Great little module
tomas., 22.05.2020
Pros:
The price you're getting for the functionality of this module is superb - at least for me, the ability to plug in external gear alone, be it a little pocket operator or a synth, or even a guitar is a huge game changer, all that mere for 99 €; that is the piezo pickup built in not considered - which is also fun.
Of course the pros of this module do not end there: they build is sturdy, the gate and envelope follower give you some nice modulation sources from the 'outside' of the electronic world and it comes with a little whipping-top.

Cons:
I've yet to find some more serious ones, but the proximity of the inputs and outputs made it difficult to plug in sources with beefier jack ends so that they don't block the rest of the outputs.

Not just a contact microphone!
Lavi, 22.07.2018
I use this module a lot. The envelope, and the gate received and generated from the audio input, plus its overall characteristic sound makes it an interesting and very useful module in a modular system. Very good build quality - special design and functions!

A valuable addition to modular rig
08.03.2017
This unit is really superb, probably moreso as a quick and convenient way of taking external signals into the modular world.

Being able to turn audio to gate signal is so useful and with the gain control, its really easy to adapt to whatever the source is.

The built in contact microphone is also incredibly useful, particularly when paired with their RINGS module, for getting odd, scratchy bell and bowing sounds.

Great build, nice and small, lovely finish on the panel.

Mutable Instruments are keeping it interesting.
