Audacity: rectified, but not mitigated!

With the help of some folks on the Audacity mailing list, I have managed to simulate the effects of a rectifier circuit on audio. Here is the sound of both half-wave and full-wave rectification being applied to the music that I posted here last week. MP3 Link.

To me, it sounds strangely like some of the sound effects from the original Star Wars trilogy. Red 5 standing by!
