Brand new, fully assembled, calibrated and tested Monsoon (altered Clouds)*, flashed with the latest firmware of your choice (Parasites (recommended), Original or Beat-Repeat). Originally designed by Mutable Instruments and now discontinued, redesigned by Jak Plugg down to 12hp with the addition of red/green bi-colour illuminated faders for the four granular parameters that show the polarity and level of their CV inputs and the blend knob split into four separate knobs with individual CV inputs.
Built by Monolith Modular (except some SMT components which are factory soldered) using the Jak Plugg designed PCB and matt black, textured PCB material, 2mm thick panel plus self-sourced quality components as per the designer's specification with metal shaft, panel mounted pots, and black and white Rogan knobs (Davies 1900h and micro knobs also available on alternative listing) and black, white, dark grey or red buttons. Also features panel screws and standoffs for extra support over the faders. Assembled by an experienced synth builder using lead-free solder.
Includes 1 Year Warranty, 15cm power cable and 4 x M3 mounting screws or M2.5 screws are available instead on request.
* Mutable Instruments modules are open-source hardware, created under cc-by-sa license which means they can be legally cloned, modified and commercially distributed. So this module while being derived from the original design and schematics is not manufactured, supported or endorsed by Mutable Instruments. However it's functionality is identical to the original and we will offer support if there is a problem with it.
Thanks to Émilie at Mutable Instruments for making her designs open-source and giving a much wider audience access to her excellent modules. If you do use these cloned modules we also urge you to support Mutable Instruments and buy their official products where possible. Thanks.
Designer's Description (Clouds)
PARTICLES, GRAINS AND BIRDS. FLOCKS, SWARMS AND CLOUDS
Clouds is a granular audio processor like no other.
Clouds is focused on the realtime granularization of incoming audio signals, and their transformation into amorphous textures.
Grains of adjustable size, pitch and envelope, are extracted at controllable time offsets from the input signal. Grains are seeded randomly, periodically, or whenever the module receives a trigger.
The textures generated by Clouds are extremely thick, partly because of the large number of concurrent grains (up to 60), partly because of a built-in allpass diffuser and reverberator, smearing the shortest transient into a wash of noise - giving the illusion of an even larger number of simultaneous grains.
