Critter & Guitari Organelle


The Organelle™ makes it easy to experiment with new ways of making music. It combines playful and intuitive controls with a powerful sound engine. It is limitless in musical possibility and a joy to play.

At the heart of the Organelle’s sound engine is a robust computer that runs patches. A patch allows the instrument to take on different forms. Onboard hardware for sound input and output and mappable knobs, keys and buttons enable patches to synthesize, sample, effect and anything in between!

The Organelle™ ships with a set of common default patches, and new patches may be loaded from a USB drive. Simply select patches from our expanding community-driven online repository, transfer them to a USB drive, reinsert it in the Organelle™ and play!


Don’t see the exact patch you need? You can create it yourself! Patches may be created and/or edited directly on the device as well as on a personal computer. Plug in a keyboard, mouse and monitor and begin customizing. The Organelle™ runs patches created in the powerful computer music programming environment Pure Data. (You can write patches in lower level languages too!)

The Organelle™ is built with community interaction in mind. As you create patches or tweak existing ones you can share them with others!
