Mutant Snare

$249.00

From classic electro snares to warping, alien percussion, the Mutant Snare is a radical departure from the static sounds of the 808!

MIX and DRIVE

  •  MIX lets you blend between the SHELL and SNAPPY tones that make up the overall snare drum
  • turn up the DRIVE to get overdriven snare tones with intense harmonics. The purple LED indicates when the snare begins to overdrive
  • like the other Mutant Drums, signal levels have been normalized for modular level input and output (up to 20Vpp)

SHELL synthesizes the drum skins

  • analog bridged-t sinewave oscillators, for those organic-sounding tones we've come to love from the 808
  • TONE control blends between the two sinewaves of different frequency
  • SHELL PITCH lets you tune one of the sine waves, to change the pitch of your snare drum

SNAPPY adds some noise to the snare

  • an analog white noise generator feeds the SNAPPY circuit
  • an external input lets you patch any sound source you like into the SNAPPY generator
  • voltage control of SNAPPY decay
  • SNAPPY feeds into an analog selectable high-pass or band-pass filter
  • voltage control of filter cutoff frequency
  • when nothing is plugged into the cutoff CV input, the SNAPPY envelope OR the adjustable sinewave from the SHELL generator normalize through the CV attenuverter for cutoff CV. A jumper on the back of the module allows you to select which of these internal modulation signals are routed here
  • filter has three resonance settings: classic 808 (low resonance), high resonance, and self oscillation
  • bipolar attenuators (aka: 'attenuverters') on CV inputs
