Mutated: Braids

Mutated: Braids - THE macro oscillator. A DIY Eurorack PCB for one of the most popular modules in Eurorack synthesis.

This is a PCB set in the Eurorack format.

Availability: In stock




Voltage-controlled digital oscillator featuring 33 synthesis algorithms from 8 categories:

  • Analog VCO emulation
  • Direct digital synthesis
  • Vowel/formant synthesis
  • 2-operator FM
  • Physical simulation of tubes and strings
  • Wavetable synthesis
  • Filtered/coloured/pitched noise
  • Granular/particular

Bonus features include a note quantizer, sample/bit rate controls, and a basic AD envelope to modulate the timbre when receiving a trigger.


NOTE:  All Mutated modules are designed by Olivier Gillet, and are CC-BY-SA.  

Ground rules:

  • Do NOT ask on the mutable forums or email Mutable Instruments for help.  There is literally ZERO support offered from those channels - don't be an ass.  A number of Facebook groups exist to help with DIY builds, and we're happy to help as well.
  • Do NOT (re)sell these, passing them off as factory modules.  Seriously - don't be an ass.
  • Do NOT be totally scared of SMT.  If you haven't done it before, it's off-putting, we get it - but give yourself a chance.  Learn something.  That's what (we think) DIY is all about.  We're keeping the prices on these low enough that you can afford to try and fail!
  • DO have a ton of fun building them, and use them to create awesome sounds.  Then go buy a Mutable Instruments module and SUPPORT Olivier's designs, directly.

I build 4 of this. all good! (Posted on 2/12/2018)
Great PCB Great PriceReview by eatriwave
The Panel works just fine and looks great. This was my very first SMD build and I wrecked one PCB (and the MCU) in my first attempt, which was totally my fault only.
Did not do so well hand soldering LQFP 48 with lead free solder the first time around. But lesson learned and I resorted to hot air and solder paste for the MCU and voltage regulator in the second attempt. And that second build was absolutely successful. So well recommended. And if you are noob like me order 2 just in case. (Posted on 4/27/2017)
