Mutable Instruments Plaits is a multi-algorithm macro oscillator that provides everything from FM to speech synthesis, analog percussion emulation, wavetables, modal synthesis, granular synthesis...whoa, this module does basically everything. Expanding on Braids's strong points and eliminating its pitfalls, Olivier Gillet's Plaits is a perfect bonding of tremendous flexibility and an intuitive user interface.
Built from the ground up and sharing no code or hardware with Braids, Plaits borrows concepts from its predecessor while operating at considerably higher audio resolution and with a refined means of user interaction. For one, it dispenses with that pesky screen to offer even more tactility and immediacy. Additionally, Plaits features a dedicated CV input for the model parameter, easy access to the module’s internal envelopes for modulation of vital parameters, and an integrated lowpass gate with definable filtering intensity and virtual vactrol response time.
Offering a broad survey of synthesis techniques, Plaits promises a vast sonic palette that could find a home in any modular synthesizer setup. Ideal for beginners and modular synth gurus alike, Plaits is an obvious choice for anyone who wants a lot of functionality in a small space and with a modest price tag.
