Digital Emulation of Distortion Effects by Wave and Phase Shaping Methods
This paper will consider wave (amplitude) and phase signal shaping techniques for the digital emulation of distortion effect processing. We examine how to determine the Wave- and Phaseshaping functions with harmonic amplitude and phase data. Three distortion effects units are used to provide test data. The action of the Wave- and Phase- shaping functions derived for these effects is demonstrated with the assistance of a superresolution frequency-domain analysis technique.
