BUILT MODULE – Jakplugg Open Source – uTides mkII (8hp) with black FR4 panel

£149.99 (exc VAT)

uTides mkII is a smaller remake of Tides mkII from MI

This listing is for a fully calibrated module. Includes power cable and mounting screws.

The attenuverter pots glow red/green to show incoming control voltage.

It is normal for the frequency attenuverter pot to glow red if a cable is not connected.

It is because there is an internal voltage that the jack normals to, and the LEDs just measure whatever is on the jack input. once you connect a patch cord to it, then zero will be “off” like the others.

Tides is all about waves that go up and down, from minute-long cycles to audio rates… This module is Mutable Instruments’ unique take on the looping AD envelope generator – pushing this well-known trope to unknown territories.

The core of the module is a digital asymmetric triangle function generator, which can be used in AD and AR modes (for envelope generation), or looping (as a VC-LFO or VC-DO).

The triangle generator is followed by a wavetable waveshaper providing linear, exponential, logarithmic, sinusoidal, or arc-sinusoidal shapes for the A and D segments. Then, a second processor applies either a 2-pole low-pass filter to the waveform, smoothing its sharp edges; or a rubbery wavefolder, adding kinks and bounces to the waveform.


What sets this 2018 revision apart from its predecessor is the introduction of additional output modes, producing variations (shifted in amplitude, time, phase or frequency) of the main signal.

And of course, a redesign from scratch focused on accuracy and audio quality.
