Mutable Instruments Clouds is now officially out of production so I was really excited when Five G told me they had a demo ex in the store.
I picked it up off the bat and brought it home to the rack, excited to add some granular textures to my new Mantis rack.
However no matter how hard I tried to make sense of the controls, trying different types of sources and settings, I couldn’t get it to create anything but completely smeared out blur.
It wasn’t until I discovered that someone in the store had flipped it to the ‘hidden’ spectral processing mode that things finally started to make sense. Flipped it back to Granular and now all is game again! 👍👍
The moral of the story is that if you buy used or demoed modules make sure to check what Firmware and Settings/Mode they come loaded with!
