FM or Physical Modelling or…?
The Mysteron Eurorack module from MakeNoise is a very potent sound source – especially for hard, percussive and plucked tonal sounds. It can be used by completely itself, simply by triggering the “Excite” inputs. In fact you must trigger the Excite inputs to get sound out of the Mysteron.
You can guide the pitch, length, degeneration and overtones of the sound and achieve a range of interesting sounds. Since the basic Mysteron sound is quite bright, in-your-face and hard, it is well suited for additional filtering.
Live updating the Re-/De-Generation button produces various degrees of bite, gnarl and tone lengths.
