If the modulation wave stays in the range [0:1] then your carrier won't
be nulled out. If the modulation wave ranges over [-1:1] then then
carrier will be completely suppressed (assuming that the mean value of
the modulation wave is 0) and you'll be left with just the sum &
difference frequencies from the carrier & modulation.
