Softube releases Mutronics Mutator effect plugin

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Dec 19, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Softube has introduced the Mutronics Mutator, a stereo analog filter and an envelope follower which can be used to create mind boggling filter effects on any sound source.

Softube Mutronics Mutator

Mutronics Mutator was an instant success when it came out in the early 1990’s, and had an enormous impact of the sound from that decade. The Mutator can clearly be heard on records by artists such as Radiohead, Beck, Daft Punk, The Chemical Brothers, Nine Inch Nails, Massive Attack and many more.

But the Mutator was short lived. Production ceased abruptly when a vital component was discontinued by the component manufacturer. The original has since then only been available at auction sites, often at prices much higher than the original purchase price. Softube has worked closely with Mutronics to ensure that the plug-in captures every delicate detail of the original hardware.

Mutronics Mutator features

  • Mind boggling filter effects.
  • Control filter sweeps by the sound source’s amplitude, from the LFOs or from an external sound source.
  • Used on many seminal records from the 1990s.
  • Based on technology developed for analog synthesis from the 1960s.
  • Each and every component carefully modeled.
  • Extremely analog behavior of frequencies, phase, distortion, etc.

Mutator for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available for purchase for $219 USD.
