Percussa founder Bert Schiettecatte let us know that they’ve released a massive update for their Super Signal Processor (SSP) Eurorack module.
The updates include a completely rewritten multichannel recorder / sampler:
- The recording time limitation has been removed, so you can now record much bigger WAV files, limited by the FAT32 partition file size on the SD card (2GB).
- The input recorder can record up to 16 channels simultaneously.
- All recording can be done at 48kHz, 96kHz and 192kHz at 32 bit.
- You can choose how many channels to record using the ARM buttons for the input and output recorder.
- Every channel has a PLAY and MONITOR toggle button per output channel, so you have full control over how you monitor incoming signals and audition your recordings/samples.
- All editing is non destructive on large files, which means changes are applied when you save the loaded sample using the Save and SaveN buttons. It also means the operations are instant, with the exception of the normalization button, which needs to read file sample levels the first time you use this operation.
- It’s no longer necessary to load WAV files into memory in the recorder, all operations are done directly on the files
The update also features a new Macro module. This new module allows you to control multiple modules in the patcher grid, using one set of global parameters, so you can create patches where you can control multiple module parameters with a single knob.
These modules have been also updated:
- ENV (ADSR)
Other updates include a new preset collection and samples. The presets include a wide variety of patches, covering:
- polyphonic wavetable synthesis
- polyphonic granular synthesis
- polyphonic multitimbral FM and sampling
- sequencing and multi-voice microtonal quantization
- additive synthesis
- polyphonic classic subtractive 12-voice synthesis
- a wide variety of simple patches covering the granular, sampler, … modules
