Mutable Instruments Blinds Quad VC Polarizer & Mixer
Cat: 616167 Rel: 09 Jun 16
 
4 channel coltage controller signal polarizer synth module - 12HP wide
Notes: Blinds is a 4-channel voltage-controlled signal polarizer. Each channel consists of a polarizer circuit, also known as a four-quadrant multiplier. This circuit acts like a VCA, except that a negative control voltage will cause the output signal to be inverted, instead of being silenced. Blinds' outputs are daisy-chained, allowing adjacent groups of 2, 3, or all 4 channels, to be mixed together.

One can think of Blinds' as a voltage-controlled version of Shades, the control center for all the modulation CVs used in a patch. Many other uses are possible, though. For example, each individual channel can be used to scale/offset a CV; and with audio rate modulation signals, each channel acts like a ring-modulator, with massive potential for drones and feedback patches.

Mutable Instruments Branches Dual Bernoulli Gate Eurorack Module
Cat: 569587 Rel: 10 Apr 15
 
Dual Bernoulli gate synth module, 6HP size
Notes: A Bernoulli gate takes a logic signal (trigger or gate) as an input, and routes it to either of its two outputs according to a random coin toss. The knob controls how fair the coin toss is - with the knob in minimal position, the first output always win, with the knob in maximal position the second output always wins - with random fun in-between. And obviously, this bias is CV-controllable!

Branches packs two such gates in a small 6-HP panel. Get a sequencer to randomly skip steps, randomize drum patterns, dispatch events from a sequence to two subpatches, or patch a monster modular Pachinko machine...

Input specifications: 100k impedance, 0.6V threshold.
Output specifications: 5V HIGH level.
Response time: 15us.
6-HP.
Current consumption: +12V: 10mA, -12V: 1mA.

Mutable Instruments Ears Contact Microphone Module
Cat: 687873 Rel: 01 May 18
 
Unique contact microphone & amplifier, based on Tom Whitwell's open-source module - 4HP
Notes: Ears is Mutable Instruments' take on Tom Whitwell's open-source Mikrophonie module - a contact microphone and amplifier.

A large palette of organic, physical sounds can be generated by scratching, tapping, and more generally collecting any kind of acoustic waves surrounding your modular case - even speaker feedback.

With its built-in envelope follower and gate detector, it can also be the gateway between external audio sources and your modular system.

Ears for your modular:

- Built-in contact microphone soldered right under the front panel, turning the panel and your entire case into a microphone.

- Increasingly spaced ridges on the panel, generating sonically interesting pulses or impulse combs when rubbed. Strike, pick or scratch digital resonators like Rings, Elements or the 4ms SMR.

- High-quality amplification stage suitable for external contact microphones, electro-acoustic instruments like guitars, or plain line-level signals.

Mutable Instruments Elements Modal Synthesizer Eurorack Module
Cat: 569524 Rel: 30 Jun 15
 
Modal synthesis voice module comprising a noisy and impulsive excitation signal generator, and 64-partial modal resonator
Notes: Elements is a full-blown synthesis voice based on modal synthesis - an under-appreciated flavour of physical modelling synthesis with a strange and abstract feel.

Elements combines an exciter synthesis section generating raw, noisy sounds characteristic of bowing (filtered friction noise), blowing (pitch-controlled granular noise), or striking (stick, mallet, hammer or brush sample playback... or bursts of synthetic impulsions). These sources, or external audio signals, are processed by a modal filter bank - an ensemble of 64 tuned band-pass filters simulating the response of various resonant structures (plates, strings, tubes...) with adjustable brightness and damping. A stereo ambience reverberator adds depth and presence to the sound.

All parameters have a very meaningful and well-delimited impact on the sound. When designing Elements, great care has been taken in selecting parameter ranges and control curves, producing a large palette of sounds - often beyond physical realism - but always well controlled and stable. The "dark spots" of noise and feedback are reached gradually, and they do still react to controls. The module is deliberately menu- and switch-free - what you dial/patch is what you hear!

Mutable Instruments Links Multiples & Mixing Utilities Eurorack Module
Cat: 569591 Rel: 10 Apr 15
 
Multiples and mixing utilities synth module, 4HP size
Notes: Links provides 3 utility functions focused on signal distribution and mixing.

1:3 is a 3-output buffered multiple, with an offset error < 0.1%. It is useful for distributing the voltage from a CV output with a large protection resistor to several modules - particularly VCOs.

2:2 is a 2-input summer with unity gains. The sum of the two input channels is distributed to 2 outputs.

3:1 is a 3-input mixer with a gain of 1/3 for each channel (averager). It is particularly suitable for rapidly mixing audio sources such as oscillators, for which a unity gain mixer would have caused clipping.

A 2-color output monitoring LED is available for each of these functions.

Mutable Instruments Rings Resonator Eurorack Module
Cat: 596644 Rel: 18 Dec 15
 
Physical modelling synthesis Eurorack synth module - 14HP wide
Notes: Rings brings physical modelling synthesis to your Eurorack system, from a more modular angle than Braids' models or Elements. Instead of trying to be a complete instrument, Rings focuses on the key ingredient, the resonator, ready to be excited by envelope clicks, trigger pulses, granular noise or any other audio source produced by the rest of your system.

Three families of vibrating structures are simulated by the module, with CV control over their parameters:

- Strings, membranes and tubes as modelled by Elements' resonator section (modal synthesis).
- Strings coupled together and vibrating in sympathy, with controllable intervals between them.
- Strings with a variable amount of inharmonicity.

Rings can be configured so that each new note is played on its own virtual string, while the previously played note(s) still decay(s). This unique take on polyphony allows the module to play strummed chords.

Mutable Instruments Ripples Liquid Filter Module (2020)
Mutable Instruments Ripples Liquid Filter Module (2020) (filter/oscillator/VCA synth module)
Cat: 794968 Rel: 14 Oct 20
 
Multimode filter module
Notes: It filters. Ripples is a classic, big-sounding analog four-pole filter in a small 8-HP package. Over the years it has earned its reputation as a no-fuss, elegant choice.

Ripples has two input paths: one with a drive control, allowing the signal to be distorted (or providing enough gain for the processing of line-level signals), and the other totally transparent, preserving the clean-sounding character of the original version of the module.

Three filter modes are available: high-pass, band-pass, and low-pass. The slope (2 or 4 poles) of the band-pass and low-pass outputs is switchable.

Self-oscillation is available for all modes and produces a clean sine-wave on the low-pass output. Unlike many classic 4-pole designs, this filter does not suffer from "loudness drop" when resonance is increased. The resonance loudness compensation circuit brings a slight tone coloration reminiscent of Japanese classics from the 80s, with a very round and liquid resonance.
The low-pass output goes through an internal VCA. This makes Ripples a good final stage module for an inexpensive, or space-constrained, subtractive synthesis synth voice.

A multimode filter
High-pass, band-pass, and low-pass outputs.
Switchable slope control for the band-pass and low-pass outputs. The slope of the high-pass output varies with resonance.
The low-pass output goes through an internal VCA - the perfect "end of subtractive chain" output!

All the CV inputs you need
Un-attenuated frequency CV, calibrated for 1V/Oct tracking of the self-oscillation tone over 4 octaves.
Frequency CV with attenuverter.
Resonance CV. Self oscillation starts at 4V. Control voltages above 5V are non-linearly compressed, for fine control of resonance overdrive.
VCA level for the low-pass output.

Mutable Instruments Shades Attenuator Offset Mixer Module (2020)
Cat: 794969 Rel: 14 Oct 20
 
Attenuator/offset/mixer synth module
Notes: 2020 update of this versatile three-channel mixer/attenuverter. Versatile and effective, updated with a fresh look to match Mutable's other modules.

Supplier's Notes:
The mixer/attenuverter that does not get in the way.

Shades provides 3 channels of audio/CV processing which can be configured either as active attenuators or as attenuverters.

Unconnected inputs are normalized to an internal precision voltage reference, which can produce either a +5V or +10V constant voltage.

Shades' outputs are daisy-chained, allowing adjacent groups of 2 or 3 channels to be mixed together.

This 2020 revision matches the design language used in the most popular and recent Mutable Instruments modules like Marbles, Plaits or Rings.

Useful in every patch.

Mix audio sources or CVs.

Add offsets to CVs, or change their polarity.

A companion for other modules.

Transpose the output of a sequencer without compromising V/O tracking.

Attenuate/invert CVs sent to modules which do not have attenuverters on their CV inputs.

Control with a knob parameters of other modules that are only accessible through CV inputs (like Just Friends' RUN or the Dixie's PW).

6HP
25mm
+12V:15mA

Mutable Instruments Stages Segment Generator Module
Cat: 686269 Rel: 27 Apr 18
 
Universal, patch-programmable modulation source - 14HP
Notes: Mutable's segment generator is a one-size-fits-all approach to LFOs, envelopes and modulation. A surprisingly creative module with potential way beyond the basics.

Supplier's notes:
ASR envelope, complex 6-stage envelope, LFO, 4-step sequence or switched LFO: Stages can be any kind of modulation.

Not because all these behaviours have been pre-programmed in the module, but because it allows you to describe your own modulations in terms of basic operations: ramp from one voltage to another, hold a voltage at a set level, wait for a trigger and slew. With or without looping.

Whether you need one complex envelope, or several simpler modulations, Stages reconfigures itself according to which of its gate inputs are patched. There is always a role for it in your patch.

That's it. Really, there isn't more to the story.

Self-generating chiptunes? Very weird LFO shapes? Random gate delay? Stages probably does strange and wonderful things when patched in a certain way.

Flexible input/output layout:

The module detects the presence of jacks on its gate inputs to group its segments: whether it is configured as a complex 6-stage envelope, or 6 individual envelopes, or 3+3, 2+4... depends simply on how you patch it. Dummy patch cables might come handy!

When used as a multi-segment envelope, a segment activation signal is produced on all secondary outputs - for example to trigger an external event when an ADSR envelope enters its decay, sustain or release stages.

In case more than 6 segments are required, up to six modules can be chained together thanks to a connector at the back of the module.

Three segment types:

- Ramp segments go from one voltage to another, in a CV-controlled amount of time, with an adjustable curve (accelerating, uniform, decelerating). They are the building block used for the attack, decay or release segments in envelopes... or for LFOs.
- Hold segments stay at a constant (but CV-controllable) voltage for a programmable amount of time. They serve as the sustain or hold segments in envelopes.
- Step segments glide to a target (CV-controllable) voltage, then stay at this voltage for a certain amount of time until a trigger is received. They are the main ingredient for step sequences, but also for building sequential switches or a sample-and-hold.

Looping:

A segment, or a group of segments, can loop on itself: if the last segment of the envelope is included in the loop, the loop lasts forever. Otherwise, the loop remains active while the gate is high, then continues past the last segment of the loop. These two behaviours allow the creation of self-looping envelopes (LFOs), or the sustain stage of a good old ADSR envelope!

Single segment processing:

Even when they aren't part of any group and don't receive any gate or trigger signals, individual segments can perform interesting functions: Ramp can loop on itself and turn into an LFO, Hold can delay a CV and Step can slew it.

Now patch a trigger signal: the self-looping Ramp turns into a tempo-synced LFO, the Hold segment becomes a pulse generator, the Step segment a sample-and-hold.

Mutable Instruments Tides Tidal Modulator Eurorack Module
Cat: 569585 Rel: 30 Jun 15
 
Tidal modulator signal generator Eurorack synth module - 14HP wide
Notes: Tides is all about waves that go up and down, from minute-long cycles to audio rates... This module is Mutable Instruments' unique take on the looping AD envelope generator - pushing this well-known trope to unknown territories.

The core of the module is a digital asymmetric triangle function generator, which can be used in AD and AR modes (for envelope generation), or looping (as a VC-LFO or VC-DO). The triangle generator is followed by a wavetable waveshaper providing linear, exponential, logarithmic, sinusoidal, or arc-sinusoidal shapes for the A and D segments. Then, a second processor applies either a 2-pole low-pass filter to the waveform, smoothing its sharp edges; or a rubbery wavefolder, adding kinks and "bounces" to the waveform. Because Tides has been designed from the ground up to work at audio rates with minimal aliasing, and because all its parameters are under voltage control, it can be used as a unique self-contained synth voice.

Tides' advanced features include:

- Output level CV input (digital VCA).
- Dual outputs: standard unipolar waveform, and "double-shot" waveform with a positive spike during the ascent and a negative spike during the descent. At audio rate, both of them have a different sound.
- Accurate V/Oct tracking with straightforward calibration procedure.
- Freeze input to temporarily hold the waveform.
- Clock input to lock onto a multiple or fraction of a trigger sequence... or audio signal, PLL-style.

Mutable Instruments Warps Meta Modulator Synth Module
Cat: 593673 Rel: 13 Nov 15
 
Meta modulator synthy module designed to blend and combine two audio signals - 10HP wide
Notes: Evolved from the oscillator mixing section of Mutable Instruments' desktop hybrid synths, Warps is designed to blend and combine two audio signals. A variety of wave-shaping and cross-modulation methods - some of them emulating classic analog circuits, some of them purely digital - are provided by the module.

With Warps, the cross-modulated sound can be sculpted with control voltages along 4 dimensions: by controlling the amplitude and distorting the input signals, by smoothly scanning through the collection of modulation algorithms, and by adjusting a timbre parameter controlling the brightness/harshness of the modulated signal.

Since many classic cross-modulation effects work best when the carrier is a simple waveform - for example, a sine wave for ring-modulation or a buzzing waveform for vocoding - Warps includes a digital oscillator offering a handful of classic waveforms. This internal oscillator, which tracks V/Oct and supports through-zero FM, will replace the carrier audio input - freeing up one oscillator in your system for other duties!
