The multifunctional utility module Shades contains three channels of attenuation, attenuvertion or offset generation. Also, use it as a small mixer if needed.
Shades has three channels you can use as active attenuators or as bipolar attenuverters. The polarity of each channel is displayed with bicolor LEDs. Inputs are normalized to fixed voltages (0-5V or 0-10V, jumper selectable) and therefore the channels can be used as offset voltage generators. If no cables are in the individual outputs, they are chained and the module acts as a small mixer. You can mix audio signals but due to the attenuvertion the module is ideal as a CV mixer. The module uses low-noise and low-distortion op-amps as well as resistors with 0,1% tolerances, making it suitable for transposing pitch CVs. The 2020 version has been extended by one LED per channel to indicate the negative part of the waveform and is visually adapted to the newer modules from 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.
