Softube has released Mutronics Mutator a plug-in version of the original - essentially a super sweet stereo analog filter and envelope follower, which had a large role in defining the sound of the 1990s. It was used on era-defining records by acts such as Radiohead, Beck, Daft Punk, The Chemical Brothers, Nine Inch Nails, Massive Attack and countless others. But production ended abruptly when a vital component was discontinued by the component manufacturer.

This is how Softube describes it:

Mutator has an analog voltage controlled filter (VCF) for each of its two channels, which can create synth-like filter sweeps on any sound source that is fed into the unit. The filter can be controlled from a number of sources, for example the envelope follower, which sweeps the filter in proportion to the amplitude of the sound source. In Gate mode, the filter is either on or off, and the filter can also be controlled by the on-board LFOs. These have four waveforms, which create filter sweeps in our out of time with the music.

Another very cool option is to use the external sidechain input, to have an external sound source control the filter movements. For example, insert the Mutator on a pad track and have the filter move in sync with a drum loop. You can also link or unlink the two channels for trippy stereo effects, use the Width control to extend the stereo field and use the Mix knob to blend in the original sound source with the mutated sound.

  • 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


Mutronics Mutator is available for AAX, VST and Audio Units
