Interview with Olivier Gillet (Mutable Instruments) | Keith McMillen Instruments
Great interview with Olivier from Mutable - lots of nice thoughts on the nature of synthesis, on designing electronic products, and so forth. I particularly like his list of what's inspiring him. Good stuff.

Looking back at 2013 | Mutable Instruments
Lovely yearnotes from Olivier at Mutable Instruments, especially if you're interested in what it's like running a modern, small boutique hardware companies. Really excited to see what's next from them - must get around to finally building some music around the Shruthi.

A note about Anushri's unavailability | Mutable instruments
"A day of support at Mutable Instruments’ is more commonly populated with “If you see a 100kHz square wave at this node, it means the integrator charges itself very fast, probably through the op-amp compensation cap only, not the external cap – check for a bad solder joint on C9” rather than “Have you checked that the power cord is plugged?” (though it happens). Furthermore, once kits get built, ideas of mods and firmware hacks crop up – all requiring expert guidance. All in all, the “support” role at Mutable Instruments is more like “product engineering – the lost levels” – and that’s why, following the introduction of a product – support can be done by no other than the designer of the instruments themselves…" Still, MI's products are getting increasingly lovely. I've always been tempted by a Shruthi, and the Anushri looks lovely.
