Info

Warps Parasites

Warps is a multi-function cross-modulator by Mutable Instruments.

Warps Parasites is an alternate firmware by Matthias Puech, extending the original modes and adding completely new modes.

To change modes, hold the "Int Osc" Button and turn the Algorithm knob

Warps icons are extracted from Warps panel design, available on Github under CC-BY-SA-3.0 license.
