Mutes – the first DivKid Eurorack module!

Well well, here we are a DivKid Eurorack module! I’m totally chuffed to have this brought to life after first drafting out a quick line drawing years back. By the time you read this the module will be available as both assembled units and DIY kits and PCB/panel combos at a range of great stores around the world. I teamed up with Befaco who have worked behind the scenes to bring this module to life, the PCBs say “powered by Befaco” which I’m proud to have on there and have them be involved. The Eurorack scene is such a wonderful, supportive and amazing group of people with a wide range of backgrounds. The scene has been great to me in getting started and supporting the videos I make. I’m proud to have a module out that I hope people find useful that’s been made by and will be sold by even more of the great people involved in the scene.

“Mutes is my dream compact performance tool.” Sir Divward Kiddery

But Mutes goes above and beyond basic muting by allowing you to split groups of signals to multiple destinations, making it great for FX dub performing and varied signal routing.

You also get a three position switch giving you: MOMENTARY signal pass through (it springs back to the centre when released); OFF (or muted) in the centre; and ON to the right. We’ve also added vactrols to the circuit giving the switching a pleasing decay for both audio and modulation as well a totally click free muting. This module can add mutes to anything, your mixer, module inputs or outputs, modulation signals, sequencers, gate sources and more.

Mutes was developed by Befaco on behalf of DivKid. Special thanks to Glow Worm Cables for their free cables in the package too.

    1. Outputs aren’t normalled, if you get one you’ll see how packed the PCBs are for something seemingly so simple. No mixing I’m afraid.

    1. Hello, yes I can see how the panel upside would be useful. I’ve got one upside in one case even. But just put the panel upside down. There’s very little graphics to worry about and even with a new panel ins/outs would still be the wrong way around.
