I know that there are several alternate versions of firmware for Mutable Instruments modules available (Parasites, Bees-in-the-Trees, Sheep, etc.). One of the reason I’ve been drawn to MI’s modules is because the firmware is open source and hacking the firmware is possible (and is made easy by the available Vagrant environment).
I’ve been working on a version of firmware for the Warps module that turns it into a sound source with a four modes of operation:
Modes 1 & 2: dual oscillators with independent shape control per oscillator that can be morphed between triangle/saw/variable width pulse where the two oscillators can be separated by +/-2 octaves (mode 1) or fine tuned to create a unison effect (mode 2).
Mode 3. 2-operator FM where the carrier frequency ratio can be modulated.
Mode 4. 3-operator FM where the carrier and second modulator frequency ratios can be modulated.
I’m curious to hear about what others have created either for the purpose of learning or filling some gap or deficiency in their system.
