Percussa has shared several new videos, demonstrating a variety of ways in which you can use their upcoming micro Super Signal Processor multi-function Eurorack module.
The Percussa micro Super Signal Processor (mSSP) can be used in many ways – as a synth engine, wavetable oscillators, granular synth, sampler, effects processor and more.
The above video demonstrates an 8-voice wavetable synthesis patch, controlled via MIDI. Each voice consisting of a wavetable oscillator with 3D morphing, ADSR envelope, input modulation, MIDI module, and a bus module. The patch also has a delay and reverb module before going to the output module where the signals are routed to the output channels.
The second video, above, explores 4-voice sequencing with the mSSP, with per-voice step sequencer, microtonal quantizer (jazz scale from the SCALA archive), sine osc, envelope, bus routing, global stereo delay & reverb and frequency modulation of all sine oscillators via the input module.
The next video explores subtractive synthesis on the mSSP. It uses 32 modules total, 2 oscillators + SVF + 2 ENVs + MIDI per voice, including an FX chain built into the patch and external SVF cutoff and FM modulation.
This video explores granular synthesis, using a choral sample. It uses an mSSP granular patch, with input (start/length) modulation, and a delay and reverb processor, right before the output module.
The final video explores live stereo input granular synthesis with the mSSP.
The patch in the mSSP consists of a granular module, 2 LFOs for start and pan modulation, an SVF before the granular input, and a delay and reverb module after the granular.
The mSSP will ship with 50 modular synth patches, covering a wide range of synthesis and audio processing techniques. A Mac and Windows editor is also planned, which will give users the ability to do full patch creation and editing.
Pricing and Availability
Production of the Percussa mSSP is being funded via a Kickstarter project. The mSSP is available to project backers for US $549.
