Braids, from Mutable Instruments, is a synthesis history book in module form. It provides synthesis models of all the most famous and respected synthesizers throughout synthesis history, from Analog models, to rich FM and wacky wavetables and drum sounds. Each synthesis technique is chosen with the encoder knob, which can easily shift from style to style. The Timbre and Color knobs provide variations to the tone of each synthesis model. Most often, Color is a type of filter, while Timbre effects the waveshape style.
Within each synthesis model, there are a whole bank of parameters that can be adjusted using the encoder knob, including Bit-Depth, Sample Rate, a built in VCA and envelope combo, Quantization, Octave switching, as well as a few other more specific parameters
Braids is much more than just a sound source and boasts an incredible selection of over 40 synthesis models. For an in-depth look at what Braids is capable of, check out the Braids Illustrated Guide created by Bob Borries, or the official Mutable Braids Manual.
