Product information "Mutable Instruments - Ears"

Ears is an amplifier with built-in contact microphone. The user can generate noises and percussion sounds simply by scratching, rubbing or tapping the surface of the module. In addition to audio material, the circuit also emits Gate and CV signals. Therefore, Ears can be used as an analog controller as well. Thanks to its Hi-Z input, it is also possible to employ the module as an amplifier for external microphones, guitars or line equipment. The amp provides up to 40 dB of gain.

Ears is Mutable’s take on Tom Whitwell’s Mikrophonie module. Compared to the Original, this circuit offers a better signal-to-noise ratio and less distortion. The built-in microphone is located behind the front panel. A golden touch plate shows the exact position. Besides tapping, a lot of other hand movements result in exciting sounds as well. Furthermore, it is possible to use items like a piece of paper to create sound. A little hint: The throughout noisy results are perfect raw material for physical modeling components such as Rings.
The level of the amplifier can be adjusted using the module’s potentiometer, up to 40 dB of gain are available. Thanks to the Hi-Z audio input, Ears can also be used for external microphones, instruments and even guitars. After a signal has been leveled, it can be tapped off the out socket. Another connector transmits gate voltages (+8 V), which are generated as soon as the audio level reaches a certain threshold. It can be edited via jumper on the circuit board. The threshold options are 1 V, 2 V or 4 V. Beyond that, there’s an envelope follower generating control voltages depending on the audio level. Using a second jumper, it is possible to choose between three response times.

Mutable Instruments

With a background as a software engineer at Google, Émilie Gillet began her journey on synthesizer design on 2010 offering DIY kits for the (now discontinued) Shruti, Ambika and Anushri hybrid digital-analog synths. Quite rapidly an enthusiastic community was formed via a very vibrant forum. By 2013, seeing the potential of the format, she moved completely to eurorack releasing the much acclaimed Braids macrooscillator and Clouds texture (granular) synthesizer, one of the most cloned modules so far. As with the previous desktop synths, all firmware and schematics are avaialble online under open-source license. Émilie continues to run Mutable Instruments single-handedly from a small apartment in Paris.
