Unbelievable depth for its size and price
raindeer, 24.08.2020
The quality and depth of this module is excellent. I try to avoid screens and menu-diving in eurorack so that was a major draw and I'd say Plaits gets the level of complexity about right too. The manual is definitely needed though since it is not intuitive enough to learn the functions just through experimentation (for example, the model-select buttons also function as kind of 'shift' buttons for certain functions.)
You wouldn't buy this for any of the models alone since deeper versions of them all are available: the resonator is based on Rings; the waveshaping oscillator is based on Tides; the classic waveforms, chords, drums and noise are good but there are dedicated alternatives if that's what you want... and so on. But to have it all so accessible in 12hp and for this price is wonderful. Sound design is through three knobs which function differently depending on the model (Harmonics, Timbre and Morph) plus FM and there are three attenuverted CV inputs. Honestly, more than the sounds themselves, I think this is a masterpiece in minimalist interface design.
One con: having spent quite a while trying to adjust the Frequency knob I'd gladly give up one or two of the 16 models to have a way of fine-tuning. Although note you can reduce the range of the knob from 8 octaves to a more manageable range.

This is Disting in the world of oscilators
aMatur, 06.04.2021
No wonders you can see this module in almost every eurorack enthusiast system. Plaits doesn’t replace your conventional VCO, but it does almost everything else that normal VCO wouldn’t. Very much like Disting in the world of CV/Fx

It’s literally 16 synthesizers in one module (including mono waveforms, drums, polysynth, vowel generation, string emulation (a-la rings) and much more). It sounds amazing right off the bat even with no other filtering and processing, and the CV possiblities are amazing. You can even switch the synth engine with cv. I love it, it has literally kickstared a mutable instrument addiction in my case. I have already ordered rings, marbles and ripples.

What an awesome awesome awesome oscillator!
SynthNerd, 01.10.2019
This is the perfect drone machine and digital oscillator.

I bought it because i originally wanted to get mutable instruments tides to run the wavetable firmware on it. But as tides v2 doesn’t offer this firmware paul from mutable instruments told me that they fully implemented the firmware in plaits.

And besides the super awesome wavetable oscillator i bought it for, it offers 15(!) different other oscillators that all sound awesome!

you can use it as drone/freerunning oscillator or use its built in decay envelope/vca.

so far i made a few patches with clouds and in a dubtechno track and its exactly what i was looking for.

i would give them 10 stars if i could, also for the custom support, i was asking them for the firmwarehack on saturday, and got a friendly and helpful answer on sunday morning.

keep on the great work mutable instruments!
