Mutable Instruments Elements Eurorack Resonator Synth Module DIY Clone

via this auction

"Mutable Instruments Elements Eurorack Resonator Synth Module Clone New Black/Gold Build 2018 MINT!

Mutable Instruments Elements built by an electronics engineer (Momo Modular) with ten years of experience. Calibrated and tested, with factory firmware. Includes screws and ribbon cable. Briefly used only in a smoke/pet free pro studio.

Elements is a full-blown synthesis voice based on modal synthesis – an under-appreciated flavour of physical modelling synthesis with a strange and abstract feel.

Elements combines an exciter synthesis section generating raw, noisy sounds characteristic of bowing (filtered friction noise), blowing (pitch-controlled granular noise), or striking (stick, mallet, hammer or brush sample playback… or bursts of synthetic impulsions).

These sources, or external audio signals, are processed by a modal filter bank – an ensemble of 64 tuned band-pass filters simulating the response of various resonant structures (plates, strings, tubes…) with adjustable brightness and damping. A stereo ambience reverberator adds depth and presence to the sound.

All parameters have a very meaningful and well-delimited impact on the sound. When designing Elements, great care has been taken in selecting parameter ranges and control curves, producing a large palette of sounds – often beyond physical realism – but always well controlled and stable. The “dark spots” of noise and feedback are reached gradually, and they do still react to controls. The module is deliberately menu- and switch-free – what you dial/patch is what you hear!"
