In stock now! NEW Mutable Instruments macro oscillator: PLAITS

Mutable Instruments Plaits Matttech Modular 01.03.18

It’s HEEEEERE!!  🙂 🙂 BRAIDS was one of our favourite oscillators, and an indispensable addition to any rig – especially when it came to portable, live cases – offering a huge array of different tones & techniques…so if that module is anything to go by, this will be a belter!

IN STOCK NOW HERE

(EDIT: SOLD OUT ALREADY – BATCH 2 (ETA: MID/LATE MARCH) ALSO SOLD OUT NOW)

In Olivier’s own words:

“PLAITS is the spiritual successor of Mutable Instruments’ best-selling sound source, Braids. Not just a mkII version: its hardware and software have been redesigned from scratch. Just like its predecessor, it offers direct access to a large palette of easily tweakable sounds, covering the whole gamut of synthesis techniques.

SIMPLICITY FIRST – Gone are the screen, menu system, hidden settings, and the long list of sometimes redundant synthesis models. Thanks to additional CV inputs, and to the use of 3 timbre-shaping parameters per model, Plaits is straightforward to use, and much closer to the ideal of one synthesis technique = one model. What were fragmented islands of sound in Braids are now part of a continuum of sounds.

READY FOR PERCUSSION – Patch a trigger generator or sequencer in Plaits’ trigger input and instantly use the module as a percussive source thanks to its built-in virtual low-pass gate (LPG). An internal envelope generator is normalled to all unpatched CV inputs. Just turn the corresponding attenuverter to add pitch, timbre or morphing modulation. And if plucks and snappy hits are not your thing, patch your own envelope or CV source to the LPG CV input.”
