    At audio range frequencies (with appropriate driving circuitry and bigger transformers) these make a wild effect for synth or guitar! Very growly and metallic. :)

    Hey Alan!

    That's really excellent! if you plan on doing a sequel, you might also want to show how you can get full AM by applying a DC bias to the LO port along with audio.
