Hexinverter Mutant Machine

Erica Synths

Regular price CAD$525.00


The Machine began as a quest to create a rich-sounding eurorack snare drum synthesis module to complement the existing Mutant Drums. The project quickly became too large and costly to justify the module being capable only of snare drum sounds. So, the decision was made to learn from the architecture of the TR-909’s snare and kick circuits, to develop a module capable of generating multiple forms of analog percussion, and various other effects.

Like the other Mutant Drums, the Machine has its roots in classic analog percussion synthesis. Even though it can create alien sounds, it still can deliver those classic 909 house snares and kicks if you want them. There are no microcontrollers in the Machine. The signals and waveforms are all generated by discrete components and ICs, for a distinctly analog sound, and user experience. Now redesigned by Erica Synths in collaboration with Hexinverter Electronique the module features a manual trigger button.

Features
  • Unique Inverter Core oscillators form the MEMBRANE. Each analog oscillator has three waveforms to select from
  • Capable of synthesizing everything from heavy-hitting bassdrums to classic 909-style snares and other complex timbres
  • Modular design gives the Machine many auxiliary purposes, great for modular sound design of many varieties, and not just percussion
  • The SNAPPY section is comprised of a voltage controlled noise oscillator, for modelling the noisy part of drum timbres
  • Both MEMBRANE and SNAPPY elements have an external input for replacing the built-in sound sources, opening up many avenues of possibility
  • 13 control voltage and audio inputs, for a fully modular drum experience
  • 7 audio and CV/gate outputs for maximum integration with other modules
  • • dedicated outputs for each WAVE and NOISE oscillator mean you can use the Machine as a complex VCO in your system, when not synthesizing percussion
  • Waveform scanning feature generates complex timbres from analog waveforms
  • The MEMBRANE’s waveforms can be scanned through automatically by the wavescanner’s voltage controlled clock generator, or an external clock or VCO can be used
  • SCAN FREQ CV forms a unique form of timbre control, making the Machine act like a complex oscillator at its WAVES output
  • The ENABLE input allows you to gate the wavescanner on and off with a CV or gate signal
