microcell is a Eurorack format module for granular synthesis. It is based on the Supercell module by Grayscale, which is an expanded version of Clouds by Mutable Instruments. Clouds was discontinued in 2017 and Supercell was released in 2018, running the same core DSP as Clouds but with a significantly expanded interface that includes stereo VCAs, input and output mutes, dedicated knobs for blend controls, and an auxiliary CV input for routing one control signal to all parameters. microcell shrinks the expanded functionality of Supercell down into a 14hp size (20hp smaller than Supercell and 4hp smaller than Clouds), excluding only the CV input attenuators for the most compact possible layout.

assembled and DIY options

microcell is available as a fully assembled module or a complete DIY kit. Choose from gray aluminum or black matte panel options. The DIY kit includes a fully tested subassembly with all SMD parts pre-installed. All you have to do is solder the front PCB components (jacks, pots, LEDs, switches, and headers). The DIY kit includes all parts needed to complete the build.

powerful expanded firmware

By default, microcell ships with the expanded "SuperParasites" firmware which combines code from Mutable Instruments (original Clouds DSP), Matthias Puech (Parasites), and Julius Kammerl (Beat Repeat) into one powerful DSP library. This hybrid firmware was compiled by Patrick Dowling (of the Ornament & Crime team). You'll never have to switch between different firmware versions and recalibrate again, because all eight modes are easily accessible.

shipping info

Shipping ETA is May June 2019. Production is currently underway. Preorder now to avoid missing out on the first batch because quantities are limited. All open source hardware files for microcell will be posted on our Github repo when preorders begin to ship.
