Diode Ring Modulator

The Diode Ring Modulator - named from the fact that is a diode ring and modulates one signal with another. I first saw it in an article in a 1950's issue of "Electronics" magazine. I was under the impression at the time that the article was written by the first person to apply the idea to electronic music.

Schematic (and other info) can be found at Kevin Lightner's website here and Ken Stone's website here.
