Overview

The Mutable Instruments Rings is the most dedicated and fully featured Physical Modeling Eurorack module. Based entirely around a resonator core, this module needs to be 'excited' or 'strummed' by a gate to be activated. This emulates vibrations of structures simulated by the Rings in 3 different sections; Modal Synthesis mode, Sympathetic Strings mode, and Inharmonic Strings mode that can all be plucked or process external signals. Additionally, Rings uses a unique take on polyphony that lets the previous note 'ring' out and decay while a new note is played. 

Specs: 14HP, 110mA +12V / 5mA - 12V

    Olivier Gillet creates deep and often unusual synth modules that sound spectacular. Look on youtube for some great demos. When I have some more time on the module I will post a thorough review. A keeper! I couldn't be more pleased so far.

  • Might buy a 2nd

    So good I might buy another one.

    A wonderful and highly-regarded module that excels at plucked and struck sounds, like bells, tuned percussion, harps. Definitely very "digital" sounds, but unlike those of typical FM synthesis. Operation is pretty intuitive, but it does have a learning curve simply because the knobs and buttons crea…
