  • Product Description

    Peaks by Mutable Instruments provides 4 different functions in a small 8-HP package. Their common point? They are all about generating an audio or CV signal in response to a trigger, and are all focused on rhythmic works.

    Peaks is a dual-channel module – making it very useful for duophonic patches or for controlling/synthesizing the kick/snare rhythmic backbone of a patch.

    Classic ADSR

    • Segment durations ranging from 0.2ms to 8s.
    • Quartic attack, exponential decay, exponential release.
    • Other fancy modes implemented in the code, waiting to be unlocked!

    Peaks’ first function is a no-frills ADSR envelope with segment times going from 0.2ms to 8s.

    LFO and tap LFO

    • 0.03 Hz to 160 Hz.
    • 5 basic waveforms: square, triangle, sine, stepped, random.
    • Waveform variations and morphing for each of these: PWM, slope, folding/harmonics, step size, interpolation.
    • Phase at reset control.
    • Tap LFO can lock onto irregular rhythms.

    Peaks’ can work as a free-running, resettable LFO, or as a tempo synchronized LFO.

    5 waveforms are available, each of them with a shape/morphing parameter: wavefolded sine, variable slope triangle, PWM square, stepped triangle and sampled/interpolated noise.

    A unique feature of Peaks is its ability to lock onto irregular sequence of taps: the module can detect the periodicity of the incoming trigger pattern, and adjust the duration of the LFO cycles accordingly.

    Drum Generator

    • Channel 1: 808 kick model with extra parameters (tune, punch).
    • Channel 2: 808 snare model with extra parameters (tune, decay).
    • Channel 2: A specific combination of settings transform the snare into a modelled 808 hi-hat.

    Peaks can synthesize bass-drum, snare-drum and hi-hat sounds using a digital model of the TR-808 circuits. An alternate drum generation mode synthesizes more aggressive FM-style drum sounds.

    Inputs, controls and outputs

    • 4 parameter edition pots.
    • Channel 1 & 2 trigger inputs.
    • Channel 1 & 2 trigger push-buttons.
    • Channel 1 & 2 CV/audio output.

    Technical characteristics

    • 16-bit CV/audio generation with 48kHz sample rate.
    • Cortex-M3 ARM processor.
    • Open-source hardware and firmware.
    • 8-HP.
    • Easy firmware updates through an audio interface.
    • Current consumption: +12V: 60mA ; -12V: 2mA.
