Mutable Instruments - Branches
The Mutable Instruments - Branches is your eurorack modular synthesizer's toss-a-coin machine. It is a gate signal with outs A and B, and with the probability knob, you can decide which signal would 'win' and go to any of the outputs. A brilliant and fun tool to add to any logic or trigger system.
Mutable Instruments - Branches - Overview
A Bernoulli gate takes a logic signal (trigger or gate) as an input, and routes it to either of its two outputs according to a random coin toss. The knob controls how fair the coin toss is – with the knob in minimal position, the first output always win, with the knob in maximal position the second output always wins – with random fun in-between. And obviously, this bias is CV-controllable!
Branches packs two such gates in a small 6-HP panel. Get a sequencer to randomly skip steps, randomize drum patterns, dispatch events from a sequence to two subpatches, or patch a monster modular Pachinko machine…
