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.

Mutable Instruments call 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 by means of 45 or so fully-realized synthesis algorithms, featuring multiple oscillators, wavetables, filters, VCAs, ring modulators, and so on under the hood.

Astonishingly sophisticated sound-generation

  • 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.​
  • Awesome for crazy complex waveform synthesis​.

Have a listen

Any Sound You Like

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.

Meta-Parameters

‘Timbre’ and ‘Colour’ controls affect multiple different parameters per mode, morphing through all the sweet spots and ensuring every sound is lush, gorgeous, and useful.

Built-In Envelope

Using the trigger input and built-in AD envelope, each algorithm can even become a self-contained synth voice. No other modules required.

Digital macro-oscillator

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.

Each mode represents a different, essential, and beautifully realised synth technique, with often very complex meta-patching going on behind the scenes. One, for example, features seven stacked and de-tuned sawtooth waves, while another passes a single oscillator waveform through a variable filter matrix to simulate vocal formants.

Incredible variety of sounds

Braids can produce an extraordinary variety of sounds, from 808-style drums to bowed strings, from bells and gongs to humanoid vowels, and from trance leads to Moog-ish basses. There’s almost nothing this module can’t do, especially in combination with other modules in your Modular system.

And what’s more, it offers unprecedented ease-of-access to these sounds, with the heavy-lifting of the initial patch creation happening under the hood. All you have to do is select a mode, and use the two tone controls to find the precise flavor you want.

In short

  • Made for Modular, Softube’s Eurorack platform.
  • 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

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
