"All-analog Squawk Sound Engine
No microcontrollers or digital emulation present; the Mutant Chicken actually chooches a real chicken for that pure, analog tone!
Just like the other Mutant Drums, there is a eurorack-compatible Trigger input to activate the chicken. Longer gate durations mean longer squawks.
A hi-fidelity mic capsule buried in the depths of the chicken's body captures all of this analog warmth and amplifies it up to modular-levels for processing through your eurorack system at the SQWK OUT jack.
Pneumatically-driven for maximum power; a massive tank means you should never run out of Squawk energy.
Over 300 lumens of Voltage-controlled Radiance to Accompany Your Performances
Utilising high-power modern LED technology, the Mutant Chicken features 9watts of voltage-controlled LED power for sensory feedback! A custom driver circuit takes eurorack level signals and converts them into up to 300 lumens of radiant luminosity.
New Old Stock analog opto-isolator (vactrol) technology adds that distinctive analog slew to the Brilliance CV, while also protecting your modular system from complete destruction.

Research and development of the Mutant Chicken has been quite a journey, spanning years of intense research and development. There were times when the whole project seemed in doubt and only bloody-minded commitment kept us going.

No effort or expense has been spared, from sourcing rare new-old-stock parts, to the use of pricey opto-isolators for that unmistakable analog slew, to finding the brightest, most powerful LEDs available on the market.

I got this from Stacy from Hexinverter and it’s time to get it into the hands of a real monster. It’s unfortunate that Hexinverter will be closing operations this year, those were some great modules. Celebrate the goodness and get the Mutant Chicken!

Take note - there are a few minute scratches on the white of the front panel from moving around in the box over the years."
