Clouds joins the recently-retired Braids macro oscillator as an incredibly popular design that Gillet, nevertheless, is axing as part of his ‘year with a negative number of module releases.’
Gillet is retiring Clouds and Braids because they are complex, menu-heavy designs, with many hidden functions. He wants his designs to be leaner, more sophisticated, better sounding and more fun to play with.
“Clouds has shown that live granular transformation is an important sound design tool in a modular system,” notes Gillet.
