Mutable Instruments Plaits

Details
The Mutable Instruments Plaits builds on the success and design of the Mutable Instruments voltage-controlled sound source – Braids. The Plaits module is a highly versatile synthesis module, providing a varied palette of sounds and tones. The Plaits Eurorack Module features 8 synthesis models for pitched sounds and 8 synthesis models for noise and percussion. This allows you to create virtually any sound you can imagine, with its premium-grade components and functionality making it highly accessible and easy to use. It also features versatile connectivity including dedicated level CV input control and Timbre, FM and Morph CV inputs.

8 Models For Pitched Sounds

The Mutable Instruments Plaits is a highly versatile Eurorack synthesis module designed to create a varied palette of tones and sounds. The Plaits module features 16 synthesis models in total, with 8 dedicated models for pitched sounds and 8 for noise and percussion. The ergonomic and sleek layout features annotated controls and an 8-segment level meter for visual monitoring. The Plaits module features two detuned virtual analog oscillators with continuously variable waveforms. It also includes a variable slop triangle oscillator that is processed by a waveshape and wavefolder. The wavetable oscillator provides you with four banks of 8x8 waves, complete with a chord generator and speech synthesis algorithms for maximum versatility. This allows you to optimise your sound design capabilities, allowing you to create everything from Leads to Pads.

8 Models For Noise & Percussion

In addition to the pitched sounds, the Plaits also features 8 synth models for the generation of noise and percussive sounds. This section boasts a granular sawtooth or sine oscillator with a variable grain density, duration and frequency randomisation. It provides emulation for analog percussion as well, including two flavours of kick drum, snare drum and high-hats. 8 layers of dust.particle noise are also included and processed by resonators or all-pass filters.

Flexible Connectivity

In addition to the synthesis functions, the Mutable Instruments Plaits features a wide range of analog connectivity. It features dedicated CV inputs for Timbre, FM, Morph, Synthesis Model Selection, Level CV input. One of the most unique connection is the AUX output, that carries a variant, sidekick or by-product of the main signal. You can also patch both the output and AUX output to Mutable Instruments Warps for sound experimentation.

Features

8 Synthesis Models For Pitched Sounds
  • Two detuned virtual analog oscillators with continuously variable waveforms
  • Variable slope triangle oscillator processed by a waveshaper and wavefolder
  • 2-operator FM with continuously variable feedback path
  • Two independently controllable formants modulated by a variable shape window (VOSIM, Pulsar, Grainlet, Casio CZ-style resonant filter…)
  • 24-harmonic additive oscillator
  • Wavetable oscillator with four banks of 8x8 waves, with or without interpolation
  • Chord generator, with divide down string/organ emulation or wavetables
  • A collection of speech synthesis algorithms (formant filter, SAM, LPC), with phoneme control and formant shifting. Several banks of phonemes or segments of words are available
8 Synthesis Models For Noise & Percussion
  • Granular sawtooth or sine oscillator, with variable grain density, duration and frequency randomization
  • Clocked noise processed by a variable shape resonant filter
  • 8 layers of dust/particle noise processed by resonators or all-pass filters
  • Extended Karplus-Strong (aka Rings’ red mode), excited by bursts of white noise or dust noise
  • Modal resonator (aka Rings’ green mode), excited by a mallet or dust noise
  • Analog kick drum emulation (two flavours)
  • Analog snare drum emulation (two flavours)
  • Analog high-hat emulation (two flavours)
Other
  • The AUX output carries a variant, sidekick or by-product of the main signal
  • Patch both OUT and AUX to Warps for weird hybridization experiments
  • Dedicated CV input for synthesis model selection. No need to activate a mysterious META mode!
  • An internal decay envelope is normalled to the TIMBRE, FM and MORPH CV inputs: the amount of internal modulation is directly adjusted with the attenuverters
  • Dedicated LEVEL CV input controlling the amplitude and brightness of the output signal
  • The internal LPG can also be directly plucked by the trigger input
  • Two parameters of the LPG can be adjusted: amount of low-pass filtering (VCFA to VCA), and response time of the virtual vactrol
