Not sure what sound sources you want in your modular system? With Mutable Instruments Braids, you can have them all, and more...

  • Sound source module for Eurorack
  • An oscillator? Well, it's a bit more than that...
  • Analogue synthesis, digital synthesis, vocal synthesis, FM, simulations, wavetables and noise...
  • Adjustable bit-depth / sample-rate for a grainy or low-fi output
  • Built-in AD envelope with 6 preset shapes to modulate timbre at the reception of a trigger
  • Auto-gate feature automatically resetting the oscillator phase (or triggering the internal AD envelope) whenever a large change in pitch CV is detected
  • Auto-calibrate feature digitally scaling the 1 V/Oct CV input to compensate for inaccuracies in CV converters… or to be used creatively to achieve other tunings than 1 V/Oct
  • V and/or Gate controlled scrolling message with text editor
  • Width: 16 HP
  • Current draw: +12V: 15mA ; -12V: 15mA ; +5V: 85mA

Mutable Instruments Braids is a voltage-controlled monophonic digital sound source.

Sound source… like an oscillator? Not really.

Most of the timbres Braids generates are so complex that approaching them with a classic analog modular setup would require a full case of oscillators, filters, VCAs, waveshapers and ring-modulators – that’s why Mutable Instruments refer to it as a macro-oscillator – intricate digital synthesis algorithms wrapped in oscillator’s clothes.

With Mutable Instruments Braids module, each algorithm is controlled by two continuously variable parameters, Timbre and Color, both of them voltage controllable. Very often, these parameters simultaneously affect several dimensions of timbre, creating very complex movements which would be hard to generate with a traditional setup.

    Modular synthesis is great, but sometimes the power to drop in some samples is what you want: enter the mighty ADDAC 111 Ultra Wav Player!

    • Wav file player for Eurorack systems
    • Better control for loop size and start point compared to the ADDAC 101, with cv attenuator separate from initial pot. Bipolar inputs are now allowed as well
    • Dedicated controls for file selection
    • Individual skip with state (up or down)
    • Independent random gate in
    • CV input (all files mapped to 0-5v, allows sequencing of files)
    • Dedicated loop settings state (one shot / loop) with external control
    • Dedicated sample rate on/off state with external control
    • Width: 16 HP
    • Current draw: 150 mA
  • £223.00

    Add a bit of digital sampling to your analog modular system and world with the ADDAC 101 Wave Player, which offers a load of control

    • Four variable settings, Loop Size, Initial Position, Sample Rate and VCA controlled either manually through the corresponding front panel knob or externally from a CV input.
    • Two sound outputs: one pre-VCA (with a pre-volume knob) and one post-VCA (located in the VCA section).
    • An Envelope Follower CV output.
    • Loop Size - dynamically control the size of the loop, by trimming down the total duration to a smaller size.

    • Initial Position - dynamically control the initial point of the loop, also allowing scrolling through the file duration.

    • Sample Rate - dynamically change the sample rate resolution, altering the pitch of the playback.
    • Voltage Controlled Amplifier - analogue VCA to dynamically control the overall volume of the sound output.
    • Envelope Follower - a CV output that changes according to the playback amplitude (post-VCA), with controls for level and decay. It also features a led monitor for easy visualization.
    • Led monitors - visualize current state of Size, Position and Rate controls.
    • Skip / Loop switch - set the Gate/Digital input to either a file access mode or re-trigger mode.
    • Playback modes - set playback modes between Loop / One Shot | Forward / Random.
