Basically the Mutant snares consistis of two sound generating sections: the drum body "Shell" and the noise floor "Snappy", between which you can crossfade with the MIX potentiometer. The Drive parameter overdrives the snare sound and adds harmonics.
- SHELL: synthesizes the drum skins and beses on analog t-bridge oscillators which already made the 808 sound so organic and deep.
The TONE potentiometer controls the timbre of the drum and PITCH its frequency.
- SNAPPY: Emulates the snares of a real snare drum and is based on analog white transistor noise - patch any external audio signal into the EXT IN to override and to replace the internal noise.
DECAY controls the decay time of the drum, which can be voltage controlled as well.
The Snappy signal passes a filter which has selectable characteristic: either high pass or band pass. The cutotff frequency is voltage controllable. If nothing is patched to the CV input either the snappy envelope or the Shell's sine wave are used as CV sources due to normalizations. Select between three resonance settings: low (like on the 808), high or self oscillation.
