Building a comb filter in Pure Data Vanilla from scratch.
A comb filter is a filter created by adding a delayed signal to itself, creating constructive and destructive interference of frequencies based on the length of the delay. All we have to do is delay the signal a little bit, feed it back into itself (pre-delay), and we get that pleasing, high-tech robotic resonance effect.
There’s no talking on this one, just building the patch, and listening to it go.
