there's a ring modulator plug-in which has edit boxes as well as sliders, and 
it's available at:

The four edit boxes are:
- modulation frequency, in hertz
- amount, as a percent
- waveform: 0 for sine, 1 for triangular, 2 for sawtooth and 3 for pulse
- pulse bias, with range -100 to 100

there may be other accessible ring modulator plug-ins which other people on 
list are aware of. If you know who wrote the plug-in which you've tried, you 
could try and contact them and suggest having better increments for the arrow 
keys and the page up/down keys.

best wishes,

Hello everyone.
I've been tinkering with sound editors for some  time, but have always 

to find ones that will allow for much fine  tuning, sselection and easy 
manipulation without visual assistance. Until  recently I was using goldwave
editor; generally a great programme with some  strange quirks. I just decided 

try audacity and so far I am pretty impressed.  I haven't had much time to play 
yet but I'm anticipating having considerable  success with this software. Well 
done, developers!
One thing that has struck me is the number of  plugins available for studio 
effects and so on. Most of them have easy to use  controls which can be 
manipulated with sliders or number entry, which I like. I  recently got this 
Killer Ring MOdulatorplugin because...well, I admit it, I  want to create Dalek
voices! I'm finding though that I can't adjust the sliders  to fine enough 
increments. There's no field for number entry and the level of  "notches" 

or lowered by each press of the right or left arrow is too  high. FOr example, 
if I want a root pitch of 0.004, the lowest I can get is  0.009, and going up 

0.019, etc, all the way to 9999 I believe.
Any ideas on how I can fix this? Hopefully I'm  being clear enough...I'm still 
pretty new to this stuff and have a lot to  learn.
