Olivier Gillet is a man on a mission. Not content with releasing two outstanding products in one month (PLAITS and MARBLES) Mutable Instruments today announced the rather interesting and thought provoking STAGES.
- The blue represents the RAMP function, which slides one voltage into another, to create portamento or slewed type effects , this is very handy for smoothing a transition of an envelope into another modulation and you don’t want a sudden transient change.
- The yellow represents the STEPPED function, which allows you to shift from a starting voltage to a CV controllable destination voltage, which can be held until a trigger is received. This section is pretty handy for creating sequencer style functions.
- The red section is the HOLD section, which as the name suggests holds a voltage for a given amount of time, this portion is where you’d dial in the sustain of your envelope.
