Anharmonic is good - "Anharmonic oscillation is defined as the deviation of a system from harmonic oscillation, or an oscillator not oscillating in simple harmonic motion."monsterjazzlicks wrote: I never heard of 'anharmonic' though before? Just enharmonic and disharmomic.
Wat is IRL please? You mean that you were working in IRELAND?
In any event, what I'm trying to say is = "not having an even or odd harmonic relationship with the rest of the source material, such as what you would hear from a balanced modulator"
IRL - is In Real Life, of course! In this case, my 36 year career before retiring was mostly spent in large computer systems digital hardware design. Digital is just special case of analog design.
Updated - reading this again, I think the first part, which I bolded above, expresses it best; where the system of harmonic oscillation is that which is represented in the original harmonic content of the input signal. The Anharmonic content then is that which is not harmonically related to the input, thus anharmonic. The Balanced, or Ring, Modulator from the early PAIA kits I built in the late 70's introduced me to this term. The sound FLOORED me back then, it was INSANE! I feel sort of jaded now, not much gives me that novel BANG anymore. Although, a lot of it really is still cool
