Laurentide Synthworks has announced that the Mutable Instruments Shruthi synthesizer will live on as a DIY project.
Mutable Instruments announced last year that it was phasing out most of its DIY products to focus on its growing Eurorack business.
Here’s Laurentide Synthworks has to say about their Shruthi:
This is a resurrection of the classic and highly loved Mutable Instruments Shruthi-1. Initially I will be offering the Control PCB, preprogrammed chips and the 4PM (4 Pole Mission) filter board. Eventually I will begin putting kits together for each of the boards as well as the other discontinued filter’s.
When the Shruthi line was discontinued (with the exception of the SMR-4 kit & case, which is still available from Mutable Instruments) I began discussions with Olivier (mad code scientist behind Shruthi and all things Mutable) on continuing it’s legacy. Along with TubeOhm in Europe, we will be supplying Shruthi PCB’s back to the DIY community under our company names respectively.
On 3/11/2015 I will begin selling the Shruthi Control PCB, pre-programmed chips, 4PM filter and custom dark grey translucent plexi-case. The PCB’s are manufactured by the same company Mutable Instruments used and the cases are manufactured by MI forum member fcd72, who also makes the official clear plexi-cases.
