909-inspired analog rimshot and clave generator with state variable filter

Like the other Mutant Drums, the Rimshot is capable of going above and beyond vanilla sounds. Expressive CV options, an external input and a multi-mode analog filter let you create unique percussion sounds in your modular synthesizer.

Rimshot or clave - take your pick.

  • Triple-oscillator analog rimshot core inspired by the legendary 909
  • Three modes of percussion synthesis: rimshot HI (classic), rimshot LO and clave (CLV)
  • Voltage control of one of the oscillators' pitch
  • External input to the filter lets you blend in other signal sources - wavetables and noise make for interesting percussion!
  • Rimshot DRIVE control acts as a volume and overdrive control for the rimshot generator

Coupled to an analog multi-mode filter

  • Bandpass, highpass and lowpass modes
  • Self-oscillation of the filter plays nicely when mixed in with the rimshot generator
  • Resonance clipping enabled by default. Feature can be disabled with a switch on the back of the module
  • Voltage controlled cutoff
  • Adjustable resonance

Modulation options sculpt the shape of your percussion

  • The MOD DECAY envelope controls the duration of the Rimshot
  • An internal modulation bus routes MOD DECAY to the filter's cutoff (adjust amount with the VCF MOD control) - perfect for percussive sweeps on the filter when self-oscillating

Designed for the contemporary modular synthesizer

  • Eurorack-compatible control voltage inputs (0 to 5V for full modulation) with bipolar attenuverters
  • A practical analog trigger circuit allows activation of the Rimshot from many signal sources (anything with a positive-going edge lasting 2ms or longer). Most electronic drum pads can also directly trigger the Mutant Rimshot.
  • An accent input accepts analog voltage control (0 to 5V will fully modulate the volume from low to high)
