adds curves to a signal!
Traditionally the circuit is used to shape a triangle wave to a sine but when used with more complex signals it behaves as a single knob limiter.
The tanh has three independent channels for wave shaping.
DescriptionFor many Max/MSP and/or PD users, the [tanh~] object may be familiar. It is likely a much used secret weapon in many contexts!
Describing what the tanh does to a signal, both mathematically and sonically can be a headache, and not particularly useful. So I will describe some particularly fun use cases to give a bit of context.
