Mutable Instruments BRANCHES is a Bernoulli gate – which 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…

Uses for a single channel of Branches include:

  • Add various random elements to sequencer patches
  • Create quirky drum patterns, based on a single clock input
  • Create random switching between two sound sources (using external VCAs)
  • Create sounds that pan back and forth (using external VCAs)
  • Create pseudo-bitcrushing when clocked at audio rates
  • Turn white noise into flickering static
