Mutable Instruments Plaits is a multi-algorithm macro oscillator that provides everything from FM to speech synthesis, analog percussion emulation, wavetables, modal synthesis, granular synthesis.

Features:

8 Pitched Synthesis Models

  • Two virtual analog models for continuously-variable waveforms
  • Triangle-core oscillator with variable slope routed through a waveshaper and wavefolder
  • FM with variable feedback path
  • 2 separate formants and a variable shape window modulator for VOSIM style filter sweeps
  • Additive oscillator (24-harmonic)
  • Wavetable oscillator (8x8 waves arranged across 4 banks)
  • Chord generator (wavetables or string/organ emulation)
  • Speech algorithms (formant, SAM, LPC), with banks of phonemes

8 Noise and Percussion Synthesis Models

  • Granular sawtooth or sine oscillator (each with variable gain density and frequency randomization)
  • Clocked noise routed through a resonant filter
  • 8 layer dust/particle noise routed through either resonant or all-pass filters
  • Karplus-Strong ("Red Mode" in Rings) with either white noise or dust excitation
  • Modal resonator ("Green Mode" in Rings) with mallet or dust excitation
  • Analog kick emulator
  • Analog snare emulator
  • Analog hi-hat emulator

I/O and Control

  • 2 selection buttons with tactile LED visual display
  • Primary frequency controls (8 octave range)
  • Harmonics timbre and morph timbre dimensions
  • Attenuverters for frequency, morph, and timbre CV inputs
  • Primary 1V/Oct input with -3V to +7V input range
  • Trigger input for internal decay envelope or drum exciter
  • Level CV input for internal LPG or accent control for drum models

Technical Details:

  • 12 HP
  • 50 mA +12V
