Happy to share the work @Omri_Cohen and I have been doing on a mushroom themed collection of samplers and loopers.
The premium collection contains three feature packed modules:
- Panther Cap, a polyphonic granular sampler and looper
- Truffles, sample slicer with dedicated send and return per slice.
- Hyphae, mini loopers with deep modulation potential.
The free collection contains the little cousins, Truffle and Hyphae.
View the full color manuals and submit bugs.
And a special thanks to everyone who helped test the modules so far
wahey this looks amazing!
Hooray! Congrats on the release! This is such a great set of modules!
Lovely looking manuals! Looking forward to playing with these
Will buy them as soon as I’ll return home to support Your great work.
Unfortunately lately I’ve got so little spare time to play with VCV but Your work deserve respect and support everytime.
so cool! had no idea you guys were working on this together. just picked up my copy
Wait, where’s Omri’s video on it?
‘Polyphonic granular sampler and looper’ sounds very interesting!
Yeah, trying to find video demos of it frantically here … Of course I already bought it all the same, haha. Great set!
If everything goes well, I will publish today a short overview of the modules, and then on Monday a full video about PantherCap. I will then work on individual videos about Truffles and Hyphae In any case, feel free to ask any questions you might have. I will be happy to try and help you out
We’ve been working on this collection for almost a year now, and I’m super excited it’s finally out!
That sounds great! Congratulations on the release , and yeah, personally I first read through the manual, then just went… “yep, this is great” (as can be expected from a collab like this) and bought 'em, annnnd now that I’m trying them out, indeed I’m very happy.
Cheers for the video Omri, and Andrew for another great set of options! I just tried the free version initially but will probably buy it at the weekend.
A few quick thoughts on Hyphae:
I can’t see a trigger input for recording, and had to use Stoermelder MAP to get it recording automatically. Have I missed it, or would that be a feature request? I use guitar a lot with VCV and it’s not really an option to click a button whilst playing. (EDIT: I’ve just realised you can map a modifier to do this, but a dedicated input would be nice).
Is there a way to change the loop length on the micro-looper section? The manual says 0.5 seconds, but shorter would be great. It would be really cool to change the loop points while it’s playing back for granular-style effects as well.
Also, I couldn’t seem to get the trigger input to fire properly, maybe just need to spend more time on it.
Overall, Hyphae could be a great module! At first I wasn’t that impressed until I realised I had to RTFM to work out how to assign the modifiers, and after a while I got some interesting textures looping guitar and playing back at different octaves. That was only about 15 minutes messing about, so it’s got potential. It’s similar to what I’ve done with Simpliciter previously, but without the crashes or any clicking which is something I’ve wanted for a while. Nice work!
Hello there, I have been experimenting with these modules and on the patch below, if I change some of the controls on Hyphae [paid version]. The patch crashes, have u any idea why this is happening?

Thanks for all the feedback.
Currently know. The fixed length is by design, but I’ll let @Omri_Cohen know about your feedback.
For this, I don’t quite follow what you mean. The trigger modifiers start at 50% probability by default. When you set them you can drag up and down to change this percentage. Maybe that is what’s going on?
Hey @ady34 thanks for reporting the crash. However, I wasn’t able to reproduce the crash using your patch. Can you describe wh\at steps cause it to crash for you, if it happens all the time or just some of the time?
Thanks for looking at the patch, It seemed to do it when I moved the settings on the Repeater section of the Hyphae. It went to 1400% of CPU at one point.
Sorry, I’ve not had a chance to look at this but one of the things I like to do with Simpliciter is take a short slice and trigger playback with quite a fast clock, for glitchy/stutter type effects. I couldn’t seem to do that, but I didn’t spend a lot of time on it so I’ll read the manual and have another go.
Ah. So the trigger input won’t restart the playback while it is still playing, that might what’s going on?
Unfortunately I still can not get it to crash for me. Does it happen for you every time you load the patch up? How long does it take before it crashes?
I forgot to look at Panther Cap again, got distracted making this with Truffles…
The best thing here is the original recording was a bit rubbish, but recording into Truffles was an instant ambient generator.
