Algorithmic drum pattern generator with three channels, voltage controlled morphing betwen drum patterns. Increased morphing will affect the density of the patterns and even create fill-ins.
Grids' "brain" is a map of the typical drum patterns used in (mostly electronic) music, laid out by similarity, trained on a large corpus of drum loops. The module can smoothly interpolate and navigate from one pattern to the other, at the whim of a knob move or a CV. But Grids' knowledge of drum patterns goes far beyond what would be achieved with presets - given a position in the map, thousands of variations can be intuitively generated by controlling the "event density" of each of the 3 channels (bd, sd, hh) - gradually moving from a sparse backbone to a deliciously rich pattern with ghost notes, rolls and fills.
Add CV-control on these parameters and you can add subtle or drastic variations to the drum pattern.Grids has its own internal source of randomness that can unpredictably spice the pattern, in an always meaningful way.
Building the rhythmic foundation of your tracks with Grids is fun, surprisingly intuitive, with modulation and variations possibilities that will rapidly make you forget x0x-style sequencers.
Most generated patterns will work best with channel 1 = BD, channel 2 = SD, channel 3 = HH or percussion, though variations are possible!
Internal Clock generator with a 40-240BPM range. Below 40BPM it´s paused. Pattern reset. Beat indicator/tap tempo button. Latitude/Longtitude knobs with CV input. Pattern complexity/density knobs anf CV Ins for channels 1, 2 and 3. Clock resolution 24ppqn, 8ppqn, 4ppqn. The tap tempo button/beat LED can also be configured as a reset button/beginning of pattern LED. 3-channel euclidean sequencer mode. Alternative output layout with Clock/Reset outputs instead of Accent 2 and Accent 3. Trigger or Gate output mode.
Unlockable items for DIY heroes: * Bonus clock output! * Bonus random gate output! * MIDI interface responding to start/stop/clock messages

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.
