1517 THE MUTANT MACHINE Dynamic Analog Percussion Engine
MICROCONTROLLER FREE ANALOG PERCUSSION SYNTHESIS
unique Inverter Core oscillators form the MEMBRANE. Each analog oscillator has three waveforms to select from
capable of synthesizing everything from heavy-hitting bassdrums to classic 909-style snares and other complex timbres
modular design gives the Machine many auxiliary purposes, great for modular sound design of many varieties, and not just percussion
the SNAPPY section is comprised of a voltage controlled noise oscillator, for modelling the noisy part of drum timbres
both MEMBRANE and SNAPPY elements have an external input for replacing the built-in sound sources, opening up many avenues of possibility
13 control voltage and audio inputs, for a fully modular drum experience
7 audio and CV/gate outputs for maximum integration with other modules
dedicated outputs for each WAVE and NOISE oscillator mean you can use the Machine as a complex VCO in your system, when not synthesizing percussion
WAVEFORM SCANNING FEATURE GENERATES COMPLEX TIMBRES
the MEMBRANE‚Äôs waveforms can be scanned through automatically by the wavescanner‚Äôs voltage controlled clock generator, or an external clock or VCO can be used
SCAN FREQ CV forms a unique form of timbre control, making the Machine act like a complex oscillator at its WAVES output
the ENABLE input allows you to gate the wavescanner on and off with a CV or gate signal
ARCHITECTURE OF THE MACHINE
The Mutant Machine is a dynamic analog instrument capable of generating a wide palette of sounds, ranging from various forms of analog percussion to complex drones and oscillations. To achieve this, the Machine features two synthesis sections which are summed together at the final output: MEMBRANE and SNAPPY. Like the other Mutant Drums, the MEMBRANE and SNAPPY circuits began their mutation as classic analog percussion techniques and have been reimagined for 21st century modular synthesis.
The MEMBRANE forms the main body of the sound by way of two analog VCOs, and the SNAPPY section further adds to the timbre by contributing noisy elements to the mix. A noisy CLICK which occurs at the beginning of the SNAPPY sound can have its volume adjusted independent of the main decaying SNAPPY texture.
The waveforms which make up the MEMBRANE can be selected manually by button press, or the WAVESCANNER can be used to automatically scan through the available analog waveforms. By modulating the frequency through which waves are scanned, unique, complex sounds are created.
Experimentation is encouraged by the many modulation inputs and outputs available to you. The Machine features 8 CV and gate inputs for modulation as well as two external audio inputs, for bringing other modules into the Machine‚Äôs core. There are many audio outputs for maximum versatility, allowing you to use the Machine to create drones and alien timbres for use elsewhere in the modular analog system.

‚ÄėSmile, breathe and go slowly.‚Äô ~Thich Nhat Hanh
Post written by Leo Babauta. Follow me on Twitter.
Note: This is an update to the old guide ‚ÄĒ so it should be interesting to readers new and old.
While some of you have been following Zen Habits since its early days (beginning of 2007), many of you are fairly new readers.
To help you through the fairly overwhelming archives, I‚Äôve compiled a beginner‚Äôs guide. Kind of a Quick Start guide.
First, a note: Please don‚Äôt try to go through this all at once. There are days and days worth of reading here. I‚Äôve just organized that so that you can go to the stuff you want to learn about first.
Take it in small chunks.
Where do you start when you have a thousand posts to read through? You start with the best, or at least the most popular.
So here they are:

202 How Accessible is Your Website? 8 Tools to Analyze Your Website‚Äôs Level of Accessibility | Spyre Studios
Designing a website that's as much successful as it is effective takes time, skills, and a lot of testing. Normally, when we're talking about web design and we hear the word testing, the first thing that comes to mind is usability, and that's fine, but when was the last time you sat down to analyze the level of accessibility of your website? Testing on other aspects of your website are important, however, a lot of us seem to neglect our websites accessibility. This can ultimately lead to the loss of a wide range of users and poor elements of design. But not to fear, below we've compiled a set of tools that will help you combat poor accessibility. Every tool is free to use and has been chosen because it's easy to use and offers quality testing.
