Percussa has released a firmware update for their Super Signal Processor Eurorack uber-module, adding support for VSTs, adding a QuadVCA VST plugin and more.
The Super Signal Processor (SSP) is a sound synthesis platform in Eurorack format, based on a powerful quad-core ARM Cortex A17 processor. It offers 16 input channels and 8 output channels, USB host and device ports, and a micro SD card slot.
Here’s what’s new in the latest update:
- ST2 / VST3 Support + New VST module – The SSP can now host VST2 and VST3 plugins. The software automatically creates a “plugins” directory on your card where you can put VST plugins. Note that the VSTs must be compiled for linux / armhf, not the more common Mac/Windows platforms.
- QuadVCA VST Plugin – The Quad VCA has 8 input and 8 output channels. It takes channels [1,2], [3,4], [5,6] and [7,8] and multiplies the channels and then outputs the result through channels 1, 3, 5, and 6. Output channels 2, 4, 6, and 8 are the inverted versions of the output signals.
- BitCrusher module – the bit crusher has an input for the signal to crush, and one output. It has bits and rate parameters / modulation targets.
- Module Picker – If you navigate in the patcher grid and press encoder 1, you will now go to the module selection screen. You can navigate in the module picker using the encoders or cursor keys and press encoder 1 or 2 to confirm your selection.
Source code for the QuadVCA VST plugin is available via github, and can be used as a reference for building modules to run on the SSP.
Percussa’s Bert Schiettecatte shared this informal demo of the QuadVCA UI via Facebook:
Other recent updates include microtonal quantizing and more.
