Call it the Mutable Fun Pack. The Synth Happy Meal. The Family Variety Bucket. The Anushri doesn’t have quite the sound design depth that Mutable’s Shruthi-1 does, but in its place, you get a whole mess of different features. It’s an analog synth, with an additional digital oscillator. It’s got its own step sequencer/arpeggiator. It’s got an 8-bit, bit-crushed drum machine. And it has analog connections for modulars in addition to MIDI, so modular lovers can put it into a Eurorack if they like. In fact, it seems to bring some of the compact, lovable features of Roland’s 101 and 202 into a do-all-that-on-steroids modern format. features:

  • One analog oscillator, switchable to saw, square, pulse width/PWM waveforms
  • Secondary digital oscillator (use as FM source, VCO sync signal, or mix with the analog oscillator)
  • 1- or 2-octave sub oscillator
  • Mixer with external audio input
  • ADSR envelope, plus one simple one-parameter envelope
  • LFO with eight waveforms
  • LFO syncs to arp/sequencer
  • Arpeggiator: up, down, up&down, random
  • SH-101-style note sequencer with step recording
  • Internal clock or external MIDI clock or trigger
  • Digital drum machine with bit-crusher; 10 MHz audio resolution, 1-bit
  • Algorithmic drum pattern generator (so you use the knobs to shape generated patterns, or trigger them with MIDI or x0x-style MIDI programming)
  • MIDI in and out
  • External audio input
  • For modular/analog fans: CV in and out for the oscillator (though that means you have to manually calibrate), filter, amplitude, PWM, gate, and external audio input
  • Separate drum machine audio output
  • Eurorack-ready
  • Update firmware over SysEx, or use an AVR programmer


The GEARSLUTZ Acid Techno Showdown!!

TR8 with a fuzzed up anushri and a volca bass. 151bpm. Made over the weekend, aciddy and techno-ey so it seems rude not put it here.

Gear Porn thread - pics of your slutty setups

...system just over a year ago for FX sound-mangling and drums (neither of my drum modules pictured). The Mutable Instruments Anushri on top of there is one of my favourites. Also love pedals and weird old FX boxes - you can just make out a Yamaha REX-50 under the table. Last major purchase was the...

Favorite Semi-Modular Synths?

Anushri, Grenadier, Telemark. And i've placed my order on a Grendel DC-2E. I've mainly fixed architecture synths, semi-modular is the limit for me to experiment a bit but not too much.
