Warps Meta-Modulator Eurorack Module

Product Information

Evolved from the oscillator mixing section of Mutable Instruments' desktop hybrid synths, Warps is designed to blend and combine two audio signals. A variety of cross-modulation methods - some of them emulating classic analog circuits, some of them purely digital - are provided by the module. With Warps, the cross-modulated sound can be sculpted with control voltages along 4 dimensions: by controlling the amplitude and distorting the input signals, by smoothly scanning through the collection of modulation algorithms, and by adjusting a timbre parameter controlling the brightness/harshness of the modulated signal.

Most cross-modulation algorithms provided in Warps make the distinction between a carrier signal and a modulator signal: the carrier signal will be filtered or modulated to acquire some of the characteristics of the modulator signal. However, some other algorithms emulate symmetrical circuits and do not make such a distinction (the underlying mathematical operation is commutative).

Since many classic cross-modulation effects work best when the carrier is a simple waveform - for example, a sine wave for ring-modulation or a buzzing waveform simulating glottal pulses for vocoding - Warps includes a digital oscillator offering a handful of classic waveforms. This internal oscillator tracks V/Oct and will replace the carrier audio input - freeing up one oscillator in your system for other duties!

Product Features

  • Audio input 1 can be replaced by an internal digital oscillator with through-zero FM. Available waveforms: sine, triangle, sawtooth, pulse, filtered noise
  • Continuous morphing between 7 cross-modulation algorithms: crossfade, cross-folding, digital model of analog diode ring-modulation, digital ring-modulation, bitwise XOR modulation, octaver/comparator, 20-band vocoder
  • Control of timbre richness/brightness
  • Each audio input has a built-in digital VCA with emulation of analog soft-clipping
