Vlad Kreimer from SOMA Laboratory has shared a photo of his latest creation, the PULSAR-23 drum machine. Kreimer describes the PULSAR-32 as an organic drum computer.
A number of specifications are already known:
- 4 drum channels: Bass drum, Bass\Percussion, Snare drum, Cymbals\Hi-Hat
- 4 envelope generators with the unique ability to generate a sustain for the drum channels, turning them into noise\drone synthesizers.
- 4 independent loop recorders with the option for individual clocking. They record triggering events, not audio.
- Clock generator with an array of dividers as a very powerful tool for rhythm synthesis.
- Wide range LFO (0.1 – 5000Hz) with variable waveform.
- Shaos – a unique pseudo-random generator based on shift registers with 4 independent outputs, sample and hold and other cool features.
- FX processor with CV control incl. CV control of the entire DSP’s sample rate.
- 2 CV-controlled gates.
- 2 CV-controlled VCAs.
- 2 controllable inverters.
Also, it has MIDI control and synchronization and a lot of smaller modules such as 3 assignable attenuators and 2 dynamic CV sensors for CV generation etc.
In general, there are 52 knobs, 11 switches and over 100 inputs and outputs for patching, Eurorack integration, external mixing and processing, live circuit bending!
When the exact release date is, and what the PULSAR-32 will cost is not yet known.
