Mutant Snare Analog Drum Synth

Hexinverter Mutant Snare Analog Drum Synth

The Hexinverter Mutant Snare is an analog drum synthesizer optimized for use in Eurorack modular synthesizers. The module features a plethora of control parameters including drive, shell tone, shell pitch, decay, cutoff, mix, snappy, a res switch, and a switchable 12dB filter that can be used for band-pass or high-pass filtering. The module is capable of everything from classical snare sounds to corrupted and unusual percussion sounds. 

Mutant Snare Features

  • 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 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
  • 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
