The Mutant Brain is the central nervous system connecting your modular analog eurorack system to MIDI gear, especially for percussion, polyphonic notes and sync duties! It packs 16 eurorack compatible outputs into a tiny, super affordable 8HP package.
The 4 CV outputs and 12 Gate/Trig outputs are all universally reconfigurable. Triggers, gates, clock divisions and sync signals, polyphonic keyboard playing, velocity, sequencer transport, LFOs - you name it!
Configuring your patch is easy - just assign each output as you like in the configuration utility, then send the MIDI SysEx file to the module and forget about it - the Mutant Brain remembers it all for you.
We supply a convenient download pack of pre-configured, ready to use Mutant Brain patches for some select sequencing and drum machine devices on the market today, easily turning those sequencers and drum machines into a modular control powerhouse!
Designed with live and studio performance in mind, the Mutant Brain does away with wasted panel space and complex menu-diving interfaces, while freeing you from the limited "auto-learn" type MIDI interface. An auto-learn interface sometimes doesn't play well with the limitless combinations of different gear setups which today's modular performers play live with.
