Softube - Braids by Mutable Instr (Modular Add-on)

Braids, by French Eurorack pioneers Mutable Instruments, is not an oscillator.

It sort of looks like one, with fine and coarse pitch/frequency controls, a v/oct input, and voltage-controllable tone/timbre controls.

It even sort of sounds like one, in as far as it outputs audio.

But it is not an oscillator.

So what is it...?

Mutable Instruments calls it a macro oscillator, but even that is an understatement. It’s a hugely sophisticated digital synthesis engine, able to produce and manipulate complex sounds – classic waves from vintage synths, bells, resonant filters, plucked and bowed strings, vocals and vowel/formant sounds, wind instruments, percussion, noise, granular clouds and more – by means of 45 or so fully-realized algorithms, featuring multiple oscilla- tors, wavetables, filters, VCAs, ring modulators, and so on under the hood.

Each mode is a different algorithm, and produces a different variety of sounds as you turn the two tone controls, Timbre and Colour. These controls are pre-programmed to do different
things per algorithm, often adjusting multiple parameters in the set-up at once to tour the sweet spots. And of course they can be CV controlled.

In a sense, Braids can be looked at as both an encyclopedia of classic synthesis techniques, and a tool to bring them into the present-day, with tremendous sound-quality and ease-of-use to match.

Features:

  • Macro oscillator featuring 40+ fully-realized digital synthesis algorithms
  • Produce millions of different sounds easily – classic waves and telecoms babble, bells and whistles, percussion and ambience
  • Just two controls morph through the sweet spots of each algorithm
  • Great for triggered percussion
  • Awesome for crazy complex waveform synthesis
  • Phenomenal for glitchy out-of-control modulated sounds
  • Incredibly deep, but easy to use
  • It’s like a library of the greatest synth sounds of all time
